A message from Virginia Society for Human Life President:
I know just how you feel today! It hurts! It makes us angry. It is profoundly bewildering. Still, it is the American way.
We gave our best efforts to persuade our fellow Virginians to vote pro-life in order to protect and save innocent babies lives and to protect all vulnerable innocent life from health care rationing and euthanasia under Obama Care!
There will be an official statement from VSHL soon today. Please use that statement with your chapter and local press, including blogs and Facebook connections.
Many of you braved rebuke and cold weather the last two months to help VSHL PAC try to get out the pro-life vote at locations, including churches and rallies across Virginia. Thank you for your willingness to get out the facts of “life”. I believe distributing those pro-life voter guides proved very importantly in influencing how close the final vote was in Virginia.
There is good new! We have saved all eight of our Virginia pro-life Congressmen! Wttman, Rigell, Forbes, Hurt, Goodlatte, Cantor, Griffith, and Wolf
Also, many counties around Virginia went for Romney/Ryan that have been traditionally Democrat, including most of southwestern Virginia! Kudos to our friends there who distributed thousands of NRLC comparison pieces all over that region.
VSHL PAC in worked closely with our County leaders and w/ National Right to Life to educate on radio and by telephone. Every action spread the facts and we reach more voters than ever bore.
A final thought!
If your Congressman was one of those that VSHL PAC endorsed and who won re-election, please send a note of congratulations to him As soon as possible! Our good men in Washington will need to know we have their backs! Theirs will be a tough fight ahead, particularly on pro-life matters in Congress!
Now we in Virginia at VSHL must stand up and get ready for the next go around! We must continue to lead for Life. Next up, the Virginia General Assembly starts in January.
So for this moment, hold your loved ones close and give thanks for what we all have, the gift of life!
God bless you all,
Olivia Gans Turner
