Embarrassing Day for Virginia
RICHMOND, VA -- Today, Virginia's Senate passed the "Ultrasound" bill, HB 462, which mandates an ultrasound for all women seeking an abortion.
"Today's vote continues the humiliating turn to which Virginia Republicans have subjected the people of this Commonwealth since they exerted control over our government this year," said DPVA Chairman Brian Moran. "Over the last few weeks Republicans in the General Assembly have made Virginia a national joke and today Senate Republicans delivered the punch line. No matter what Bob McDonnell and his cadre of fringe extremists think, the General Assembly has no business mandating a procedure on a woman, invasive or not."
