Day 2 – January 21, 2013 – Senator Mark Obenshain
Thank you for taking 5 minutes out of your day to use your voice on behalf of those who have none. My general plan here is to make it quick and easy for you to contact Virginia Senators who are in key positions to pass measures recognizing the sanctity of human life (or, in some cases, to obstruct such measures for political reasons).
On some days, I may have other information or commentary to post as well, but I’ll keep the feature Senator and e-mail content/link near the top of each day’s post so that if you don’t have the extra time to read, you can send your e-mail, pray, and be finished. One more note: PLEASE always feel free to send your own, personal note rather than copying and pasting the one I have composed. The important thing is that these Senators know where you stand on this issue.
Here we go:
Senator Obenshain represents Harrisonburg, Page County, Rappahannock County, Rockingham County, Shenandoah County and Warren County. He has been an outspoken advocate for protection of the unborn, and we need to encourage him to continue to champion this cause even as he seeks to be elected as Attorney General. Conventional wisdom holds that politicians seeking higher office tend to play it safe, avoiding like the plague any highly controversial issues. But our goal here is to encourage these legislators to be true statesmen: pursuing what is just and right above their personal political ambitions.

Dear Senator Obenshain,
Thank you for the many times when you have taken a public stand for the protection of the unborn. Please continue to fight to restore the sanctity of human life in our Commonwealth. It is important to me and my family that the laws of Virginia recognize that human life begins at conception, and that every human being—from conception until natural death—has basic human rights. I am praying specifically for you today, that God would give you great courage to work toward this end. Thank you.

Please pray for Senator Obenshain.
