President Trump will deliver an in-person speech on Friday at the March for Life, an annual rally held in Washington protesting the legalization of abortion.
Election-year politics will play into this year’s March for Life, billed as the largest annual protest on behalf of human rights.
On Wednesday, leadership of the march announced that President Donald Trump will speak live at their 47th annual peaceful protest on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
“He will be the first president in history to attend,” said Jeanne Mancini, president of the March for Life, in a statement. “We are so excited for him to experience in person how passionate our marchers are about life and protecting the unborn.”
“From the appointment of pro-life judges and federal workers, to cutting taxpayer funding for abortions here and abroad, to calling for an end to late-term abortions, President Trump and his administration have been consistent champions for life and their support for the March for Life has been unwavering,” she said. “We are grateful for all these pro-life accomplishments and look forward to gaining more victories for life in the future.”
