“This year, ABC, CBS and NBC have no excuse to silence these pro-life voices. The networks heavily promoted the Women’s March on Washington, helping boost its attendance.” – Alliance for Fair Coverage of Life Issues
(Washington, DC) — [CBN News] After years of hiding in the shadows, this year’s March for Life is stepping into the spotlight, thanks to support from President Donald Trump and a campaign aimed at stepping up media coverage. And for the first time ever, a U.S. vice president will be headlining this huge gathering in Washington. (Photo Credit: Flickr)
Tens of thousands of women are expected to participate in Friday’s march in Washington, DC. The annual event celebrates life and protests abortion and the 1973 Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision that legalized it.
In a major show of support from the administration, Vice President Mike Pence is addressing the tens of thousands of pro-lifers at the march Friday. Pence’s address is historic since this is the first time a vice president will ever speak at the March for Life event.
“Honored to meet with pro-life leaders tonight,” Pence tweeted Thursday. “I look forward to addressing National [March for Life] on Friday.”
Pence will be one of two Trump administration officials to address the crowd in the nation’s capital. Senior advisor Kellyanne Conway will speak at the March for Life and President Trump even promoted the event in a Wednesday interview with ABC’s David Muir. (Click to Article)
