On Tuesday, Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob McDonnell appeared on the Laura Ingraham Radio Show and, to the delight of many pro-lifers, took a definitive stand on banning taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood. For many, such as Virginians For Life, such a public stand from McDonnell was essential and urged him for some time to make a public pledge. Remember, he has not signed a no-tax pledge. To others, his commitment to the pro-life cause was never in doubt. But Ingraham brought up the issue and McDonnell responded by saying banning state funds to Planned Parenthood is something he's been for since the beginning. Here's the interview. It lasts 7:19 and the Planned Parenthood question is at about the 3:40 mark.
