Trump sends support to anti-abortion activists at March for Life

Trump sends support to anti-abortion activists at March for Life

In the following 46 years, the March for Life has become the biggest pro-life event in the U.S, according to march organizers.

In one of his most forceful denunciations of abortion rights to date, Trump intimated in a "National Sanctity of Human Life" proclamation that the high court's 1973 decision was wrong.

Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen Pence attended the annual March for Life led by opponents of abortion rights in Washington on Friday. The Pences also played a videotaped message from President Trump in which he vowed to always defend the right to life.

"Many of the policies that Speaker Pelosi threatens, for example the Hyde Amendment, are bipartisan pro-life protections supported by the American consensus", McClusky said.

The President shouted out his two successful nominations to the Supreme Court - Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch - and signaled he hopes the two conservative jurists are able to overturn Roe, which has been credited with affirming the constitutional right to abortion.

And Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said on Friday in a statement, "We are grateful to everyone participating in today's March for Life in support of our unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness".

President Donald Trump spoke via video hook-up and was greeted with thunderous applause as he promised to veto any pro-abortion legislation, in spite of Democrats taking a majority in the House. "Today, we grieve the loss of life".

Tens of thousands of anti-abortion activists rallied in Washington at the annual March for Life. For decades, they have prayed passionately and stood tirelessly for the sanctity of life, speaking up for those who can not speak for themselves. "We stand for women and children everywhere, to tell them we love you, we fight for you, and we are on the march for you". The media "will ignore us", Shapiro continued, and will pay more attention to "the five who show up tomorrow", referring to the Women's March scheduled for January 19 in Washington. Since I have been in Congress, I have consistently stood up for the unborn, and I continue to stand up for life.

"And so it is", Pence said, adding later he "couldn't be more proud to serve as vice president to the most pro-life president in American history".

"Righteousness doesn't have to be popular, it just has to be righteous".

It was a multicolored sea of people, old and young, with some sporting bright blue knit hats, others wearing neon yellow hooded sweatshirts.
