- Trump becomes first President to attend March For Life: ‘Every person is worth protecting’
The Daily Caller reported in a 24 January 2020 article on the historic speech by President Trump.
President Donald Trump became the first U.S. president to attend the annual March For Life on Friday, telling the crowd that he believes “every person is worth protecting.”
Hundreds of thousands of people gather every year in Washington, DC for the march in opposition to abortion. Vice President Mike Pence has attended the march in the past and Trump has addressed the rally goers in video messages, but this is the first year that the president attended in person.
“It is my profound honor to be the first president in history to attend the March for Life!” Trump told the 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.”
“Every life brings love into this world,” Trump said. “Every person is worth protecting.”
Trump knocked several Democrats during his speech for their pro-abortion comments, particularly Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, who suggested that mothers and doctors should be allowed to kill children shortly after they are born.
“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother,” Northam said during an interview last year.
Trump has implemented several pro-life policies since taking office, including declaring that taxpayer funds can no longer be used for abortion referrals under Title X. Planned Parenthood opted out of Title X program funding rather than stop referring women for abortions.

Better than the common defense “you may be aborting the person to cure cancer”
Better than the worthless-until-proven posit, President Trump’s suggestion that all people (even those born with disabilities or those who stutter — like San Fran Nan) have the image of God upon them (for those who were schooled under the tutelage of nuns, that would be the imago dei).
- Lifezette also reports on Trump’s historic speech
In a 24 January 2020 article, Livezette reported on the speech by President Trump at the March for Life.
Fox News reports that from laymen to leaders, conservative and pro-life Christians are showing up at Friday’s DC pro-life March for Life in droves.
Many of them are no doubt encouraged and thrilled at the scheduled appearance of President Donald Trump.
Trump is the first U.S. president to ever address the rally in person.
Appearing on “Fox & Friends: First” with host Heather Childers, March for Life president Jeanne Mancini said that President Trump has “absolutely put his money where his mouth is” on pro-life issues.
Their own words speak volumes as to their commitment to this cause.
“Inviting wonderful Evangelical leaders like … Pastor David Platt from McLean Bible Church, Rev. Dr. Matthew Harrison of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod and Jim Daly, President of Focus on the Family, to participate is one small way we do this. We want to do everything possible to welcome pro-life people of all faiths to the March for Life,” said march organizer Jeanne Mancini.
The march began in 1974 as mainly a Roman Catholic event. It has expanded to include all faiths.

A first ignored by the main stream media
While the main stream media focuses on the third impeachment of a president (mind you, the first to be impeached without being charged with a crime), they ignore the first time a sitting president speaks to the March for Life.
- Exclusive: Mike Pence’s daughter, Charlotte Pence explains why being Pro-Life is Pro-Woman
The Daily Caller reported in a 24 January 2020 article on the words of Charlotte Pense.
Charlotte Pence Bond, author and the daughter of Vice President Mike Pence sat down with the Daily Caller’s Stephanie Hamill for a wide-ranging interview on her views of the pro-life movement.
Bond explained to the Caller why she’s a supporter of the pro-life movement and why she believes being pro-life is actually pro-woman.
“The pro-choice movement isn’t pro-women, I think it’s ultimately sending a message of defeat, I think it’s giving women a choice, but really they’re not given a choice, they’re told what to do,” said Bond.
She also gave reaction to President Donald Trump speaking at the March For Life rally in Washington D.C. on Friday.

It’s a good thing that the press never idolizes the children of politicians
In this case, the press barely gave Mrs. Bond the time of day. It’s a good thing that people like Chelsea Clinton or Meghan McCain don’t get a special consideration by the press (and especially not for any far-left positions held).
- Thousands of college students will travel up to 24 hours on a bus for this DC protest
The Daily Caller also reported in a 21 January 2020 article on the thousands of college students who traveled up to 24 hours on bus to attend the march.
College students throughout the United States will take bus trips up to 24 hours long as they head to the nation’s capital to “bring awareness to the horrors of abortion and the beauty of life.”
Many college students who are preparing to go to the March for Life on Friday face at least a full day of traveling on a packed bus for a short trip — but they said they could not be more excited.
The Daily Caller News Foundation spoke with students and leaders at Christian colleges and universities across the country who described how students are willing to make sacrifices and take initiative to make sure they get to the 47th annual March for Life.

The last time I heard “college” it seems I also heard “liberal”
The last time I heard about a college, I remember hearing the words “socialist,” “liberal,” and other such words. However, this report (like the report posted in early January) provides significant hope. Thank God (and I do mean it)!
- Flashback: March For Life Defeats Obama Administration In Court
In a flashback to 2015, the Daily Caller points out how the Obama administration lost to the March for Life.
A federal court prohibited the Obama administration from forcing a pro-life nonprofit to insure “abortion-inducing” contraceptives Monday, in what is the first exemption from the mandate granted to a secular organization.
March for Life, which holds a pro-life rally every January in Washington, D.C., filed suit against three federal agencies last year, demanding an exemption from the mandate. It requires employers to provide insurance coverage for 20 FDA-approved contraceptives at no extra cost to the employee — including birth control pills March for Life and other pro-lifers believe are a form of abortion.
A D.C. District Court sided with March for Life Monday, signaling organizations that are not overtly religious can be exempted from the mandate, in addition to those which fall under a religious exemption put in place.
“If the purpose of the religious employer exemption is, as HHS states, to respect the anti-abortifacient tenets of an employment relationship, then it makes no rational sense-indeed, no sense whatsoever to deny March for Life that same respect,” the decision states.
The Obama administration formulated the religious exemption after a decisive defeat last year in a case against Hobby Lobby. Religious employers can exempted if they notify the Department of Health and Human Services or their insurance providers that they have religious objections to birth control coverage.

Least any of you forget the strong dictatorial tendencies of the last socialist-leaning administration
Christians must forgive; however, for us to learn from history, we must also not forget the past while we forgive the people. Remember the letter to the Ephesians:
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12 NASB)
