Virginia has rejected ObamaCare taxpayer funding of abortion. Yesterday, Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell in partnership with the Virginia state legislature passed an amendment banning insurers from accepting abortion funding in the new federal ObamaCare exchange being set up in the state. The pro-life Susan B. Anthony List is praising the move.

“Today is a victory for the majority of Virginia taxpayers who do not want their tax dollars paying for abortions,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “The SBA List is grateful for the leadership of Governor McDonnell in ensuring Virginia taxpayers are not forced to pay for abortions in the state’s health care exchange."
