Gov. McDonnell– Please veto HB 462, the mandatory ultrasound/waiting period bill. This legislation serves only to place additional financial and emotional burdens on women seeking a safe, legal medical procedure. As a conservative who has vocally opposed government involvement in private, personal medical affairs, I’m sure you understand how this bill contradicts these values.
I’m disturbed at how increasingly anti-woman today’s political discourse has become, and it’s even more disturbing to see it stemming from my own state legislature. I encourage you to show your support for the women of Virginia– veto HB 462. Thank you.
