Letter to Virginians on Governor McDonnell’s Lack of Support on Pro-Life Legislation HB1

Dear Virginians:

It is a shame when after years of pro-life steadfastness, Governor McDonnell’s commitment gets severely blurred by the sweet wine of Vice Presidential ambition.  Intoxicating and crippling, his drunken desire to play fiddle with Massachusetts Moderation dulls his senses and infuriates his supporters.  Thank goodness for sober Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli who fearlessly grabbed the wheel at a Family Foundation reception on February 15.  Governor McDonnell sat speechless and dumbfounded as our Attorney General Cuccinelli guided Virginia in the right direction by unequivocally pronouncing HB1 constitutional after Governor McDonnell stumbled in a long-winded slurred speech of nothingness when asked if he would support HB1.

It was unconscionable for Governor McDonnell to pretend in front of 200 people that he did not know if House Bill 1 is constitutional. HB1 declares that life begins at conception therefore parents would be able to assert a civil suit in the case of wrongful death of their preborn child (i.e. drunk driver killing a preborn child).  Governor McDonnell knows full well that the language in HB1 has already passed the scrutiny of the U.S. Supreme Court in 1989.  In addition, he knew full well that Attorney General Cuccinelli had already publically declared numerous times that HB1 was constitutional.  Codifying “life begins at conception” in a wrongful death bill is purely stating Science 101.  Any Regent University graduate knows this.


I do not know about you, but I am starving for Republican leadership who will fearlessly lead with conviction and principle.   If I was Governor McDonnell’s political consultant, I would tell him to do three things:  sober up from the lure of Washington, publicly declare his support for HB1 before RINO’s on the Senate Health and Ed Committee try to kill it, and tell Mitt Romney if he does not like McDonnell’s commitment to those principles, he will have to cross McDonnell off his short list of Vice-presidential running mates.  Oh, four things:  Support HB1 because he knows it is the right thing to do.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
