Always be LOUD AND PROUD, fellow pro-lifers. Always speak up for human life, inside and out of the womb.
Democratic Mayor Justin Wilson of Alexandria, VA, pulled a resolution that thanked abortion providers.
If you live in Alexandria, Virginia, City Council this Tuesday has on agenda making March 10 Abortion Provider Appreciation Day. https://t.co/fv6YnKdgn2

Wilson said in an email they pulled the resolution at his “request.” The Alexandria City Council would have voted on the proclamation today. From The Daily Wire:
The mayor acknowledged that there is “controversy associated with the provision of abortion services, but our effort is to recognize the healthcare workers for the work that they do in our City.”
“The proclamation you are referring to is part of a national effort, timed to occur 29 years after the date of the murder of an OB-GYN in Florida, who was murdered for providing legal and safe healthcare services,” he explained.
It’s disgusting someone murdered the OB-GYN. The murderer is not pro-life nor does the person provide an accurate representation of the million pro-lifers in America.
Arlington Bishop Michael Burbidge pleaded with Alexandria residents to condemn the resolution:
“Violence of every kind must be condemned, and abortion is a direct, violent attack on human life,” Burbidge said in a statement. “Proposing a celebration of abortion and an ‘appreciation day’ for those who destroy lives defies comprehension.”
“The City of Alexandria should instead do the opposite,” he continued. “It should celebrate all those who save, protect and care for human life. It should re-direct its focus toward recognizing and supporting both mothers and their children, as so many dedicated and compassionate people in Alexandria do each day.”
Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin told The Daily Wire he was “saddened and disappointed” Alexandria even considered making the proclamation.DONATE
