‘Commonwealth For Life’ March Organized In Wake Of Governor’s Endorsement Of Late-Term Abortion Bill

“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.

The bill spurred Speaker of the House of Delegates Kirk Cox (R-Colonial Heights) to give a rare and emotional speech on the floor of the lower chamber last night. He said, “I will never stop fighting for the promise of life as long as I hold a gavel, as long as I can speak into this microphone, as long as I have the privilege of this floor. I promise to fight for the promise of life.”

While lawmakers on Bank Street in Richmond have been responding to the shocking development, citizens across the Commonwealth are preparing to march on the Capitol to show their support for the unborn.

On February 7, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., pro-life activists will convene at 1000 Bank Street on the lawn at the Capitol building in the “Commonwealth for Life: March on Richmond.”

TRS reached out to march organizer Elliott Harding to understand more about the event, which, according to its Facebook page, has over 1,200 interested and over 200 signed up to appear, after being started less than 24 hours ago.

“This week, Del. Kathy Tran and Gov. Northam exposed just how extreme today’s Left has become when it comes to destroying innocent life. The idea of killing a child during delivery or afterwards is where humanity needs to draw the line,” Harding said in a statement. “We have a duty to stand up for those who can’t defend themselves, and that includes the smallest and youngest among us.”

“Virginia’s General Assembly & the Governor will hear that message on Thursday, Feb. 7th as we host a Commonwealth for Life: March on Richmond, where I believe hundreds of Virginians will turn out and mobilize in this call to action,” he added.

TRS also asked Harding what the march seeks to accomplish.

“It’s my hope that this march will inspire men and women throughout Virginia to demand more from their leaders on this issue and ultimately replace those leaders in 2019 if need be. 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.”
