By Olivia Gans Turner, President, Virginia Society for Human Life (VSHL)
It was as extraordinary opportunity to be a part of this celebration day when the Virginia General Assembly voted to commend the 50 year anniversary of Virginia Society for Human Life’s founding. The lady in the chair at the center of the picture is Mrs. Geline B. Williams who along with her husband Alex organized the original VSHL chapter in order to prevent pro-abortion groups from changing Virginia’s pro-life laws in 1967. They were successful until Roe v. Wade was handed down by the Supreme Court.
Members of the General Assembly and officers past and present of VSHL recognized the 50 year anniversary of the founding of the Virginia Society for Human Life. Del. Jimmie Massey presented a copy of the resolution passed by the House during the 2017 session.
