WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) released the following statement on the passing of March for Life founder Nellie Gray:

“Today, we all mourn the loss of Nellie Gray, a hero of the pro-life cause, and founder of the annual March for Life in Washington, DC. She dedicated her life to fighting for those who cannot fight for themselves, the unborn, or, in Nellie's words, the preborn. We'll all miss seeing Nellie in her red coat on the stage before the crowds that have grown to the hundreds of thousands, leading the throngs past the Supreme Court and at the Capitol on those bitterly cold January days. We will continue her fight.”
