UNITED STATES−President Trump became the first President in history to speak at the annual pro-life march in Washington D.C. on Saturday, January 24, 2020.
President Trump took the stage to the tune of Lee Greenwood’s, “God Bless the U.S.A.” Accompanied with him on the stage were well known pro-life activists including, Dr. Alveda King, the niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He took a moment to compliment the tens of thousands who were in attendance, calling some of the special guest by name, including;
Secretary Alex Azar, counselor to the President, Kellyanne Conway, Senators Mike Lee and James Lankford, Rep., Steve Scalise, Chris Smith, Ralph Abraham, Warren Davidson, Bob Latta, John Joyce, Lloyd Smucker, Brian Fitzpatrick, and Brad Wenstrup.
“It is my profound honor to be the first President in history to attend the March for Life,” the President stated to a roaring crowd. “We’re here for a very simple reason to defend the right of every child born and unborn to fulfill their God given potential. For 47 years American’s of all backgrounds have traveled from across the country to stand for life, and today, as President of the United States, I am truly proud to stand with you.”
“All of us here today understand an eternal truth. Every Child is a precious and sacred gift from God. Together, we must protect, cherish, and defend the dignity and the sanctity of every human life. When we see the image of the baby in the womb, we glimpse the majesty of God’s creation. When we hold a newborn in our arms, we know the endless love that each child brings to a family. When we watch a child grow, we see the splendor that radiates from human soul. One life child changes the world.”
President Trump cited pro-life accomplishments made beginning the first day he took office;

Governing the use of title X tax payer funding-No tax-payer funds used to fund agencies that perform or refer for abortions

President Trump concluded.
“Unborn children have never had a stronger defender in the White House, and as the Bible tells us, each person is wonderfully made. We have taken decisive action to protect the religious liberty, so important, has been under attack all over the world, and frankly very strongly attacked in our nation, but we are stopping it. We are taking care of doctors, nurses, and groups like, Little Sisters of the Poor.”
