RICHMOND, Va. - A proposed "personhood" bill in Virginia's General Assembly could spark debate that may leak over to the Presidential campaign. (WTOP)
Was Virginia not paying attention when Mississippi went through this? It is no surprise that Bob Marshall (R) has introduced this bill. If it is related to the erosion of women's rights or the destruction of logic, Bob Marshall is usually behind the effort, but just because the bill might survive a legal challenge, this does not make it any more sensible, logical or necessary. And, in fact, it could result in more harm, to the living, to those it is meant to protect and to those not yet thought of than it will bring benefits. The delegates in Richmond have a number of much more important issues to be discussing over the next 60 days than grandstanding. If Marshall would focus more on the damage that sitting in hours of gridlock than on the trivialities that he focuses on, he would find a lot more people supporting him, than treating him with the derision he deserves.
