Prior to the Reconvene Session of the 2017 Virginia General Assembly on Wednesday, a House Joint Resolution, HR1025, patroned by Delegate Jimmie Massie, R-72, was presented to the representatives of the Virginia Society for Human Life
The resolution commends the Virginia Society for Human Life for its 50 years of service to protect innocent human life from conception to natural death.
VSHL was founded by concerned Virginians in 1967 to preserve the Commonwealth’s strong pro-life laws from attack by pro-abortion forces in order to protect unborn children from the violence of abortion.
Among the pro-life efforts that have become law since the founding of VSHL are the Parental Notification, Parental Consent, Partial Birth/Infanticide ban, Physician Assisted Suicide ban, and Virginia Women’s Right to Know Law.
VSHL commends those members of the Virginia General Assembly who have over the past fifty years sponsored and supported its efforts to defend innocent human life.
Virginia Society for Human Life is the first statewide pro-life organization in the country and the Virginia affiliate of National Right to Life Committee.
