Important Message from Bob Marshall about Protecting Virginia's Children and Parental Rights!

I received the message below today from former Virginia delegate Bob Marshall, a hero for life! We need to stop this evil legislation. Even if you don't live in Virginia, send the governor a message through his chief of staff. Governor Youngkin's resistance to the abuse of children can help parents in other states push back against the mutilation and moral destruction of our children and grandchildren! Please take action!

Write Governor Youngkin:
via his Chief of Staff, Jeff Goettman -
or his Policy Director, Ali Ahmad to VETO HB 609 and SB 237

Thank you, Delegate Bob Marshall

Governor Youngkin:
Please VETO HB 609 and SB 237 to prevent minor’s access (without parental consent) to Abortifacients, Abortion, Contraception, Sterilization or “Transgender” Drugs. Please include the policy points below in your VETO message for HB 609 and SB 237 to secure public support for your actions!
“Contraception” means any FDA approved Drug: HB 609 and SB 237, lines 18-20, state, “‘Contraceptive’ means any drug … intended for use in the prevention of pregnancy … or for other health needs, that is legally marketed under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. § 301 et seq.),” The phrase, “other health needs” includes “transgender” FDA approved drugs. School counselors or anyone could provide these dangerous drugs behind parents’ backs.

FDA “approved” Mifepristone and Misoprostol, used for drug induced abortions, would be allowed for “other health needs.” Planned Parenthood’s Guttmacher Institute states (March, 2024) drug abortions accounted for 63% of all abortions in the USin 2023. [Medication Abortion Accounted for 63% of All US Abortions in 2023—An Increase from 53% in 2020 | Guttmacher Institute]

Planned Parenthood’s Guttmacher Institute also noted (10/31/23) that, “medication abortion is approved by the FDA for use up to 10 weeks of gestational age and it is used safely off-label at later gestations.” [Medication Abortion | Guttmacher Institute.] Medical News Today cites the World Health Organization as saying drug abortions are “safe” through 12 weeks, and the Royal College of OBGyns claims drug abortions can safely be used up to 24 weeks! How far along can you take the abortion pill? Safety, access, and more (

Contraception includes Sterilization: HB 609 and SB 237, at lines 16-17, provide that, “‘Contraception’ means an action taken to prevent pregnancy, including the use of contraceptives or sterilization procedures.” Minors could consent to surgical or drug-induced sterilization.

“Sterilization” is not defined in HB 609. It could mean surgical sterilization and sterilizing drugs that produce gender mutilation.

Minor consent to Contraception: HB 609 and SB 237 state at subsection B, line 25, “B. A person shall have the right to obtain contraceptives and to engage in contraception.” No age is stipulated, so male and female minors can consent on their own to birth control.

No Parental Consent: HB 609 and SB 237, subsection C., lines 27-29, provide these rights “… shall not be infringed upon by any law, regulation, or policy that expressly or effectively limits, delays, or impedes access to contraceptives, and contraception-related or information. …” (Contraceptives include abortifacients.) So, a legal parental consent requirement for minors would violate HB 609 or SB 237.

Attorney General may Prosecute Parents: HB 609 and SB 237 state, lines 52-53, that:
“The attorney general may commence a civil action on behalf of the state against any person that violates or enforces a law, regulation, or policy that violates the provisions of this chapter.”

Thus, complete strangers can pressure children to take abortion drugs, contraceptives, abortifacients, undergo gender mutilating sterilization surgeries, all protected by the Attorney General. Parents who try to protect their children from permanent physical, emotional or spiritual harm could be prosecuted by the Attorney General!

Planned Parenthood could sue Parents: Any individual or organization which provides birth control or sterilization could sue minors’ parents who object.

Abortifacients Redefined as “Contraception”: HB 609 and SB 237 include abortifacients, redefined as contraception, to fool women who might oppose abortifacients.

In l952, Planned Parenthood’s Medical Director wrote: “. . . any biologic method that would prevent ovulation or fertilization merely prevent(s) life from beginning. . . . Measures designed to prevent implantation fall into a different category. Here there is a question of destroying a life already begun.”
[Abraham Stone, M.D., “Research in Contraception: A Review and Preview,” presented at the Third International Conference of Planned Parenthood, Bombay, India, Report of the Proceedings, November 24-29, 1952, Family Planning Association of India, 101.]

A 1963 U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare survey noted: “All the measures which impair the viability of the zygote at any time between the instant of fertilization and the completion of labor constitute, in the strict sense, procedures for inducing abortion.”
[“A Survey of Research on Reproduction Related to Birth and Population Control” (as of January 1, 1962), U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare, Public Health Service, publ. No. 1066, Washington D.C., U.S. Government Printing Office, 1963, 27]

No Conscience Protection or Religious Exemptions: HB 609 and SB 237 have no conscience exemptions or religious liberty protections for individuals, institutions, or health care providers and thus violate Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, a 2014 US Supreme Court decision which held that privately held for profit corporations cannot be forced to violate the owners’ religious beliefs or conscience rights.

No Informed Consent: HB 609 and SB 237 do not require informed consent.

Medical Personnel Forced to Comply: HB 609 and SB 237 (lines 54-56) state: “ Any individual … or patient, adversely affected by an alleged violation of this chapter may commence a civil action against any person that … enforces a law, regulation, or policy in violation of this chapter.” Therefore, doctors, nurses, etc., who refuse sterilization, abortifacients, birth control or transgender or sterilizing drugs, even for minors, can be sued.

Only your VETO can protect preborn children, preserve parental rights and medical freedom. NO amendment to HB 609 and SB 237 can “fix” these bills which directly threaten the lives of preborn children, morally compromise minors and destroy the sacred parent-child and doctor-patient relationships.
