Announcing the Fourth Annual Virginia March for Life
It’s time to mark your calendars for the fourth annual Virginia March for Life!
We are excited to announce that we are once again partnering with the Family Foundation of Virginia to organize the fourth annual Virginia March for Life on Wednesday, April 27th 2022, in Richmond, VA. We hope you will join us at the state capitol as we rally together to build a culture of life in Virginia, particularly at this pivotal time in history as Roe v. Wade hangs in the balance.
With a new, pro-life administration in power, your voice is all the more critical in encouraging our elected officials to be courageous in enacting life-protective policies for babies and mothers. They are beginning such work! In January, newly elected Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares reversed the Commonwealth’s position on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a crucial abortion case soon to be decided by the Supreme Court. Under former Governor Northam, Virginia shockingly opposed Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act limiting abortions after 15-weeks; however, Attorney General Miyares has reversed course arguing that each state should have the right to enact life-affirming laws.
“Pro-life Virginians sent a clear message in November that the days of the abortion industry dominating Richmond are over,” said Victoria Cobb, President of the Family Foundation in Virginia. “But the fight is never over. Our elected officials need to be reminded every day that unborn children in Virginia deserve protection until the day that abortion is not just illegal, its unthinkable.”
