The NOVA Project is calling on pro-life leadership and individuals across the state to join in a united outcry for the unborn and the defenseless on October 23 from 2-4 pm at the Government Center Elipse in Fairfax, Virginia. The Northern Virginia IS Pro-Life Rally will bring together Virginia's large number of pro-life leaders and volunteers, strengthen our bonds and unity, and encourage our representatives in government to end abortion in our state, which steals the lives of 30,000 Virginians every year. 

Pro-life and Christian leaders and people from all over Northern Virginia will gather to proclaim the fact that support for Life is strong and growing in an area long assumed to be indifferent, if not hostile to the Sanctity of Life. Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell has made his commitment to Life clear, and stands with us. As we go into election day this November, let us "Stand Up and Be Counted" for Life, encouraging more and more of our elected leaders to join us. 

Referencing the SANE campaign, Rachel Sargent, Vice-President of Pro-Life Unity stated "We must Stop Abortion Now Everywhere (SANE). The future of this great land cannot endure another 37 years and 53 million lives lost. If abortion is to end, we need 'all hands on deck' in Virginia and all over America. This task is for all of us to complete. Let us shout from the east to the west coast that the murder of the innocent unborn is absolutely unacceptable and will not be tolerated any longer."
