On January 9, 2013, Virginia Stands for Life Prayer Walk and Prayer Rally was held in Richmond, VA at the Capitol Bell Tower. In attendance were nearly 1,000 Virginians who value life from conception to maturity, regardless of ability.
The event, sponsored by more than two dozen pro-life organizations, was held to celebrate life and let Virginia lawmakers know residents support them after they passed several pro-life laws during last year’s legislative session.
