A Seemingly Small Pro-Life Win In A Deep Blue Stronghold Has BIG Implications
Democrats are paralyzed after losing a pro-life battle in a deep blue stronghold.
Alexandria, Virginia is one of the richest areas in the country and it is home to the deep state. The DC suburb is where many of those who work in Washington live and it is profoundly Democrat. During the 2020 election, 80 percent of the residents voted for Biden and 75 percent supported McAuliffe for governor in 2021.
The woke city council was preparing a motion to declare March 10 as “Abortion Provider Appreciation Day” in remembrance of the murdered abortionist David Gunn.
Members of the community quickly expressed their outrage.
“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. It should celebrate all those who save, protect and care for human life,” Michael Burbidge, bishop of the Arlington Diocese said.
As the pressure increased city officials removed Gunn from the declaration however still tried to move ahead with the proclamation.
From the American Spectator:
Around 30 people gathered in front of city hall before the council meeting. One demonstrator, Larry Cirignano, “This is an ecumenical group. We have Catholics, Protestants, and even some secular people here.” Another activist stated that he was there to show that “Some people don’t approve of murder in this city.”
About one hour into the meeting, the activists left the city chambers and chanted slogans including “We Shall Stop Abortion” and “Hey, Hey, Mayor J., How Many Babies Died Today?” from the sidewalk below. They kept the chants up for about an hour.
From an abortion supporter’s perspective, the city council was bowing to pressure and failing to protect a woman’s “right to choose” by refusing to go forward with “Abortion Provider Appreciation Day.” Still, there was no mustering of the pro-abortion forces, and the proposed proclamation was not even mentioned by the city council.
Just like that city officials decided to just let it go.
This may seem like a small victory but it has huge implications. If an area like Alexandria, Virginia is backing off pro-choice policies just imagine what is occurring in purple areas around the country.
