Despite freezing weather and short notice, a large group of pro-life activists turned up in Lorton, Virginia, to express outrage and opposition to Delegate Kathy Tran’s (D-Fairfax) proposed bill in the state’s General Assembly to allow abortion up to the moment of birth.
Following videos of Tran explaining that the legislation would allow abortion through the third trimester of pregnancy, and Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam explaining that a baby who survived abortion would be “kept comfortable” while his or her fate was decided, caused a backlash and the bill was tabled.
But protesters were not satisfied.
“Here’s one thing we want you to know,” Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony List, said at the event. “If you seek to build women’s rights upon the broken bodies of American children you will fail.”
“We’re in a defining moment in this nation,” Dannenfelser said. “The almost- or just-born boy or girl is becoming visible to Americans all around the nation.”
