Just two months ago, Delegate Kathy Tran (D-VA-42) was asked in a legislative hearing if her bill HB 2491 would allow for abortion even when a woman is about to give birth and is showing signs of going into labor.
“My bill would allow that, yes.”

Will you join us at the first official Virginia March for Life to reject this type of abortion extremism in Virginia?
First ever official Virginia March for Life will take place in Richmond, VA on April 3rd, 2019
RICHMOND, VA – The March for Life, in partnership with The Family Foundation, Virginia Catholic Conference, and the Virginia Society for Human Life, are thrilled to announce speakers for the first ever official Virginia March for Life. Speakers will include Melissa Ohden, a survivor of a saline infusion abortion and Ryan Bomberger, founder of The Radiance Foundation. Melissa Ohden and Ryan Bomberger will join Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life, Victoria Cobb, President of The Family Foundation, Olivia Gans Turner, President of the Virginia Society for Human Life, and Felicia Pricenor, Associate Director of the Virginia Catholic Conference in addressing pro-life advocates who attend the Virginia March for Life in Richmond.
The Virginia March for Life, to be held on the “Veto” Day of the Virginia legislative session, comes after the controversy sparked by State Delegate Kathy Tran who introduced legislation that would, similar to the radical new law in New York, allow abortion up until birth, for any reason. Governor Northam endorsed this extreme pro-abortion legislation and even went so far as to suggest doctors could make a decision on whether to provide care for a baby that survived a botched abortion.
The March for Life urges every pro-life Virginian to take a stand for life at the Virginia March for Life on April 3. Learn more at VirginiaMarchforLife.org.

March for Life, Partnered with The Family Foundation, the Virginia Catholic Conference and the Virginia Society for Human Life, Announce Virginia March for Life
First ever official Virginia March for Life to take place in Richmond on April 3rd, 2019
RICHMOND, Va. – March for Life is excited to partner with The Family Foundation, Virginia Catholic Conference and the Virginia Society for Human Life to organize the first ever official Virginia March for Life on April 3rd, 2019 in Richmond, Virginia. Marchers will rally at the state capital to call for an end to pro-abortion extremism in the state.
“As a fellow Virginian I am delighted that we will partner with such strong pro-life, pro-family organizations to help plan and initiate the first Virginia March for Life. We will bring together and mobilize countless pro-life Virginians who are appalled by the past few weeks’ pro-abortion activity in their beloved state,” said Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life Defense and Education Fund. “Given such an extreme pro-abortion agenda, it is imperative for all of us to stand together for the rights of the unborn. Every human life should be valued and protected.”
The Virginia March for Life will start with a rally at 11am ET, followed by a march at 12pm ET. More details, including a list of speakers, to be announced soon.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, March for Life Education and Defense Fund announced their 2019 theme – “Unique from Day One: Pro-Life is Pro-Science.” Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life, joined by Dr. David Prentice, VP and Research Director at Charlotte Lozier Institute, David Daleiden, Founder and Project Lead with Center for Medical Progress, and Dr. Grazie Christie, Radiologist and Policy Advisor for The Catholic Association, discussed how the theme of the 46th annual March for Life embodies the current state of the pro-life movement.
“Science is behind the pro-life movement. We see that medical and technological advancements always affirm the pro-life movement, for example, DNA is present at fertilization and no fingerprint on earth, past, present, or future, is the same. We know, too, a baby’s heart beats at just six weeks and we can distinctly observe it ourselves with ultrasound technology,” said Jeanne Mancini. “As science progresses, we see clearly that every life is unique from day one in the womb.”
“Life in its most vulnerable form, should be protected,” continued Mancini. “To this end, we hope that Patients First Act, HR 2918, and similar legislation preserving the dignity of the human person from its earliest moments, will soon become law.”
March for Life is excited to announce that Ben Shapiro, Editor-in-Chief of The Daily Wire and host of “The Ben Shapiro Show”, as well as Abby Johnson, Founder of And Then There Were None, will be speaking at the 2019 March for Life. Sidewalk Prophets will provide the musical opening for the 2019 March for Life. They have a career spanning three major label studio releases, and are a Dove Award-winning band that has sold nearly 700,000 albums and 1.6 million digital downloads.
The 46th annual March for Life, the world’s largest annual human rights demonstration, will be held on January 18, 2019. With exactly 3 months until then, we will be sharing more and more about the theme and the incredible science that supports the pro-life cause.
The 2019 March for Life is a little over three months away!
Take a moment to RSVP for the world’s largest pro-life gathering on Friday, January 18, 2019!
When you add your name, you’ll be among the first to hear our big announcement on Thursday – the 2019 March for Life theme!
After you RSVP, you will receive a text on Thursday morning, in advance of our press event announcing the theme. Every year we put much discernment into selecting a theme that addresses a pressing pro-life issue, and we think you’ll be really excited to learn more about the 2019 theme!
It was an honor to attend the swearing-in ceremony at the White House on Monday evening for our newest Supreme Court Justice, Brett Kavanaugh.
As you know, the Supreme Court plays a critical role in pro-life policy and has for decades. The horrific Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton cases in 1973 are the very reason the March for Life first began on January 22, 1974.
For 45 years, we have been marching with the mission to end abortion by uniting, educating, and mobilizing pro-life people in the public square.
However, it’s so important to remember that the cause of life is bigger than the Supreme Court and elections.
That’s why our vision at the March for Life is a world where the beauty and dignity of every human life are valued and protected.
Ending abortion in America will take the effort of every single pro-life person. We can’t put our hope in just one politician, judge, or piece of legislation. Each of us must commit to making a difference for the pro-life cause.
And it all starts at the March for Life.
The March for Life has grown to the largest human rights demonstration in the world – and we need YOU there on January 18, 2019 to be a voice for life.
“Today the United States Supreme Court has gained an exceptional Justice in Brett Kavanaugh. March for Life is grateful to Justice Kavanaugh and his family for persevering through this most difficult confirmation process. We are also grateful to President Trump for delivering on his campaign promise to nominate a fair and independent judge who faithfully adheres to the Constitution. The Supreme Court plays a critical role in pro-life policy and has for decades. We look forward to Justice Kavanaugh’s tenure on the bench and the impact his dedicated public service will have towards creating a country where every human life is valued and protected equally under the law.”
“Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion business. As the first doctor at the helm in nearly 50 years, new Planned Parenthood president Dr. Leana Wen has an opportunity to finally make women’s health top priority, and close shop on an abortion business that claimed the lives of 321,384 babies while only providing 7,762 prenatal services just last year. More than six in ten Americans oppose taxpayer funding for abortion giants like Planned Parenthood, and Dr. Wen would be wise to heed the will of an increasingly pro-life culture by ushering in a new era of women’s healthcare that focuses on saving life – not ending it.”
– March for Life President Jeanne Mancini
