hire someone of their own faith as an in-home tutor or caretaker and even be subjected to in-home visits from the Health Department to conduct an inspection of the premises. Read more about the dangers of these bills here. I voted NO, and spoke against this legislation on the floor (video here).
Another bill, HB 1932, passed on a party line vote. This bill would repeal conscience protections for faith-based adoption and foster care agencies. If this becomes law, the result will be disastrous for private faith-based agencies that want to help find homes for hundreds of children in foster care or who are waiting to be adopted. I voted NO.
House Bill 1896 will force Virginia taxpayers to fund elective abortions for around 1.5 million Virginians, and it even forces taxpayers to fund abortions, contraception, and sterilizations for non-citizens illegally present. I voted NO.
Government taking away our choice of who to hire in our own home, putting faith-based agencies out of business leaving at-risk kids without homes, and wasting our tax dollars paying for non-citizens’ abortions and medical procedures is outrageous.
House Democrats also passed a bill to protect convicted killers on death row from capital punishment, the most extreme measure in their ongoing push to move violent criminals out of jail and back on the streets. Their compassion did not rise to a level sufficient to even hear the bill I proposed in the 2021 Session to block live non-anesthetized babies from being dismembered in the womb. See HB 2241 Unborn child protection from dismemberment abortion; penalties.
