Virginia Christian Alliance leaders meet with Governor Bob McDonnell’s Secretary & Senior Public Policy Advisor, Jasen Eige, and several staff members.  Representing the Virginia Christian Alliance was Bishop Gerald O. Glenn, National Chairman for Care Net Life Ambassadors, Chesterfield; Mrs. Rita Dunaway, JD, Legal Counsel for the Rutherford Institute, Charlottesville; Mrs. Louantha Kerr, 40 Days for Life, Portsmouth, VA; Dr. John W. Seeds, MD, Sr. Assoc. Dean of Professional Education Programs and Professor of Obstetrics & Gynecology and Radiation, VCU Medical Center, Richmond; Mrs. Terry T. Beatley, Chairman, No Excuse Ministry, Fredericksburg; Mrs. Diana DeBoe, Virginia Coalition for Life, Virginia Beach;  Dean Welty, Director of the Valley Family Forum, Harrisonburg; and Don Blake, Chairman, Virginia Christian Alliance, Henrico, VA.

The hour and half meeting was to make known to the Governor, and his staff, the positions of the collective groups represented, and those of others around the Commonwealth who could not attend the meeting.  The Virginia Christian Alliance, and the other Pro-Life, Pro-Family groups are all in unanimous agreement, and strongly support House Bill 1 and all the other Pro-Life, Pro-Family legislation on the General Assembly’s agenda.

Governor Bob McDonnell was strongly urged to make a public stand and to personally “push” the Pro-Life, Pro-Family legislation through both houses of the General Assembly.

About the Author

Virginia Christian Alliance
The mission of the VIRGINIA CHRISTIAN ALLIANCE is to promote moral, social and scientific issues we face today from a Biblical point of view. In addition we will refute and oppose, not with hate, but with facts and humor, the secular cultural abuses that have overridden laws and standards of conduct of the past. We will encourage Christians to participate in these efforts through conferences, development of position papers, booklets and tracts, radio/TV spots, newspaper ads and articles and letters-to-the editor, web sites, newsletters and providing speakers for church and civic meetings.
