State of Virginia De-funds Planned Murder, Inc.

Dear pro-life friends,

Recently the state of Virginia voted to cut funding for Planned Murder, Inc. (a.k.a. Planned Parenthood).

A link to the article is here.

One of the interesting things about this story is that one of the senators who voted to cut funding is a Democrat, who stated, "I ran on a pro-life platform, and most of my constituents are pro-life."

Imagine that! An elected official actually abiding by his campaign promises! Actually ACTING pro-life, rather than just using pro-lifers to get elected, then forgetting about the issue once entering the belly of the beast! Hats off to Virginia State Senator Charles J. Colgan! I don't know his positions on other issues; but he is correct to oppose the murdering of children. In fact, I wrote him a note thanking him for voting in favor of life. If you would like to do the same, and I would encourage you to do so, here is a link to his contact information. Great to see someone who stands against his political party to cast a principled vote!

For the preborn,

James Niemela
