Trust Virginia's women
May 2, 2012
The Washington Post reports, "NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia rated General Assembly members on their performance last session, just days after the Virginia Chamber of Commerce issued legislative report cards of its own. NARAL based its rankings on a number of highly contentious abortion-related legislation. Among them was a bill that, before it was amended, would have required women to undergo a vaginal ultrasound before an abortion."
Progressive Point: Here in Virginia, the Governor and other conservative lawmakers don't trust women to make their own decisions. Virginia women are now forced to get ultrasounds even when they don't want them. It is difficult to trust the judgment of legislators who are steadfastly against government intrusion--except when it comes to the private medical decisions of women.
Too many Virginia legislators are ignoring us and interfering with private medical decisions that should be between a woman, her family, and her faith. Virginia's women need our elected officials to put our interests above their ideology.
