Who is a pro-life leader?
That depends on how you define a leader.
For VFL – Virginias only No-More-Excuses Pro-Life lobby we define a leader as a politician who does two things:
1. Sponsor the right bill
2.Use the rules to force a vote when the party bosses threaten them.
We will never end baby killing if we don’t get recorded votes to hold the politicians who say they are pro-life accountable.
There is only one Virginia politician who has been a leader for the babies.
No it is not Ken Cuccinelli or Mark Obenshain.
They have done good things but have not been leaders.
The only leader for the babies in Virginia is Delegate Bob Marshall.
Bob Marshall has courageously stood up to party boss Speaker Bill Howell to force recorded votes.
In fact, he sponsored the 2007 Life at Conception Act and used the rules to force a vote.
Speaker Howell was so furious with Marshall that he took away a Chairmanship from Marshall for refusing to play party boss ball.
Even though Marshall lost the vote – put in vote number and link – it put so-called pro-life Delegate Dave Nutter on the record.
Delegate Nutter sponsored the bill with Marshall and then stabbed the babies in the back by voting no.
It cost Nutter his seat as outraged pro-life Virginians remembered Nutter’s betrayal in 2011 when Nutter ran for Senate.
Now that you know how we at VFL define a pro-life leader let me give the grades for the upcoming state-wide races.
At VFL we only give the coveted A+ to proven leaders.
