Since the 1973 Supreme Court decision legalized abortion, more than 63 million preborn babies have been killed.
At one point, Virginia had some decent pro-life laws on the books, but Olivia Turner of the Virginia Society for Human Life tells AFN "rabid" abortion folks began winning state elections.
"We face a huge obstacle course, because as we know, the general, mild amendment to prevent taxpayer funding of abortions in Virginia was defeated by the rabid pro-abortion members of the Senate," she details. "So at this point, we are in a position in Virginia where we are a safe haven for abortion practice."
But just as the state became pro-abortion, she says it can once again become pro-life in the next state election in 2023.
"We have to hold the House and keep a pro-life majority there," Turner recognizes. "Then we must remove the pro-abortion obstacle course that has been the Virginia Senate. So there are things to do."
The pro-life community faces the same chore in states like New York, Colorado, California, Washington, and Oregon.
