Empowering women begins with giving them real choice and the support they need when they need it. Economic support. Emotional support, real options for life’s tough decisions. Women are strong enough, smart enough, and capable enough to have a baby while still being happy and successful at work, school and life. That’s why pro-life means loving the little ones, the older ones, the vulnerable ones, and everyone empower women so they can have a choice.

Join pro-lifers from across the state. Vermont Right to Life is sponsoring a pro-life display in the Card Room inside the Vermont State House, and we invite pro-life participants to enjoy a coffee or beverage and light breakfast in the cafeteria.
The event is an opportunity to:
- Wear a pro-life button and let lawmakers know you stand for LIFE!
- Arrange to meet up with your Representative(s) or Senator(s) or at least let them know you care enough about the babies to be in attendance.
- Write your legislators a note and share your concern for the unborn and all human lives.
- Advocate for “An act relating to crimes against an unborn child”. Read more.
- Listen to proceedings on the House floor.
- Be a reminder to lawmakers, by your presence, that pro-lifers care about all lives ~ from conception until natural death.
- Stand up for life inside the People’s House and encourage our pro-life legislators to uphold the sanctity of EVERY human life.
Please carpool if at all possible as parking is limited in Montpelier. Free parking is still available behind the Department of Labor but the shuttle bus service has been discontinued so you would have to walk from there. Parking behind St. Augustine Church is possibly free at this time. Otherwise, metered street parking is limited to 2 hours and the car must be moved to a different location after that. Note: the parking spaces behind the Capitol Plaza are fully rented. You cannot park there.
The lives of Kaleb and Harley Blair were ended by an impaired driver who was convicted of criminal operation of a motor vehicle, but the court was unable to recognize that any death resulted from the crime because the Vermont Legislature has failed to acknowledge common sense in our state statutes.

Watch an interview with Patricia Blair about the loss of her twins.
Ask your representatives and senators to support legislation to recognize these unborn victims of crime. See An act relating to crimes against an unborn child.
Bills have been introduced in both the Vermont House and the Vermont Senate to recognize that a fetus should be treated as a victim when a crime of homicide, driving under the influence (DUI), or grossly negligent operation of a motor vehicle results in the death of an unborn child.
- H.779 – see the text of this bill as it was introduced by 20 members of the Vermont House
- S.276 – see the text of this bill as it was introduced by 2 members of the Vermont Senate
The “Bennington Babies” – Kaleb and Harley Blair – killed in August 2009, have yet to be recognized, in life or in death, by the State of Vermont. And they are not the only ones.
Participants in the 2024 Pro-Life Lobby Day will ask their representatives and senators to support this legislation. It is time for Vermont to join 39 states that recognize the unborn child as an additional victim of crime.
Chittenden County Right to Life will be staffing the pro-life booth at the Champlain Valley Fair.
