Today, ProgressVA launched a petition with MoveOn.org for Virginians to express their opposition to bills before the General Assembly that insert the government into women’s private medical decisions. And in just a few hours over 9,000 people signed their name and spoken out – and , we need you to join with us.
The two bill are HB 1, which would define a fertilized egg as a person and could outlaw abortion under all circumstances and restrict women’s access to birth control, and HB 462, which will traumatize women by forcing some to submit to an invasive, transvaginal ultrasound before seeking an abortion.
It’s simply really: women’s medical decisions about her body should be between her, her family and her doctor. Keep government out of it. Make your voice heard. Stand up and tell Virginia’s lawmakers to stop the war on women.
