Response from the office of Ken Cuccinelli:

This group is working off a couple basic factual inaccuracies. The correct information has been in the news media time and again, but they either don't pay attention to the news, or they have chosen to ignore the information:

1) The attorney general did not support the invasive ultrasound bill in the General Assembly last year.

2) If the group has a problem with Virginia's laws, they need to speak to their delegates and senators, because the attorney general does not make laws in Virginia; he merely enforces them.

As an example, with the new abortion clinic regulations, what this group fails to realize is that his duty as the state's top lawyer is to advise his clients (in this case, the Virginia Board of Health) what the law is -- regardless of whether he agrees with it or not -- and how to correctly follow it. That's what he did. He did not make the law that said that abortion clinics must meet hospital building standards, the General Assembly did. And when the board was considering the regulations, members of the General Assembly -- Del. Kathy Byron for one -- explained to the board that his advice was in line with the language of the law that they passed.

More nutcases to deal with in Charlottesville. Just when you think the town is full to capacity with them.

This is helpful, but I don't think the left-wingers are going to let facts like the ones in the Attorney General's statement get in the way of a temper tantrum/dog-and-pony show.

I noticed the cutesy little media liberals (like those one sees on The Today Show) endlessly use the cutesy little term for celebrities who are pregnant and showing: it is now called a "baby bump." Such cute use of alliteration. Well, gals, which is it: a baby bump or an organism bump? If that thing pushing the abdomen outward is a baby, may I refer to some of you as baby killers?
BTW, the Blue Moon is a great venue for this group. It is located in an area of town that superbly illustrates what liberal policies have done for the cities in the US.

1) the cooch knew it was unconstitutional

"First, Cuccinelli refused to certify the regulations adopted by the board in June, essentially directing the board to reverse its vote. When it appeared that the board might in fact base the final regulations on medical evidence and not on politics, Cuccinelli then levied a threat against board members, underscoring that they would be held personally liable for the costs of litigation should a lawsuit be filed, and announcing that the state would not defend the board's action.

The board's vote means that several clinics across the state will be threatened with closure in the near future unless they can undertake massive and medically-unjustified renovations just to stay open."

You make a pretty convincing pro-abortion point. How many kids have you adopted?
