Following Congressman Mollohan’s steering of H.R. 2487 – a key appropriations markup measure with pro-life riders – I seized the opportunity to thank Congressman Mollohan for his willingness to stand for life. My letter to the Congressman is below:

The Hon. Alan B. Mollohan
U.S. House of Representatives
2302 Rayburn House Building
Washington, D.C. 20515

Rep. Mollohan:

On behalf of the Family Policy Council of West Virginia, its Board of Directors, and the thousands of West Virginians we represent, I am writing to express our collective thanks for your leadership on H.R. 2487, the FY10 Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriations bill.

Specifically, I write to thank you for upholding limitations on funding on abortions for federal prisoners, the patenting of human organisms, and law firms engaged in abortion litigation. It is my understanding that your support of these measures represented a departure from the position maintained by the White House and even some in leadership within the United States Congress and your own party. I thank you for standing for life – regardless of which directions the winds of politics may blow.

No one should be allowed to decide that an innocent life is worthless. Every innocent life is deserving of protection. Yet, a person’s potential only matters if they are given the opportunity to reach it. Your actions this week in leadership of your subcommittee have helped secure that opportunity.

Going forward, I trust you will provide like support for other necessary measures, like the Hyde, Helms, and Dornan Amendments, that curtail the investment of taxpayer dollars in abortive services. Should we be able to assist you in anyway,please do not hesitate to contact me directly.


Jeremiah G. Dys, Esq.,
