A bill that would define a fetus as a person and set the stage for Virginia to abolish legal abortions passed a key Senate committee Thursday morning and now heads to the full Senate for a vote.The so-called personhood bill already passed the House of Delegates. Gov. Bob McDonnell has not indicated if he would sign the bill, citing legal concerns. However, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, the state’s top legal adviser, backs the measure.The Senate Health and Education Committee passed the bill with an amendment on an 8-7 party-line vote during a busy morning meeting in which they also approved a bill mandating women receive an abdominal ultrasound before getting an abortion.
Yes, Virginia, that is an actual human being in that womb....http://washingtonexaminer.com/local/virginia/2012/02/personhood-bill-gains-momentum-virginia-senate/304616
RICHMOND — The Virginia Senate on Thursday voted to re-refer a so-called “personhood” measure defining life as beginning at conception back to committee, killing it for the 2012 session.The Republican-controlled Education and Health Committee had approved the measure, introduced by Delegate Robert G. Marshall, Prince William Republican, on a party-line 8-7 vote Thursday morning.But Thursday afternoon, Senate Minority Leader Richard L. Saslaw, Fairfax Democrat, made the motion on the Senate floor to continue the bill to next year. He was backed by Majority Leader Thomas K. Norment Jr., James City Republican, who said legislators needed more time to study the issue. The motion passed on a 24-14 vote.

Perhaps he should go find himself a baby to adopt that was forced into this world and is now starving in the streets, due to his and other zealots, religious beliefs!

People are usually "starving in the streets" because of welfare and drugs. You can thank a liberal.
Take your hilarious run for cover over Hussein Downgrade and his heinous plan to detain people without trial or appeal. YOU haven't addressed that --- and I keep asking why.
Excerpt from the S & P reportCompared with previous projections, our revised base case scenario now assumes that the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts, due to expire by the end of 2012, remain in place. We have changed our assumption on this because the majority of Republicans in Congress continue to resist any measure that would raise revenues, a position we believe Congress reinforced by passing the act.http://www.standardandpoors.com/ratings/articles/en/us/?assetID=1245316529563
