Richmond, VA (AP)
A day after Virginia Republican legislators dropped a bitterly contested requirement that women undergo invasive pre-abortion ultrasound imaging, the intrusive procedure has been dropped from a companion bill.

    I think it is about time that someone stood up for the innocent babies who are being murdered, this legislation will make it manditory for those individuals wanting to murder these babies see the baby(not fetus)before continueing with the procedure. With this new requirement, hopefully this will change the minds of those individuals and they will chose life for their babies, just as their parents did for them. And just remember that Adoption is always another option.

    Finally a great idea maybe the mother will think twice before commiting murder .

    If a woman would have been required to have invasive pre-abortion imaging prior then I think it only fair that the man who is also co-creator of the fetus be required to have an invasive rectal exam prior to her being able to have an abortion. Seems fair to me!

    As the Chairman of the Frederick County Democrats, I am proud to say that this and the 'Personhood' bill have both died. I just hope the voters of Virginia don't forget the extreme agenda of the Republican Party durung this session.
