President Donald Trump has become the first sitting president of the United States to directly address the annual March for Life.
He Spoke via satellite from the Rose Garden of the White House on Friday, Trump expressed his “honour” and “pride” in being the first commander-in-chief to address the March for Life.
He stated: “Today, tens of thousands of families, students, and patriots, and really just great citizens, gather here in our Nation’s Capital,” his speech broadcast on a large screen before the March for Life rally attendees at the National Mall.
He further added “You come from many backgrounds, many places, but you all come for one beautiful cause: to build a society where life is celebrated, protected, and cherished. The March for Life is a movement born out of love. You love your families, you love your neighbours, you love our nation, and you love every child, born and unborn, because you believe that every life is sacred, that every child is a precious gift from God. Because of you, tens of thousands of Americans have been born and reached their full God-given potential.”
This year’s theme for the March for Life was “Love Saves Lives,” which March for Life President Jeanne Mancini stated last October was the fundamental premise of the pro-life movement.
“Choosing life is not always easy, but it is the loving, empowering, and self-sacrificial option. Love is universally attractive because it is directed towards others,” Said Mancini.
