The theme for March for Life 2017 is "The Power of One."
“Even the smallest person can change the course of history.” – J.R.R. TolkienVice President Mike Pence will be addressing the rally.
One person can make a difference in the world, whether in the life of one person or many. Sadly, in the U.S. alone, more than 1 million babies are not even given the opportunity to live and change the world each year. Building a culture of life and ending abortion takes each and every person. Starting with your family or neighborhood, our collective efforts will change hearts and minds, save lives, and build a culture of life.
From the Associated Press:
Vice President Mike Pence has agreed to speak at Friday's March for Life, the annual anti-abortion demonstration in Washington.
In a statement, the March for Life says neither a president nor a vice president has ever spoken at the event, now in its 44th year.
One of President Donald Trump's top advisers, Kellyanne Conway, is also on the list of speakers.
In a statement, the president of the March for Life, Jeanne Mancini, calls Pence "a friend and champion of the pro-life cause his entire career." The organization predicts tens of thousands of demonstrators will rally on the National Mall and then march to the Supreme Court.
This is significant.
Mike Pence's participation shows that this new administration is truly committed to building a culture of life.
Again, I think of how different it would be if Hillary Clinton had won the election, the woman who supports even the ghastly partial-birth abortion procedure.
That should give the Never Trump people pause.
In addition to Vice President Pence, speakers include:
Kellyanne Conway, Senior Counselor to President Trump.
Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York City.
Benjamin Watson, Tight End for the Baltimore Ravens.
Abby Johnson, Former Planned Parenthood Director and founder of “And Then There Were None”.
Karyme Lozano, Mexican telenovela star.
Eric Metaxas, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author and host of The Eric Metaxas Show.
Bishop Vincent Mathews Jr., President at Church of God In Christ World Missions.
Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA).
Rep. Mia Love (R-UT).
Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ).
