General Assembly Blog Pause: Instead, A Look At Today's March For LifeJan 22, 2014
The pace of the Virginia General Assembly session is quickening. It's a grueling pace — full steam for 60 days, akin to the 400 meter sprint. It may be short, but it's an all out sprint with no chance to gasp for air. Still, today, annually, is a bittersweet day for us. We have to be in Richmond bringing all we have to bare on the General Assembly, while hundreds of thousands of loving, caring people from across the country made their voices heard for life in Washington, D.C. on the 41st anniversary of the deplorable Roe v. Wade decision. With that in mind, we taking a blogging break from the sausage making at Mr. Jefferson's Capitol, to commemorate the millions of lost lives in this country alone to the heinous crime against nature, abortion. We also salute our spiritual brothers and sisters who braved the frigid climate to march, hear speakers and energize the pro-life movement.
While many of us could not go to Washington because of work, family or the weather, we at least can bring you a taste of what went on today — a virtual March For Life. The Family Foundation urges you not only to view at least some of these great resources (and to read and view at still more sites), but to share these resources. The Walk For Life is nothing if not an educational vehicle to change hearts and minds. We have the opportunity to continue that in our own, less visible, quiet, yet no less effective way.

Abortion kills, by the numbers. What say those who think we must care for the least among us, yet think abortion is an acceptable "choice"?

It features some of the most prominent pro-life speakers, writers and activists, including two who have spoken at Family Foundation events at the capitol during recent General Assemblies: Ryan Bomberger and Jill Stanek.
