Dear pro-life friends,

It is time to welcome spring-time and celebrate the renewal of life at Easter.  West Virginians for Life has the opportunity to celebrate many exciting new developments.  Thanks to the dedication and hard work of Jaycen Saab, West Virginians for Life now has a new and improved website.  We are deeply grateful to Jaycen for volunteering so much of his time to provide West Virginia pro-lifers with a wonderful new tool for education and communication.  How do you like our newly renovated website?

We have also had our second Tele-Townhall meeting — this time discussing Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the country, performing more than 25% of all abortions.  If you missed it, listen to the recorded version by visiting our current news page at  Dr. Angela Franks (author of Margaret Sanger’s Eugenic Legacy) discussed the eugenic philosophy behind Planned Parenthood’s abortion policies.  Dr. Randall O’Bannon, Education Director at National Right to Life, discussed the business model of Planned Parenthood and what they are doing to make themselves the “Wal-Mart of the abortion business.”

I pointed out that Planned Parenthood is receiving $1 million every day from the federal government in your tax dollars.  Congress tried to cut off funds to Planned Parenthood and all our Representatives voted yes to cutting off funding.  Both of our Senators, Joe Manchin and Jay Rockefeller voted no, and they should hear from pro-life citizens who are outraged about their vote.

I’d like to remind you to mark your calendars for the next West Virginians for Life Rose dinner, which will be held at Lakeview Country Club on Thursday, November 15.  Our keynote speaker will be Morgantown native, Dr. Robert George, distinguished professor of jurisprudence and director of the James Madison program at Princeton University.

We wish you and your family a happy and joyful Easter season.

Sincerely, for life,

Wanda Franz, Ph.D., President
