Virginia March for Life
Join us to stop pro-abortion extremism in Virginia!
April 3, 2019
New York may have just legalized abortion up until birth, but unfortunately, our home state of Virginia is not far behind. State Delegate Kathy Tran recently introduced legislation that would, similar to the new law in New York, allow abortion up until birth. Thankfully, the bill failed in committee, but we also learned that Governor Northam endorsed this extreme pro-abortion legislation; even going so far in a radio interview to suggest doctors could make a decision on whether to provide care for a baby that survived a botched abortion.
It’s critical that every pro-life Virginian make a stand for life at the Virginia March for Life.
