Tomorrow we will once again be able to cast a vote in favor of unborn children to save them from a cruel and violent death by abortion. Who you vote for on Tuesday, November 6 will make a difference in which existing laws can be protected and which new measures can be passed, both at the federal and state level!

All of Virginia’s Congressional seats are in play as well as one of our U.S. Senate seats. Virginia has a strong pro-life delegation to Washington DC. Out of our eleven Congressional districts, we have been represented by seven pro-life Representatives.

We must not let pro-abortion forces replace any of those seats with pro-abortion individuals. Your votes can prevent that from happening.

Below you will see a list of the Congressional candidates endorsed by VSHLPAC this year. Please share it with your friends and family.


District 1: Rob Wittman (incumbent)
District 2: Scott Taylor (incumbent)
District 4: Ryan McAdams (challenger)
District 5: Denver Riggleman (open seat)
District 6: Ben Cline (open seat)
District 7: Dave Brat (incumbent)
District 9: Morgan Griffith (incumbent)
District 10: Barbara Comstock (incumbent)
District 11: Jeff Dove (challenger)

Last year the Commonwealth of Virginians proved to the country just how important one vote can be: The race for the control of the Virginia House of Delegates depended on the outcome in one particular election which was decided by exactly one vote!

Now this November we MUST hold on to pro-life control in the House. There is a special race in the 8th House of Delegates district, Salem-Roanoke area, which will once again decide the control of Virginia’s House of Delegates.

This race will also decide if VSHL can protect the strong pro-life laws that we have worked so hard to gain over the years. Pro-life Joe McNamara has been endorsed in that race by the VSHLPAC. If you have friends or family in that district, please make sure they get to the polls on Tuesday.

VSHLPAC endorses: Joe McNamara for Virginia House of Delegates 8th.

Thank you for helping VSHL get out the pro-life vote. We can’t do this without you!
