A Resolution in Honor of the Right to Life

Whereas, “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” are the first enumerated rights in the Declaration of Independence;

Whereas the State of New York pass and the Governor of New York signed a late term abortion bill allowing abortions up to and including the 3rd trimester;

Whereas the Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, Dr. Ralph Northam (D), has voiced his intent to pass a similar bill in the Virginia General Assembly should the Democrats gain control;

Whereas this legislation would brutally and unfairly deprive persons of their lives before they have a chance to take their first breaths outside the womb;

Whereas the majority of the Commonwealth of Virginia has a deep rooted foundation in moral and ethical beliefs, including the right to life, parental rights, and strong families as the bedrock for a healthy society; and

Whereas the Rockingham County Republican Committee classifies this policy proposal for what it really is: infanticide, and the Committee rejects this blatant attack on human life that allows easy access to abortions up until the point of birth, or beyond; and

Whereas the Rockingham County Republican Committee joins our Virginia Republican Congressional Delegation in denouncing this legislation that shocks the moral fiber of the Nation; now, therefore, be it

Resolved, that the Rockingham County Republican Committee hereby condemns any effort by the Governor of Virginia, the House of Delegates, or the Virginia State Senate to pass such law; and, be it further

Resolved, that Rockingham County Republican Committee expects and insists that all elected Republican officials in the Sixth Congressional District, whether local, state, or federal to signal their opposition to the intent to prevent this policy from becoming law; and, be it further

Resolved, that the Rockingham County Republican Committee stands by and supports all of our Republican legislators who support the right to life; and therefore, be it further

Resolved, that the Rockingham County Republican Committee call to action all supporters of the right to life to co-sponsor this Resolution and soundly condemn any form of infanticide.
