Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, chairman of the GOP Platform Committee, praised the platform’s commitment to traditional marriage and opposition to abortion.

“This platform affirms the traditional meaning of marriage and the sanctity of innocent human life,” he said, urging its adoption on Tuesday.

The platform, which calls for an abortion ban and leaves out any exemptions for rape or incest, has drawn a lot of attention over the past week.
