Virginia News Stand: March 31, 2009

The last day of March brings us great news, literally: The governor signed the Choose Life license plate bill and its all over the news, with the Planned Parenthood types all in a snit. Interestingly, they're steamed at Governor Tim Kaine, so much so that he was compelled to say if they want their own plate, they can have it. Exactly! As the author of the Choose Life amendment, Senator Ken Cuccinelli (R-37, Fairfax), has said, "If pro-abortion groups want a 'Choose Death' plate, fine." So the first five articles today are about "Choose Life" and The Family Foundation is featured in four of them (see articles with *). In other news, the RPV chairman saga drags on, while Delegate Joe Morrissey (D-74, Henrico) has found a unique way to raise campaign cash.
