Video: The Neckels Discuss the “Craziest Thing” They Ever Heard – Mark Obenshain’s Miscarriage Bill

Putting a bill that would have made miscarriage a CRIME that women would have had to report to the police within 24 hours or face JAIL TIME?!? Yeah, that’s Mark Obenshain and his Senate Bill 962 (“A BILL to amend and reenact § 32.1-264 of the Code of Virginia, relating to reporting of fetal deaths; penalty”). What’s possibly even more infuriating, if that’s possible, than Obenshain’s legislation, is the fact that he’s now going around Virginia whitewashing his record, pretending none of his past extremism ever happened, that he’s suddenly a “moderate.” Apparently, Mark Obenshain thinks Virginia voters are all complete idiots. And we would be if we believed him…

P.S. Let’s also not forget that Mark Obenshain voted for the failed transvaginal ultrasound measure in 2012; repeatedly introduced amendments to prohibit state funding for “any

organization providing abortion or abortion counseling services;” sponsored a bill to prohibit women from having an abortion beyond 20 weeks of pregnancy; sponsored “personhood” bills to effectively outlaw abortion and many forms of contraception (plus embryonic stem cell research). He also waged war on contraception at James Madison University when he was a member of the school’s Board of Visitors. Sensing a pattern here?
