Virginia Personhood Bill Endangers IVF Fertility Treatments
Get ready to cry. This is far and away the most powerful and emotional press conference I have ever attended, let alone recorded. This press conference is about the unintended consequences of so-called "personhood" bills that would convey the rights of ordinary citizens on unimplanted fertilized eggs. Virginia's personhood bill, HB1 (authored by "Taliban" Bob Marshall), threatens a wide variety of existing rights. Bob Marshall refuses to acknowledge the wide ranging effects of his proposed bill.
This is an incredibly emotional video, so be warned: you will probably find yourself crying, or at least choked up, if you watch it all the way to the end. If you are a conservative who supports HB1, then I dare you to watch this video all the way to the end.
