Governor Glenn Youngkin joined thousands of pro-life people today at the Virginia March for Life, where he joined in the peaceful walk to protest abortion. Youngkin left the state capitol and was photographed meeting with pro-life people before ultimate walking with them in the March.

What a refreshing change in Virginia from a governor who wanted to keep babies comfortable before they’re killed in infanticide to a governor who literally marches with pro-life people against abortion.

In her speech, Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears stated “I know that there are some people in the crowd that do not believe what we believe — that Abortion is wicked.”

Earlier this year, Youngkin confirmed his commitment to protecting unborn babies from abortion Wednesday when he created a new “ambassador for unborn children” position in his administration

In an executive order, the new governor added the pro-life ambassador role to the tasks of his Chief Diversity, Opportunity & Inclusion Officer.

The diversity officer will work to promote “ideas, policies and practices to eliminate disparities in pre-natal care, and be an ambassador for unborn children,” according to the order. Additionally, the diversity officer will “promote free speech and civil discourse in civic life, including viewpoint diversity in higher education in coordination with the Secretary of Education.”

According to the governor’s office, Youngkin revised the position to create “a stronger and more focused role on promoting ideas, policies and economic opportunities for disadvantaged Virginians,” including unborn babies and people with disabilities.

During the event, Olivia Gans of the Virginia Society for Human Life told participants, “We must continue forward, always looking for the opportunities open to us to protect preborn human life.”

And Lt. Governor Winsome Sears said about fighting abortion: “We cannot be cowardly in what we do because we know that we have right on our side.”

Youngkin’s predecessor, Gov. Ralph Northam, was a favorite of Planned Parenthood, advocating for abortion on demand and even defending infanticide.

Now, Youngkin is using the position to advocate for the most disadvantaged population of all: unborn babies. He has been filling his administration with pro-life leaders, too, including former Heritage Foundation president Kay C. James as secretary of the commonwealth.
