  • President Trump Made A Special Appearance At March For Life

"I call upon the Senate to pass this vital law and send it to my work area for marking", Trump said in his deliver to the March forever, a yearly walk against premature birth in Washington, D.C.

President Donald Trump addresses members of the March for Life, at the White House in Washington, DC on January 19, 2018.

In his speech, the president touted anti-abortion policies that he has enacted in his first year in office, including this week's Department of Health and Human Services announcement that it would reverse Obama-era legal guidance discouraging states from defunding organisations that provide abortion services. "They declared these truths to be self-evident that we are each of us endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights, and that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness".

He was introduced at the event by his vice president, Mike Pence, who called him the most pro-life president in American history.

Poll after poll shows that 7 in 10 Americans support a woman's right to abortion, but this out of touch minority wants to take us back to a time when women weren't trusted to make their own decisions and, as a result, faced life or death consequences.

We know the president and the American people don't see eye to eye on a lot of things, but we really thought full-term pregnancies were something we all agreed were a good thing. The issue of the president's hypocrisy has been highlighted by many social media users. Today, the March for Life will remind a government with no shortage of passionate articulators of its responsibility to defend those who can not plead their own cause.

Like most pro-life leaders, Perkins remains committed to overturning Roe v. Wade but he says the "chipping away" of the abortion industry will continue at the state and federal level.

Trump's remarks came as part of the 45 anniversary March for Life, the large annual rally at the District of Columbia held on or around the anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade.

Noting that the United States is one of seven countries that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks, Trump also denounced such abortions as "wrong" and that "it has to change".

Since Trump took office, the executive branch has steadily eroded women's reproductive rights in the US and overseas. "I'm very well pleased with that and I'm grateful for his support", she said. Both Presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush spoke by phone.

Outside the clinic, the anti-abortion group stood together, rosaries in hand, praying.
