Students for Life Action Celebrates “the End of a Radical Abortion Trifecta” in Virginia that left Women and the Preborn in Danger 

 Read about the role SFLA Student Fellows played HERE. 

“With groups in all 50 states, Students for Life Action is daily doing the work of tireless grassroots activism, starting in our own home state of Virginia, and the results speak for themselves,” said SFLAction’s Kristan Hawkins. “This victory contradicts the tired analysis of too many in politics who refuse to see that a new generation demands a pro-life future for America and will work to achieve it.”  

 

  • SFLAction and Pro-Life Generation volunteers engaged in 34 targeted Virginia districts out of 100 statewide races
  • Activity included door knocking, texting, phone calls, e-mailing, social media, pro-life survey pro-life surveys, & a TV Spot.
  •  SFLAction teams covered the state with the message #VotePro-LifeFirst 
  • Corporate Abortion Lost Big: 36 candidates endorsed by the abortion lobby (in particular NARAL and Planned Parenthood) lost in VA last night. 
  • Pro-Life Voters got WAY MORE bang for their buck. Pro-Abortion advocates spent $4.13 million in Virginia compared to more than $415,000 by Pro-Life advocates. Source: Virginia Public Access Project 
  • The Trifecta of Democratic, Pro-Abortion Control has ended with the House headed back to the GOP and a win in the Governor’s office.  

 

 

FREDERICKSBURG, VA (11-02-2021) – As the Virginia House of Delegates flipped to a more pro-life perspective, Students for Life Action President Kristan Hawkins congratulated the newly elected pro-life office holders and welcomed them to the fight against the human rights issue of our day – abortion. “For too long in Virginia politics, radical abortion activists advanced policies as extreme as infanticide when expressing their absolute loyalty to the human rights atrocity of abortion. In response, Students for Life Action took the commonsense approach of looking for new legislative leadership, and today we are celebrating a change in the state House and the End of a Radical Abortion Trifecta in Virginia. We can’t wait to work alongside this winning team,” Hawkins observed. “This win adds to the momentum we need as we work for a Pro-Life Victory in 2022 at the national level. We are gearing up for a massive mobilization as look to the U.S. House and Senate in the election to come.”

 

Students for Life Action Congratulates the following lawmakers soon to be getting to work in the Commonwealth, all of whom pledged to 100 percent support pro-life policy, including:

 

  • Les Adams
  • John Avoli
  • Jason Ballard
  • Amanda Batten
  • Emily Brewer
  • Kathy Byron
  • Ronnie Campbell
  • Tara Durant

  • Dave LaRock
  • Bobby Orrock
  • Margaret Ransone
  • Chris Runion

In this election cycle, SFLAction engaged in 34 House of Delegate races where candidates pledged to vote 100% pro-life, with some races receiving special attention. Since the beginning of the year, we’ve been exposing the extreme abortion agenda of the pro-abortion trifecta in Virginia. We shared the pro-life message through door knocking, text messages, phone calls, and five-figure TV advertisement.

 

We exposed the radical positions of 19 House of Delegates candidate and 3 statewide candidates who were endorsed by Planned Parenthood and/or NARAL.

 

During this cycle in Virginia, SFLAction Team members and volunteers:

 

1. Knocked on more than 50,000 doors

2. Sent nearly 44,00 texts

3. Made more than 81,000 phone calls

4. Placed a Five-figure TV-ad exposing Terry McAuliffe’s extreme abortion positions
