Regulating Abortion Mills in Virginia: HB 1428 Faces Committee Vote on Thursday

Pro-abortionists love to spout rhetoric about making abortion "safe, legal, and rare," but they really only care that it's legal for all nine months (and a little longer for some. They oppose common sense measures even to protect the mother's life and health. You would expect feminists to be outraged by abortionists who use unqualified personnel to give anesthesia or don't have medical equipment to revive a woman who goes into cardiac arrest, etc. But the fact is, most only seem to care about abortion being protected. A few dead or maimed women are collateral damage -- especially poor, minority women who are the most likely victims since most abortion mills are located in the inner cities. Medicaid is the engine that propels abortion and fraud is rampant. See the Planned Parenthood Washington State fraud case.

On Thursday the Virginia Senate Committee on Education and Health will take up HB 1428 which would require abortion mills to abide by the same regulations that cover other free-standing outpatient surgical facilities.
It is a common sense measure to prevent "house of horrors" like Kermit Gosnell's in Philadelphia. The fact is that abortion is a dirty business. If you need proof read Lime 5.  Abortion may be legal and it's always unsafe for the poor baby, but at the very least women should be protected from money-grubbing butchers in the front alley. To track the bill go here.

Please e-mail the committee members asking that they report the bill out of committee. This committee is considered the graveyard for any bills that restrict abortion at all. It is heavily democratic and most of the senators support killing babies. Unfortunately, they don't seem to care much for women either. If you live in Virginia put your address on your e-mail. If you don't live in Virginia, send an e-mail anyway. Let these politicians know that the eyes of the country are on what they do. Even a few e-mails can make a big difference as a delegate's wife told us!
