Bishop Burbidge responds to Governor Northam’s extreme abortion comments

Virginia Catholic Conference Since the beginning of the Virginia General Assembly session on January 9, we have witnessed the introduction of extreme abortion legislation culminating in an attempt to pass a law similar to what New York recently passed. This bill rightfully failed—but I am, along with so many people of good will, distraught that this bill was introduced in the first place. It could have paved the way for babies to suffer a violent and gruesome death moments before birth and could have been harmful to women. Read More

"Virginia is at a tipping point, and it's frightening to think where this might go if we don't give it all that we can," said march organizer Elliott Harding as pro-life Virginians are planning to convene at the Capitol in just over one week.

In the days since Virginia’s highly-controversial late-term abortion bill became publicly known, there have been extraordinary reactions from pro-life lawmakers and citizens alike, not just from those across the Commonwealth, but the nation at-large. Read More


Virginia Attempts to Follow New York on Abortion at 9 Months

Virginia Attempts to Follow New York on Abortion at 9 Months

As the Republican Standard reported, Virginia could soon be joining New York in repealing restrictions on abortion, including terminations up until the moment of birth, under the provisions of a bill backed by Governor Ralph Northam and a substantial number of Democratic lawmakers.

This has caused fury on international news outlets, but the Virginia news outlets have been more than lame and have failed to fully report the pro-life side of this critical issue very close to the hearts of Virginians.  Shame on them!

Ed Vitagliano, Tim Wildmon, and Abraham Hamilton, III discuss Virginia's attempt to follow suit with New York concerning aborting full-term babies. Watch the informative and impassioned discussion below. Read More

E R A is NOT Dead

 

Please contact your Republican state delegates ASAP and forward/email to your friends to help spread the word.  We must remain active and alert to offset the pro-ERA efforts

Bob Marshall

Despite the misleading claims of the media, the ERA is NOT dead in Virginia!

One of the four ERA ratification proposals was rejected 12-10 by the Privileges & Elections Committee last Friday but three other ratification resolutions are still alive and pro-ERA forces are working tirelessly.

We cannot relent.

The two remaining House of Delegates ERA measures would have to pass the P & E Committee before February 5th (Crossover) but the Senate ERA measure is alive until adjournment Feb. 23rd. Read More


Third Trimester Abortion Bill Would Allow Terminations Until Birth in Virginia

Third Trimester Abortion Bill Would Allow Terminations Until Birth in Virginia

Tran confirmed her bill would allow third trimester abortions, up until the moment of birth, during a committee hearing on legislation which Republican lawmakers have compared to the recently-enacted late term abortion bill in New York. The bill would also substantially loosen the standard under which late term abortions are allowed.

...would allow abortion doctors to self-certify the necessity of late term procedures, eliminate informed consent requirements, repeal abortion clinic health and safety standards, permit late term abortions to be performed in outpatient clinics, remove ultrasound requirements, and eliminate Virginia’s 24 hour waiting period...

Virginia on the Brink: Pro-life, pro-family activists sound alarm on ‘anti-woman’ Equal Rights Amendment

ERA would destroy legal protections for women

“Male and female prisons will likely become integrated, resulting in dangerous conditions and harsher discipline for women since they would be required to be treated in the same way as men.”

The Equal Rights Amendment is a Trojan horse for taxpayer-funded abortion, sneaking it into the Constitution, and would enshrine an unlimited right to abortion.

CURRENT STATUS OF SJ 284
VIRGINIA, January 14, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Pro-abortion activists are pushing the Virginia legislature to ratify the decades-old Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), the national constitutional amendment conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly famously stopped. And pro-life and pro-family leaders are sounding the alarm over the push. “Virginia is what the proponents of the ERA are claiming [is] the 38th state, which would be the final state needed to ratify in their minds,” Victoria Cobb, president of the Family Foundation of Virginia, told LifeSiteNews.
