Virginia General Assembly - #2619 - Senate Kills Life Bills, Passes Threats to Families - Family Foundation (2) Soros' Media Matters Teams with Planned Parenthood to Rebuff Undercover Videos - The Blaze (3) Chris Christie Vetos Funding Planned Parenthood - National Review Online

A3273/S2393 would have forced taxpayers to support the activities and expansion of an organization that was caught on tape aiding and abetting in the sex trafficking and abortions of minors as young as 14. In vetoing this bill, Governor Christie has ensured that NJ taxpayers will not be complicit in the sexual abuse and exploitation of poor women and minors under the pretense of ‘women’s health.’”  Read more.......
