BREAKING: Virginia “Personhood” shelved until 2013 same possible for forced ultrasound bill

Delegate Englin of Virginia’s 45th district just emailed me regarding the “personhood” and forced ultrasound bills:

“The Senate actually took up House Bill 1, the “personhood” bill, today.  Democrats moved to re-refer the bill to committee and carry it over to the 2013 session.  That motion passed on a 24-14 vote.  While technically, procedurally, the bill is still alive, as a practical matter, this kills it.  Moreover, unless a special committee meeting is held to address the bill between now and the end of the year, the bill procedurally dies.

This is great news for all Virginians, but Bob McDonnell’s bullying ultrasound mandate is still working its way through the process.  The Senate “passed by for the day” the ultrasound mandate, so I expect they will debate and vote on it tomorrow.  If we continue to keep up the pressure, we may have a shot at killing this one too.”

    His forced ultrasound is a form of rape if it is done to a woman unwillingly. There is NO excuse for this. I hope this gets shelved, too. Thanks for letting us know!
