    Unpublished research by university scientists is exempt from the Virginia Freedom of Information Act, the Virginia Supreme Court ruled Thursday, rejecting an attempt by skeptics of global warming to view the work of a prominent climate researcher during his years at the University of Virginia. The ruling is the latest turn in the FOIA request filed in 2011 by Del. Robert Marshall (R-Prince William) and the American Tradition Institute to obtain research and e-mails of former U-Va. professor Michael Mann.

    As Congress debates a final comprehensive health care bill for the nation, one Virginia delegate is proposing that state residents, and possibly others nationwide, not be held to any coverage mandates. Delegate Robert G. Marshall (R-13th District) has filed the “Virginia Health Care Freedom Act” (HB 10), which would “protect an individual’s right and power to participate or decline to participate in a health care system or plan,” according to a summary of the bill. “Mobsters used to offer ‘protection’ to business owners, so when Congress says that if individuals don’t become customers of businesses that contribute to them, to...

    Virginia lawmakers' affirmation that marriage is only for one man and one woman has prompted homosexual activists to call for a boycott of the state's companies and tourism. One group, Virginiaisforhaters.org, derives its name from the state's tourism motto, "Virginia is for lovers." The site was started by Jay Porter and his partner David Smith who live in Seattle, reports 365Gay.com. Porter says one company to boycott is clothier J.Crew, which markets across the country but has a customer service and distribution center in Lynchburg, Va. Another group, Make Love Legal, is targeting the state's 400th anniversary celebration in 2007...

  • Virginia's Latest Threat to Reproductive Rights

    Yes Virginia, at least for the moment, you have access to contraception. Virginia State Delegate Robert Marshall (R-13th) has ignited a firestorm on college campuses in the Old Dominion by advocating that the dispensing of emergency contraception, a.k.a. morning after pills, violated Virginia's 24-hour waiting period for abortion services. Thankfully, the Virginia Attorney General's Office intervened with a letter advising that Marshall's opinion was not based in law, but this dispute yet again identifies that leading opponents of reproductive rights seek not only to regulate abortions, but to also prevent access to contraception. This year, Marshall's crusade against reproductive rights...

    Warner applauds Senior Center Makes remarks on pill debate during visit to Charlottesville By Bob Gibson / Daily Progress staff writer May 14, 2003 Gov. Mark R. Warner said Tuesday that he rejects a Northern Virginia GOP lawmaker’s efforts to redefine "morning after" birth control pills as abortion agents and to have the pills banned from university student health centers. "I agree with the attorney general’s office," said Warner, speaking in Charlottesville. He was referring to a Friday afternoon memorandum to colleges by Attorney General Jerry W. Kilgore’s office that found the state’s universities are not violating Virginia’s informed...

    HARRISONBURG, Va. -- In response to a complaint from a state legislator, James Madison University will stop providing "morning after" birth-control pills at its campus health center. The state-supported college's board of visitors voted Friday to stop dispensing the emergency contraception pill after receiving a letter from Del. Robert Marshall, R-Manassas, criticizing the practice.
