of 45th March for Life
Modified from a press release by the Liberty Counsel.
President Donald Trump spoke at the 45th annual March for Life Rally in Washington, D.C. today, January 19, 2018. The event is described by organizers as the worlds largest pro-life gathering. Trump is the first sitting president to speak at the March for Life via a live video feed.
Vice President Mike Pence and Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway represented the White House last year and spoke in person at the event. Presidents Ronald Reagan, George Bush and George W. Bush all addressed the March for Life in previous years with pre-taped remarks or via a live phone call.
Pam Tebow, NFL/MLB player Tim Tebow’s mother, former NFL player Matt Birk and his wife Adrianna, House Speaker Paul Ryan, U.S. Representative Dan Lipinski, U.S. Representative Chris Smith and Sisters of Life’s Sr. Bethany Madonna, are also among the speakers.
This year’s March for Life theme is “Love Saves Lives” and the rally is held annually marking the anniversary of the 1973 Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion nationwide. Pro-life citizens will spend many hours traveling on buses from across the nation to participate in the march.
Participants will rally on the National Mall and then march to the Supreme Court building on Capitol Hill.
