Democrats staged a pre-emptive rhetorical strike today against Republican legislation that they said seeks to outlaw abortion and might even put some forms of birth control in legal jeopardy.

Del. Bob Marshall’s “personhood” bill, HB1 – the first piece of legislation introduced in the House this session – says that from the moment of conception, unborn children have “all the rights, privileges, and immunities available to other persons, citizens, and residents of this Commonwealth.”

In a conference call with reporters this afternoon, Democratic lawmakers pounced on the bill.

Del. Charniele Herring, D-Alexandria, called it “reckless and divisive” and “an abhorrent attack on women’s rights.”

In answer to your question about the phrase, . . . the fraudulent idea of "choice":

We know that the word "choice," as used in "pro-choice," is just code for "abortion," as in "pro-abortion" rights.

In that sense, the political advocates of "choice," really mean "abortion," not "choice."

Else, they would respect and give equal value to people who choose life and pro-life positions.

For that reason, promoting abortion as choice is simply a fraudulent idea, isn't it?

personhood is a back door to outlawing all contraceptions.
