President Trump has announced he’ll be the first sitting president to address the March for Life this week, according to the Daily Wire.
The White House made the announcement on Wednesday, just days before pilgrims from across the nation will travel to Washington to march on Capitol Hill.
Check it out:
This is a moral move for Trump – Roe v. Wade, decided in 1973, is not only one of the worst legal decisions in American history, but one of the most immoral. Abortions have been declining markedly across the United States since their heyday in the 1990s; in 1990, for example, the Centers for Disease Control reported 1.4 million abortions, while in 2013, that number was 644,435, less than half. The American people have also become significantly more pro-life over the decades, thanks to the hard work of the pro-life movement.
Speaking at the March for Life is also a smart political move for Trump – it’s a low cost way to reassure his base that he still maintains their priorities, especially in light of new reports regarding his sexual profligacy while married. Evangelical Christians have been Trump’s most solid supporters, and they will likely continue to do so if he speaks out strongly against abortion, despite his checkered history on the issue.

Trump is going to address the March for Life. Good for him. The Bushes never had the guts to do so.

President Trump will become the first sitting president to address the March for Life via satellite (others have called in), joining Speaker Paul Ryan in speaking to the nation's largest pro-life event this weekend. Last year, VP Pence spoke.
