HB462 Is Not Going Away…

Babies: Offensive To Democrats, a Hate Crime, and A Threat To Civilization

Bearing Drift feels so strongly about this common sense sonogram bill — we’re holding some feet to the fire.

Tired of “conservative” Republicans promising common sense legislation only to gun them down on the floor once the liberals start whining and complaining about “dragging us back to the 1950’s” and other nonsense?

Of course, we were told things would change with a Republican-led Senate.

Are they lying to us?

HB 462 would allow a woman to see a sonogram of her baby before she was pushed into the decision of having an abortion — or keeping her child.

Bearing Drift and our 40,000 readers a month consist of the movers and shakers, activists, and donors for the conservative movement in Virginia.  

They want to know.  What’s changed with the Virginia Senate?

HB 462 is our first true test.  No exucses, no compromise.  And we’ll be watching.

[Ed. Note: SB 484, a duplicate bill to HB 462, passed the Senate and is now being debated on the House floor – with likely passage considering HB 462 easily passed. So, the below chart is updated based on the votes taken in the Senate on Senator Jill Vogel’s SB 484]
