The pro-abortion left is beginning to reveal just how radical they really are.
In New York, sweeping legislation allowing unborn babies to be killed up to seconds before birth passed to thunderous applause.
And now, a Virginia state legislator was caught on video trying to defend the same legislation in Virginia.
Just a week later, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam went even further with shocking statements suggesting his support for literal infanticide.
Now dozens of pro-life organizations have joined together to march on Richmond this Thursday in protest.
Here are all the details:
The “Commonwealth for Life: March on Richmond” has gone viral over the past few days, being shared by pro-life activists all over the state.
The march will be held at 1000 Bank Street, Richmond VA from 10am-1pm.
Already, dozens of pro-life organizations have joined as sponsors of the event, including the Virginia First Foundation, Eagle Forum, Concerned Women of America, Hosea Initiative, Virginia Christian Alliance, Frederick Douglas Leadership Institute, Day of Tears, Virginia Society for Human Life, Virginia Family Forum, and The Family Foundation.
