(Jan. 24, 2020) — At 12:28 p.m. EST on Friday, President Donald J. Trump became the first president in U.S. history to speak at the annual March for Life, held each year to assert the right to life of all unborn children.

The event began after the issuance of the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade, which claimed that no state could prevent a woman from seeking an abortion.

Last year, Vice President Mike Pence spoke at the event, which is held on the National Mall in Washington, DC.

Behind Trump stood Sen. Mike Lee on one side and Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., on the other.  Trump noted that the event has taken place for “47 years,” since the Roe opinion was issued.

“Every child is a previous and sacred gift from God,” Trump said at 12:31.  “One life changes the world…from the first day in office, “I’ve taken historic action for America’s families and to protect the unborn.”

He said that “no one has been a better friend” to the pro-life movement.  “As the Bible tells us, each person is wonderfully made.”

Trump praised those active as pro-life ambassadors by promoting adoption, helping expectant mothers in need, and by “spreading God’s grace.”

At 12:41, in his closing remarks, Trump said, “I love you all,” and “God bless you, and God bless America.”

    And this was a great speech. Other than his support for the march, I was particularly pleased that he mentioned the penalties against universities/colleges for infringing first amendment rights, and any opposition to the UN is good.

    “Global bureaucrats have no business attacking the sovereignty of nations that protect innocent life.

    Every human life…born and unborn…is made in the Holy image of almighty God. ”

    –Donald Trump

    When is the last time that you heard the leader of a country say “I love you all…”? I’m a man. I was in tears. Mainly because I believe him.

    I am completely unaware of all of the acrimony that the president has been through, but it must be massive…especially based on the fact that I did manage to watch the entirety of the House Intel Committee hearings–almost every excruciating second. Does anyone remember Yovonovitch being asked how her family felt about her being fired? Does anyone remember that George Kent’s father attended Annapolis the same year that Roger Staubach won the Heisman? Does anyone think that those things are pertinent when we’re facing the impeachment of a president? Are politics so mysterious that those things were worth the hundred dollars spent on the time to mention them?

    Why did I put myself through that? Glutton for punishment? No. But I wanted to be armed with all of the facts for friends and family. And I even managed to make it through most of the next sets of hearing. The least I can do for someone who is dealing with that kind of “malarkey” all the time. I’ve even read the China deal, and Obama’s Iran farce deal…all so that I can say, “Have you read the Iran deal? Have you read the China trade deal…the entire thing? Have you read the transcript? Do you know Islamic eschatology? How many virgins are you expecting when you get to heaven? Have you read the Paris Climate Accord? Do you know what your country pledged?” So that I would be armed to the teeth with every piece of information necessary to enlighten the minds of those without the time to really look into it, or those who don’t have a conservative media in their country.

    This is the most critical time in the history of the entire world, in actual fact. If the USA flips to communism, there will be no flipping it back. You could think that things won’t go that fast, but they will. The Dems are disregarding the constitution daily…undermining it. And skirting it. They get into office, or get a majority in both houses, they will turn the government into a parliamentary tyranny. Whoever they choose for president will be a glorified gopher.

    And I just saw on Jeanine Pirro’s show: Lee Zeldin said that many of the impeachment “managers” voted against aid to Ukraine. I hope that they shove that in the faces of those managers in the ensuing days. Aid was such a matter of security for Ukraine AND THE USA (which is when you know the dems are lyiing…other than their lips moving…when they imply that they care about US national security), and Jeffries voted against it.

    God Bless President Trump. The “Right to Life” is our number one right, given to us by God. That makes it an immutable fact that Abortion is unconstitutional on it’s face. One cannot make a law,rule or regulation that abrogates a right guaranteed by the Constitution- Miranda v Arizona, USSCt.

    There is no doubt that a “New” life begins at conception. A new Human Life. Science has advanced to the point where this can be and has been proven. The creation of a new human being is accomplished between three individuals, A Mother, a Father and God Almighty. God is the source of all life.

    Since the first Human Couple, known as Adam and Eve, the breath of life breathed into Adam and Eve has never ceased to exist. Life is passed down from generation to generation. Think about that. Basic Biology tells us that A male sperm cell must join with a female ovum to produce a new life. Both sperm and ovum are already alive when they join to form a new life.

    Did you knows that every Ovi that a woman has in life are born with said woman. Spoken in other terms., 50% of every human being was already born at the same time that their Mother was born. A female is born with her ovi. They are carried through the Mother’s life. This is why there may be problems with some children of older Mothers.

    The ovis age with the Mother. My point is that a new life does not just begin at conception. The two parts that conglomerate into that new life are already alive. Life Continues from the dawn of Man onward till the end of time.

    This is a huge item and article. I am surprised for such little feedback or responses. Of all of Trumps accomplishments his stance for the unborn is by far his greatest.

    As a nation, we need to get down on our knees and pray for forgiveness, repent and cease this barbaric practice. If we could only return to the faith of our founding fathers, oh what could we accomplish?

    Trump came forward and ran for president because he couldn’t take it anymore the direction
    in our country was heading. What other President or leader has accomplished as much as
    Trump? Is he perfect? No! Does he have some rough edges? Indeed!

    Trump in showing and demonstrating concern for the unborn reveals a “high degree” of his sound character.
