President Trump Unites Pro-Life Supporters as Movement Surges at March for Life 2020

By David Kamioner | January 24, 2020

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.

Evangelist Franklin Graham, son of the famed pastor and advisor to presidents the late Rev. Billy Graham, Wednesday morning said on Facebook: “I’m going to do something on Friday that I’ve never done before — I’m going to march. I’m going to DC to walk in the March for Life.”

Pastor Jack Graham, no relation to Franklin Graham, said, “This is my first time. We’re at a tipping point on the issue of the sanctity of life in the country and the very fact that the president is speaking live for the first time just indicates the massive movement of life for evangelicals in the country.”

The young are also taking part.

“As soon as I found out about it…I purchased my ticket right away,” student Jordan Jantzen, 21, told Fox.

He continued, “I just continue to get blown away by seeing so many people my age. It shows that we are the pro-life generation and we believe the sanctity of human life is of utmost importance from conception until natural death.”

If the laws of this nation are ever to turn away from abortion it will not initially come from politicians, as most are too timid to buck what they think is a national consensus on the issue.

It will come from pro-life grassroots support like this march that is leveraged into political pressure at the ballot box and in campaign cash donated to pro-life candidates.

It is the only language the political class of this nation understands.

Pro-Life Advocates Arrested Outside Nancy Pelosi’s Office

By John Wesley Reid | January 23, 2020

Nine pro-life abolitionists were arrested yesterday outside of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office on Capitol Hill.

On the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision to standardize the regulatory limits of abortion nationwide, a group of abolitionists made their voices known that Pelosi’s influence in blocking pro-life legislation was not acceptable. The group included members of the newly founded Stanton Public Policy Center, which, in conjunction with the pro-life healthcare provider, Stanton Healthcare, is pushing for pro-life policies internationally.

The particular legislative blocks that the group was protesting about were laws that would have required abortionists to provide ambulatory care for babies who survive botched abortions.

“It is unacceptable that we as a nation would ever think that it would be okay to pass legislation in states that would allow for a baby to be killed after a botched, late-term abortion,” Stanton founder and CEO Brandi Swindell told LifeSiteNews.

Video captured by LifeSiteNews shows the demonstrators being arrested:

“There are people alive today who survived abortions, and their lives have just as much dignity and value as any other human being,” one advocate said, then asking that Pelosi would “see the value in those infants who are left aside in a bucket, to look at them with the dignity that she looks at America.”

The event was covered in prayer by Rev. Patrick Mahoney, director of the DC-based Christian Defense Coalition. Mahoney is well-known in DC as an advocate for justice and minister of the gospel at various events in the district.

“These little babies are fighting to survive an attempt for their life to be taken out, and then we give abortionists another opportunity to kill that baby? It’s wrong. It is not who we are as a society. It is barbaric. And so all of us here today, we represent the millions of Americans that reject abortion or reject late-term abortion. And so today was a moment of strength, it was a moment of power, it was a moment of speaking truth to power,” Swindell added.

The sit-in, branded as the Purple Sash Revolution, was held two days before the nation’s largest pro-life demonstration, the March for Life. On Friday, January 24th, tens of thousands of pro-life advocates will gather on the National Mall to hear from influential speakers in the pro-life community. After the rally, the crowd will march from the National Mall to the Supreme Court.

This year’s keynote speaker is President Trump who will be the first-ever sitting president to attend the March for Life in person. Trump has spoken to the crowd from the White House via satellite and Vice President Mike Pence has attended the event in person, but this will be the first time a sitting president has taken the opportunity to address the crowd directly in person.

Trump tweeted a video from last year’s March for Life while expressing his excitement to attend saying, “See you on Friday…Big Crowd!”

March for Life President Jeanne F. Mancini provided the following statement regarding President Trump’s attendance:

“We are deeply honored to welcome President Trump to the 47th annual March for Life. He will be the first president in history to attend and we are so excited for him to experience in person how passionate our marchers are about life and protecting the unborn. From the appointment of pro-life judges and federal workers, to cutting taxpayer funding for abortions here and abroad, to calling for an end to late-term abortions, President Trump and his Administration have been consistent champions for life and their support for the March for Life has been unwavering. We are grateful for all these pro-life accomplishments and look forward to gaining more victories for life in the future.”
