March for Life Statement on Virginia 2020 Election Results

 

“The election results in Virginia are disappointing for those who value life. Earlier this year, Governor Northam and Delegate Tran made it clear where they would like to see Virginia in terms of abortion policy, that is allowing abortion up until birth and, as Northam explained, maybe even after birth.

With 2020 around the corner, it’s an opportunity for the pro-life community to again come together to reject abortion extremism during the legislative session.”
