Herring Condemns Senator Dick Black's Comments Comparing Roe v. Wade to the Holocaust

Richmond, VA - Democratic Party of Virginia Chair Charniele Herring released the following statement condemning Senator Dick Black's comments yesterday on the floor of the Senate comparing the Roe v. Wade to the Holocaust:

"Senator Dick Black's comments are outrageous and offensive to those who perished in one of the darkest periods of human history. Comparing such a tragedy to women exercising their constitutionally protected rights is appalling. This falls far short of the standard of conduct Virginians expect when they send legislators to Richmond to represent them.

"Continued attacks on women's health and a focus on a divisive social agenda don't create jobs, they don't improve schools, and they will not solve our transportation crisis. All they do is distract our focus from the serious work ahead and cause further harm to the reputation of the Commonwealth."

"I call on Senator Dick Black to apologize for his remarks, and I ask that Republican leaders like Governor Bob McDonnell and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli condemn them forcefully."
