VA GOP Delegate Submits Legislation to Make Anniversary of Roe v Wade “Day of Tears” in State


Apparently, this is not a joke. Or maybe it’s just a really bad joke. Or maybe it’s right-wing extremists, following the election of Trump/Pence, feeling emboldened? Whatever it is, we all have to fight this crap, whether it takes place in Virginia or nationally. Just appalling.

P.S. Obviously, even if this monstrosity passes the Republican-controlled Virginia General ASSembly, Gov. McAuliffe will veto it. Which should make crystal clear the urgency for Virginia Dems to hold the Governor’s mansion in 2017. Can you imagine a Republican legislature AND a Republican Governor, what kinds of horrific legislation they’d pass into law? DO NOT LET IT HAPPEN.

P.P.S. An astute reader points out that there’s no way that this legislation could possibly pass, let alone be signed into law, by January 22, 2017. So…in addition to being an extremist, Del. Cline is, well, not the brightest bulb…

    How about a bill designating January 20, 2017 as a Day of Tears?

    • That’s really going to be a day of tears. And all the days to follow, I fear…

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: much of our leadership in Richmond has misplaced priorities. Even if this is just for PR, it shows just how little they care to understand what a woman goes through when they exercise their right to choose, and shows just how much they like shaming women in general.

    Remember folks: next year we can put a stop to this. Virginians in 2017 get the first large-scale electoral answer to this year’s disastrous General Election season. Vote for progress, vote blue.
