In Virginia, a Democrat wins, but women lose

Tim Kaine and abortion

You know, I feel my reproductive rights are safer with Tim Kaine in the Governor's Mansion than Jerry Kilgore. Mostly because Kaine does not have a rabid, anti-abortion base that he has to throw red meat to keep it quiet. Tim Kaine has pledged to veto any new legislation that would outlaw abortion. Jerry Kilgore was not willing to take that pledge as was illustrated when Tim Russert put him into a "gotcha" situation in one of the debates.

That's good to know

As I said, he beats the alternative. But there's a lot that can be done between defending reproductive rights vigorously and all-out criminalization of abortion. I hope he doesn't tread there, either.
