LifeSite has posted the text of Pres. Trump’s address to the March for Life.
The March for Life is a movement born out of love: you love your families; you love your neighbors; you love our nation; and you love every child born and unborn, because you believe that every life is sacred, that every child is a precious gift from God.
We know that life is the greatest miracle of all. We see it in the eyes of every new mother who cradles that wonderful, innocent, and glorious-newborn child in her loving arms. I want to thank every person here today and all across our country who works with such big hearts and tireless devotion to make sure that parents have the caring support they need to choose life.
Because of you, tens of thousands of Americans have been born and reached their full God-given potential, because of you. You’re living witnesses of this year’s March for life theme, and that theme is, ‘Love Saves Lives.’
As you all know Roe versus Wade has resulted in some of the most permissive abortion laws anywhere in the world. For example, in the United States, it’s one of only seven countries to allow elective late-term abortions along with China North Korea and others. Right now, in a number of States, the laws allow a baby to be born [sic, aborted] from his or her mother’s womb in the ninth month.
It is wrong. It has to change.
Americans are more and more pro-life. You see that all the time. In fact, only 12% of Americans support abortion on demand at any time.
Under my administration, we will always defend the very first right in the Declaration of Independent, and that is the ‘right to life.’
Contrast that with the last guy.
Today is the 1st anniversary of his inauguration.
This morning a friend said that she heard a major network say that there were maybe 40000 people at the “so-called” March for Life.
Go HERE to LifeSite to watch an AMAZING time-lapse video and ask yourself if that was 40K.
I’d like to know the true estimate. 500K?
Meanwhile, in Chile, Pope Francis celebrated a Mass. I think they expected more people.
