    Women Protest Anti-Abortion Legislation in Virginia. What else can we do?

    Women Protest Anti-abortion Legislation In Virginia | Fox News

    The silent protest was over bills that would define embryos as humans and criminalize their destruction, require "transvaginal" ultrasounds of women seeking abortions, and cut state aid to poor women seeking abortions.

    Molly Vick of Richmond said it was her first time to take part in a protest, but the issue was too infuriating and compelling. On her lavender shirt, she wore a sticker that said "Say No to State-Mandated Rape." Just beneath the beltline of her blue jeans was a strip of yellow tape that read "Private Property: Keep Out."

    Let's go citizens of Virginia! Thank you for standing up for your rights, which will help protect mine.

    What else can we do to support our rights to control our own bodies?

    "You know, when they came and took away my fourth amendment I kept my yap shut, what the hell, I really didnít have anything to hide anyway. When they grabbed up my second amendment I sat still and bit my tongue because, truth be told, Iím allergic to guns. But here we are, you with your cold hard fingers wrapped around the neck of my first amendment and Iíve got to shout as loud as I can, because if I donít, before you know it, you wonít let me say nothing at all"

    So, does this mean if the womens groups protesting, are sucessful, then those accused of a double homocide when they kill a pregnant woman resulting in the death of the fetus will only be tried for one homocide?

    Good for Virginia. I don't see the problem here. If a woman wants to get an abortion, she still can. However, perhaps she should see what she is killing before it is done and determining the age of the unborn child is also somehow a bad thing?

    Please read the last page of your other thread. The entire protest is bumpkis.

    In summary, the bill doesn't require trans-vaginal ultrasounds and Virginia Planned Parenthood already requires ultrasounds prior to getting an abortion.
