It was a historic moment today, as Donald Trump became the first sitting president to attend the annual March for Life. Below is the White House Live stream of the event. The speech is now over, so you’ll need to scrub to the -16:00 mark to hear the goods.
Young people are the heart of the movement, and it’s your generation that is making it a young, pro-life movement.
You embrace mothers with care and compassion. You’re powered by prayer and motivated by pure, unselfish love.
Every child is a precious and sacred gift from God. Together we must protect, cherish and defend the dignity and the sanctity of every human life.
Unborn children have never had a stronger defender in the White House.
As the Bible tells us, each person is wonderfully made.
The far left is working to erase our God-given rights… they’re coming after me because I’m fighting for you.
Together we’re a voice for the voiceless.
Nearly every top Democrat supports taxpayer-funded abortion all the way up until the moment of birth.
You make it your life’s mission to spread God’s grace.
Mothers are heroes. Your strength, devotion and drive is what powers our nation. And because of you our nation has been blessed with human souls who have changed the direction of our great nation.
Every life brings love into this world. Every child brings joy to a family. Every person is worth protecting. Every human soul is divine.
Yeah, that was a good speech. It will resonate with the right and especially the religious right. Before he became president, Trump was a little wishy-washy on abortion, in that we’ve got video of Trump saying his pro-choice. So yes, there will be skeptics wondering if Trump actually is pro-life.
But actions speak louder than words, and Trump has been a pro-life president. In fact I’d argue, as he probably would, the very attendance to the March for Life is a big deal. No other president has had the cojones to do so. Trump attending the March for Life forced networks like NBC to broadcast the live coverage, at least on YouTube. In the past, media has essentially ignored the March. But Trump’s attendance this year put them in a nasty spot.
Every single Democrat running for Trump’s job supports abortion, most up until birth. Donald Trump just zagged, and did what no other pro-life president was willing to do. My bet is this will pay off. Bigly. What say you?
