During my most recent adventure in retail, when one particular customer came into the store he regularly thanked me for my efforts on behalf of the pro-life community. Although I’m uncertain how he knew of my work in Tennessee, I did appreciate his support. Toward that end, he offered to donate to my political campaign should I ever seek office…but that is an issue for another day. Now I know that while many of you aren’t as politically active as I, you are as intensely as pro-life. Well, I’m pleased to announce that you can take a stand to help prevent the wholesale slaughter of the next generation. On Friday, I received word from our friends in Botetourt that you can help in this noble cause. The message is as follows:
According to our Attorney General, the state of VA could enforce
higher standards on abortion clinics in Virginia. Planned Parenthood
says if these standards were enforced, 17 of their 21 abortion clinics
in the state could close. The Governor has not done this yet.
Can you help me encourage the Governor to do the right thing? We want
Gov. Bob McDonnell to instruct the state Board of Health to enforce
the regulations on abortion clinics that the Attorney General says is
within the Governor’s power to do.
You can read the Attorney General’s opinion at:
1. Contact your GOP Delegates and state senators ask them to tell the
Governor to take a stand on this by instructing the state Board of
Health to enforce the regulations on abortion clinics. You can find
and contact your state reps at:
2. Contact the Governor: http://www.governor.virginia.gov/Contact.cfm
3. Write letters to the editor of you local paper & call in to radio talk shows
5. Ask others to do steps 1-4 – forward them this email.
Remember tell them you want Gov. Bob McDonnell to instruct the state
Board of Health to enforce the regulations on abortion clinics.
Thank you for taking the time to speak up for those who can not make
their voices heard.
Even though we’d like to eliminate all abortion facilities in the Old Dominion, this effort is a key step in the right direction. Regardless if your Delegate or State Senator is a passionate advocate for the unborn or not, we must contact them about this matter. Unfortunately, as you may have noticed, most politicians will only act when spurred by their constituents. So here is your chance to join me as we work to shut down many of the so-called “clinics” in our Commonwealth. Although one person can make a difference, an entire army of motivated citizens is worth far more. You must call or write Governor McDonnell and your representatives in Richmond and tell your friends and family to do likewise. We can save the unborn, but only if you’re willing to help.
Update: I just sent an email to the Governor. What are you waiting for?
Further Update: An online petition is now available too.
