So many TV ads, political mailers, phone calls, tweets, texts, emails, and social media messages. It seems like Election Day will never come. But it does, and it is tomorrow!
Everything that we have worked so hard to do in order to protect innocent unborn children in Virginia hangs in the balance. It all comes down to the vote you will cast on Tuesday, November 5th. Pro-lifers have only a one-vote majority in the state Assembly and a one-vote majority in the State Senate.

Our efforts to share the facts about what lies ahead if pro-abortion candidates gain complete control of the Virginia General Assembly are coming to a close. But there is still time for you to help make sure that every person you know is ready to vote.
Can you drive a friend? Does someone need a babysitter? Does the teenage voter in the house know how to go to the polling place and what happens when they do?
Don’t assume you can’t do more to help get out the pro-life vote personally.
Did you know that there is a special service available for elderly voters? It’s called curbside voting, and it may help some pro-life voters who aren’t sure they can walk or stand at the polling place. The info below is from the Virginia Department of Elections.
Curbside voting and other assistance is available
If you required assistance in reading or completing forms, please ask an election official to provide help. You may also bring your own helper. If you have a physical disability, help is available. Please ask an election officer for assistance you may need at any stage of the voting process.
If you are 65 or older, or have a physical disability, you are may vote on Election Day without leaving your vehicle, this is called curbside voting. If you would like to use curbside voting, remember to bring a helper with you who can enter the polling place to ask an election officer for curbside assistance.
Remember, if you have questions, ask an election officer to explain your rights.
What happens if they win?
Some of you may have seen the link [https://vshl.org/what-we-are-facing-if-pro-abortion-democrats-win-in-this-election-cycle] posted on the Virginia Society for Human Life Website that shared the video of a press conference in January held by NARAL and the pro-abortion leadership at the General Assembly. Governor Ralph Northam was there, too.
During that event they threw down the gauntlet and made it very clear what they plan for these elections: to flip the General Assembly and pass their deadly agenda! The Governor makes it plain: “If we can’t change minds, we will change seats.”
I have such gratitude to so many who have stepped up to support what VSHL is doing to bring about a pro-life victory in these elections. It is always essential to have your support. We can only do what must be done when you commit to support the projects we plan.
Every gift makes a difference in what can be done.
So, today you can still help by making a donation to cover the costs of radio ads, internet ads, phone calls, and mailings. All the campaign season activity will be worth it when we are celebrating retaining pro-life control of the General Assembly.
It will be worth it when we are able to defeat attempts to drag up their radical abortion agenda again.
It will be worth it when we send a message to all of America that the Commonwealth of Virginia cannot be bought by pro-abortion millions.
This is it! Tuesday, we go to the polls to save our Commonwealth from those who are determined to make us into New York or California. We can do this!
Vote at your regular polling place between 6:00 am and 7:00 pm. Don’t stay home. Don’t forget. Don’t depend on anyone else.
It’s up to you!
The babies are counting on you!
