Letter to the Editor

Open Letter

Dear Christian Friends of West Virginia;

The news about the State of New York passing the late term abortion law has many of us upset and wondering if it could happen in West Virginia.

We have good news for you.

West Virginians for Life (WVFL) has been in existence since 1975 in response to the passage of Roe vs. Wade, and they have been fighting for the rights of the unborn in the West Virginia State Legislature every year.

There have been many bills passed because of their efforts in Charleston, the latest victory being the passage of Amendment 1 which did away with taxpayer funded abortions. Visit their website for information on other legislation they have been successful in getting passed: www.wvforlife.org

Aren’t you glad they have been protecting the rights of the unborn in West Virginia?

The website states: “West Virginians for Life is a non-profit, public-service organization.

WVFL is a statewide network of county chapters and the voice for the unborn in West Virginia. Our goal is the preservation of human life from conception to natural death. Our primary purpose is to educate through presentation of detailed and factual information about fetal development, abortion, alternatives to abortion, infanticide, euthanasia and related issues. WVFL works with state policymakers and legislators to promote pro-life policies and law.”

We encourage you to attend the county chapter meetings or if there is not a chapter in your county to consider starting a group. Together we can educate the public about abortion and euthanasia.

If you would like to know more about chapter meetings, contact Mary Ann at 304-594-9845.

The Pocahontas Chapter meets the fourth Monday of each month near Arbovale. There are currently no active chapters in Webster, Pendleton or Barbour counties, so please consider starting or reviving a group in your county.

WVFL can be reached at 25 Canyon Road, Morgantown, WV 26508.

Judith Fuller, Durbin
