Pres. Trump: A historic voice for life

Donald Trump will be the first sitting president to personally address the annual March for Life in the event’s 47-year history. He is scheduled to speak at 12pm (ET).

The national Washington, D.C. rally draws tens of thousands of pro-life supporters yearly. Today, January 24, 2020 they converge on the National Mall and march on Capitol Hill. Additional rallies are being held across the United States, marking the anniversary of the notorious Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision which legalized abortion and allows elective late-term abortions. 

This year’s theme is, “Life Empowers: Pro-life is pro-woman.”

Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life, called President Trump and his administration “consistent champions” of the March for Life movement, citing his appointment of conservative judges, efforts to cut taxpayer funding for abortions, and his calls for an end to late-term abortions.

With new technology and medical advances allowing life-saving procedures to be performed in-utero, Americans realize these are babies, and not disposable blobs of cells. Mayo Clinic provides an overview of fetal surgery procedures that treat potentially disastrous birth defects.

A January 2020 Gallup polling survey shows 58% of Americans say they are dissatisfied with the nation’s policies on abortion, desiring stricter laws, marking a seven-percentage-point increase from one year ago and a new high in Gallup’s trend. On the flip side, 32% are now satisfied, a new low.

    C-Span is supposed to provide video coverage of this pro-life event featuring Pres. Trump. Instead all I can find on my computer screen are anti-Trump videos and impeachment coverage. I shouldn’t be surprised, but I am angry.

  2. Maggie says:

    It’s always easy to spot abortion supporters. They use the bogus term “reproductive rights” to describe murder of pre-born human babies. Often these are the same people who are adamant about saving the snail darter. In an age where reliable contraception prevent pregnancies, the arguments for what in many cases amount to infanticide ring hollow.

  3. State Delegate says:

    His pro-life stance is just another reason the pro-death dems hate Pres. Trump.

  4. Braveheart says:

    This news just adds to the list of reasons why I’m proud to call Donald J. Trump my president.
