Please join West Virginians for Life in traveling to Charleston on Monday, March 13, 2017 for the annual Pro-Life Rally Day at the Capitol Building. The day’s events last from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. and include special music and a Prayer Walk through the Capitol following the rally at noon. Let your legislators know you want them to support the Parent’s Right to Know Act.
The Parent’s Right to Know petition can be signed electronically by visiting our homepage and looking for the petition plea. It is also available in printable form at http: http://wvforlife.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Parents-Right-to-Know-Petition-Color-1.pdf
The Parent’s Right to Know Act will close loopholes in existing state law that allow abortionists to perform secret abortions on underage girls. These loopholes not only interfere with the rights of parents, they put girls in abusive situations at greater risk.
Under current state law, teens may not have their ears pierced or be given aspirin in schools without their parent’s consent. Yet, loopholes in the current parental involvement statute do not require abortionists to notify parents about their children’s pending abortions or law enforcement authorities about suspected sexual abuse. This allows sexual predators to cover up their crimes with secret abortions.
The Parent’s Right to Know Act would allow parents and appropriate law enforcement authorities to protect our children by requiring abortionists to notify parents of their minor child’s pending abortion and exposing sexual abuse.
Plan now to take the day off from work. This makes for an excellent field trip for students, too. Come in vans, carpools and buses. Whatever it takes to have the largest crowd EVER in the halls of the West Virginia legislature! Free beanies to the first 300 registered on site.
Call 304-594-9845 for more information. Here is a flyer.
