Yesterday, Governor Bob McDonnell signed the Virginia Ultrasound Law, making the Commonwealth of Virginia the 8th state to ensure that women have all the necessary information on their preborn baby before choosing abortion. As pro-lifers, we believe that a mother should always be presented with not only an image of her child via an ultrasound but all the necessary medical and psychological information about abortion before consenting to the life-ending procedure. I came out right away and commended Governor McDonnell for signing this important legislation which will save lives and spare mothers the trauma associated with abortion.
Over the past month, the radical rhetoric used by Planned Parenthood and their allies in objecting to the simple law was asinine. Many of them began comparing an ultrasound to rape! Can you believe that? Talk about being extremely insensitive and even demeaning towards victims of rape.
Unfortunately, Governor McDonnell, and Virginia’s Delegates and Senators have been getting a ton of bad press and were being bombarded with calls from these crazy abortion advocates. This harassment must be stopped. We must combat this with encouragement to our elected officials who cast a vote for LIFE even against the onslaught of negative calls and negative press.
So today I am asking you to take a few moments to make a phone call, send an email or write a letter. They need our support. Click here for a list of Delegates and how they voted. Click here for a list of Senators and how they voted. To find out how to contact your Virginia legislator, click here.
