Today State Senator Mark Herring (Loudoun & Fairfax) called on his opponents, Senator Mark Obenshain and Delegate Rob Bell, to condemn the comments made by president of the Susan B. Anthony List Marjorie Dannenfelser and Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli comparing abortion to slavery.
“Both Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and the Susan B. Anthony List have made their positions clear on women’s health care, and both are well out of the mainstream. Their outrageous comments comparing abortion to slavery are hurtful, insensitive and wrong,” Herring said.
“While Ken Cuccinelli has refused to apologize or back down from these comments, the two candidates vying to replace him have remained silent. I call on them to join me in condemning these outlandish and offensive comparisons and telling Virginians that these statements are wrong and will not be tolerated.”
