VA Dems, as promised, abort decades of pro-life laws

"Abortion takes a human life" bannerVirginia’s liberals Democrats have reversed numerous pro-life laws, some of them dating back decades, in yet another example of sweeping changes that have come to Old Dominion.

Olivia Turner of the Virginia Society for Human Life tells OneNewsNow that state lawmakers “wiped out” laws such as health and safety requirements, a 24-hour waiting period, and the requirement to offer women ultrasounds and counseling.

In 2001, Virginia lawmakers passed health and safety legislation that protects women from unscrupulous abortionists, then strengthened those laws in 2011.

Turner says pro-life activists worked for years to urge passage of those laws only to witness the Democratic majority eliminate them this week. 

OneNewsNow reported in a Jan. 28 story that Democrats were expected to charge ahead on abortion-friendly laws just as they have pushed and passed anti-gun legislation.

“The effect of the vote on two bills,” Turner advises, “was to quite literally rip out all of the expansive informed consent regulations that had stood the test of time since 2001, and had saved probably thousands upon thousands of babies' lives.”

Once signed into law by Governor Ralph Northam, which is a certainty, the new law will also allow nurses to do abortions in spite of testimony in the House and Senate that such an allowance would increase complications from abortion.

Turner says it is true that elections have consequences -- consequences that can only be changed in the next election.
