The Democrats supporting Terry McAuliffe for Virginia’s governorship are resorting to one lie after another. They claim Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, Mr. McAuliffe’s Republican opponent, is going to eliminate birth control and that he is conducting a “war on women.” They are wrong on both accounts.

In fact, it is Mr. McAuliffe and the Democrats who are waging a war on women. Thousands of unborn females would die if Mr. McAuliffe were to be elected, and he is bragging about it. Every woman who gets an abortion kills an unborn child. You could easily estimate that half of them would be female. The illegal Roe v. Wade ruling that made the killing of unborn babies a simple “choice” is almost barbaric. Our Supreme Court and the Democratic Party say it is legal to kill any living human while he or she is still in the womb — but only if you want to. The choice is yours.
