Yes Virginia, the 19th Amendment involves the 1st One...

The desire of many Virginia Republicans to treat some women like the popsicles of the damned has run into a major problem...the public.
Of those polled, 55 percent say they oppose the requirement and 36 percent support it ... those surveyed oppose defining life beginning at conception 52-41 percent ...
Looks like they managed to poll more people than Rick Santorum or the Diocese of Richmond. Or for that matter, still for some reason, employed by CNN Dana Loesch:
“Oh what about the Virginia rape? The rapes that, the forced rapes of women who are pregnant?” What? Wait a minute, they had no problem having similar to a trans-vaginal procedure when they engaged in the act that resulted in their pregnancy.
If that is similar to sex, Ms. Loesch, to say the very least, you are doing it wrong. Virginia is apparently for the very worst of lovers.

Still for the moment, the fact that most of the public seems to have become aware as to what the Virginia GOP has done has led to this:
With hundreds protesting outside the Capitol, the House of Delegates delayed multiple contentious bills that appeared poised for final passage today.
Aw, and it was supposed to be such right-wing trifecta of a day:
The chamber pushed back votes on a measure that would require an ultrasound of all women considering an abortion as well as adoption- (ED: targeting gays to prevent such adoptions) and gun-related legislation.

Breitbart must have pics of Ted Turner doing some really vile things.

Any word on the rumor that a VA legislator (R-Sadistville) has introduced an amendment that all such probes be refrigerated until use?

I'm not sure if it's a proper rumor but I think that it would be irresponsible not to speculate that there is one.
