President Trump is set to make history as the first president to attend and speak at the 2020 March for Life.
“President Trump will deliver an in-person speech on Friday at the March for Life, an annual rally held in Washington protesting the legalization of abortion,” the Washington Examiner reports, noting that Trump’s in-person speech will make him “the first president in history to appear at the march, one of the highest-profile events of the anti-abortion movement.”

The president’s decision to appear in person at the event, which drew some 100,000 marchers last year, was announced on Wednesday, Jan. 22, the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the ruling that legalized abortion and prompted the founding of the march nearly five decades ago.
In a statement Wednesday, March for Life President Jeanne Mancini thanked Trump for his decision to attend the massive rally.
“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,” said Mancini. “We are grateful for all these pro-life accomplishments and look forward to gaining more victories for life in the future.” More

It’s not easy for Trump to take this position. Many will hate him for that. But President Trump has enormous courage and a desire to do the right thing. Too bad none of his predecessors had either the moral conviction or the backbone to do likewise. Thank you, President Trump, for believing every life has meaning and that every life is worth protecting.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
