HB 1 would require that the Commonwealth to grant constitutional rights to fertilized eggs

**Even though my link is a petition to stop it, I am in favor of passing it. It was the best 'article' I could find.

Wow. I'm all for the rights of the unborn but isn't this taking things a bit to the extreme?

Not sure I'd want a fetus to have the right to bear arms. Talk about an interesting pregnancy. "Oh, what a beautiful baby boy. Wait, there's more! Is it twins? Oh nope, it's just your baby boy's Winchester 30.06"

If whales at Sea World deserve Constitutional rights then there is no reason for fetuses to not have them too.

Next on the list...cockroaches begin filing lawsuits for cruel and unusual punishment because the poisons sprayed to kill them take too long to act. They deserve a quick and humane death.

Yeah, this times 10000. This basically outlaws abortion in Virginia. If I were a woman, you better believe I'd be moving out of VA.

This really serves no purpose. Depending on what part of VA you are in DC is no more than a 3 or 4 hour drive away and if you live in northern va especially arlington you can literally walk into dc. This only makes the abortion clinics in dc more money.

I wonder how this will impact the fertility clinics in the state?

Now this is what makes me so angry in regards to religion. Obviously this law was passed with religious beliefs behind it, yet they're not forcing their religious beliefs on anyone?

But for example if we request for all people to be treated equally then we're shoving a gay agenda down their throats. Even though allowing that to happen doesn't effect them in any way they still claim that something is being forced on them.
But when the shoe is on the other foot they have no problem passing a law that may actually effect someone else who doesn't see things the same way. Welcome to hypocrisy 101.

That's one of the beefs I generally have with Republicans. How can you claim to be a party of limited government, and then try to make laws about love?

To clarify- I believe it passed but is waiting for our gov. to sign it.

Yeah and I don't see it holding up in a higher court either.
