Your View Congratulations to Virginia Del. Bob Marshall. The U. S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit has upheld Virginia’s long-needed ban on partial birth infanticide, a grisly, barbaric practice in which a living human baby is killed in the process of being born, or left to die after being born.
The Virginia law authored by Delegate Marshall, HB 1541, first passed in 2003 and had been blocked by lower courts since then. Thanks are also due to Bob McDonnell, Virginia’s Attorney General, for his long defense of this law and for his skilled advocacy. We look forward to his equally skilled governorship of Virginia after the next election.
DAVID LUCAS, MANASSAS
