That's right. Boucher opposes parents' involvement in an under-age child's decision to abort their grandchild.
This is the same Rick Boucher who, once every two years, will fly down here to what's left of his district, make an appearance before a small crowd of the clueless, profess his deeply-held religious (Methodist) beliefs to his embarrassingly fawning constituency, relate to them in tones dripping in sentimentality and piety how God is exerting powerful influence over his life as well as over the decisions he makes, and then, as quickly as he appears, come election day, he will take a shower to cleanse himself of Southwest Virginia filth, return to his comfortable life back in Washington, and do everything he possibly can to increase the number of babies being slaughtered in Planned Parenthood abortion mills.
And he'll kick back the day he's reelected and smile as the Roanoke Times writes glowingly about his being the champion of ... well, they don't know exactly what he's ever championed, but he's their guy and that's really all that's important.
And the people who live here in Southwest Virginia will praise Rick Boucher for being one of us, a God-fearing man who fights to preserve all that which we hold dear.
You'd think that that would include the prevention of the slaughter of little babies. Or the encouragement of parental involvement in rearing children. But no.
Planned Parenthood strongly encourages teenagers to talk with their parents about sexual health decisions, including abortion, and research suggests most do. But in the real world, parental involvement is not always in the minor's best interest ...Yes. Everyone in Southwest Virginia should thank Rick Boucher for being there to prevent parents from counselling their children. He'll be (slummin' it) making another appearance in about 18 months. You can thank him then.
Maryland Representatives Chris Van Hollen, Albert Wynn, Elijah Cummings, Wayne Gilchrest, Ben Cardin and Dutch Ruppersberger and Virginia Representatives Jim Moran, Rick Boucher, and Robert Scott voted AGAINST this dangerous legislation. ... thank them for opposing legislation that does nothing to promote healthy communication between parents and their teens.
