Speeches from the 44th March for Life

Here are a few of the speeches from yesterday’s March for Life. I have attended the march for years, but there was honestly something different about it yesterday. There was a different energy, a greater sense of hope that real change is coming and that momentum is growing for a deeper respect for the sanctity of human life in this country. Here are some of the highlights:

“I am a wife, a mother, a Catholic, counselor to the president of the United States of America, and yes, I am pro-life….this is a new day, a new dawn for life.” – Kellyanne Conway

“Life is winning again in America. …Compassion is overcoming convenience.” – Vice President Mike Pence

Congresswoman Mia Love (R-UT) gave an inspirational speech that has been called one of the greatest pro-life speeches ever given at the March. She told, in the process, her own story as a child who was spared from being aborted.

 

Kellyanne Conway to Attend March for Life

Kellyanne Conway, the first woman to successfully lead a presidential campaign to victory in U.S. history and currently Counselor to President Donald J. Trump, will attend and speak at the 43rd annual March for Life this Friday in Washington, D.C., Lifezette reports.

Sean Spicer, White House Press Secretary, has confirmed Conway’s attendance at the March and has hinted at the possible involvement of President Trump, commenting on the matter during the second official White House press conference.

“I know Kellyanne is going to attend the event,” he said. “I think we’re still working through the details, but we’ll have further information about the president’s potential participation.”

In less than a week of the Trump administration’s presence in the White House the administration has already taken major steps in implementing a pro-life agenda, counter to the Obama administration. Earlier this week President Trump signed an executive memorandum to reinstate a policy – the Mexico City Policy – that stops taxpayer funding of groups that provide and promote abortions overseas.

Pro-life gains have even come in Congress. Yesterday the House of Representatives voted to permanently ban taxpayer funding of abortion in the U.S., legislation President Trump promises to sign if the Senate approves it.

Meanwhile Planned Parenthood, the biggest abortion-provider in the country that receives tax-payer dollars, has come under heavy criticism as an investigative video has been released, showing that Planned Parenthood has lied about providing prenatal care as part of its services, the Daily Wire reports, concentrating predominantly on abortion. Here is the video exposing Planned Parenthood:

The annual March for Life in Washington, DC, is the biggest demonstration of people marching for the sanctity of human life. The event is held in January in light of the anniversary of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, the Supreme Court decisions that legalized abortion nationwide on January 22, 1973.
