Pro-life Advocates and Legislators to Address Marchers in Richmond on February 21, 2024
The March for Life Education and Defense Fund, partnered with the Family Foundation of Virginia, announced speakers for the sixth annual Virginia March for Life, occurring on Wednesday, February 21.
Marchers who gather at the Bell Tower outside of the Virginia Capitol Building to peacefully advocate for pro-life protections in state laws will be addressed by notable speakers, including: The Honorable Winsome Sears, Lieutenant Governor of Virginia; Dondi Costin, President, Liberty University; Felicia Pricenor, Vice President of Government Affairs, March for Life Education and Defense Fund; Victoria Cobb, President, Family Foundation of Virginia; Jonathan Alexandre, Senior Counsel, Liberty Counsel; and Candi Cushman, Vice President of Grassroots and Communications Strategies, Family Foundation of Virginia.
“The March for Life is delighted to once again partner with the Family Foundation of Virginia for the sixth annual Virginia March for Life as a part of the second annual Virginia Pro-Life Day. On this day, residents of the Commonwealth will advocate, rally, and march for care, compassion, and protection of both mother and child. With Virginia allowing abortion up until the third trimester, now more than ever, we need every person to witness and advocate for life affirming policies that support both mom and baby, born and unborn.” said Jeanne F. Mancini, President of March for Life Education and Defense Fund.
“After November’s disappointing elections, the abortion industry is counting their future profits at the expense of women with eager anticipation of passing a constitutional amendment enacting abortion on demand for any reason to the moment of birth. We will remind our elected officials that they will pay a steep political price if they go along with this abortion extremism,” said Victoria Cobb, President of the Virginia Family Foundation.
The Virginia March for Life on Wednesday, February 21, 2024, will start with a rally at the State Capitol building at 11:00 am ET followed by the march at 12:00 pm ET.
