See y'all at the March!
(Life News) - Vice President Mike Pence will speak at the March for Life on Friday — making him the first vice president ever to address the pro-life event in person.
That’s according to a report in the New York Times — though March for Life has yet to confirm Pence will indeed be on the roster of speakers.
Pence is the former governor of Indiana who has a longtime pro-life position and a lengthy pro-life record putting pro-life legislation into law in that state and voting pro life as a member of Congress.
“Let me be clear: People who know me well know I’m pro-life, and I don’t apologize for it,” he’s said previously. “I want to live to see the day that we put the sanctity of life back at the center of American law, and we send Roe v. Wade to the ash heap of history, where it belongs.”
White House officials confirmed today that Vice President Pence would address the pro-life Marchers. As many as half a million or more pro-life people will gather in the nation’s capital to express their opposition to abortion.
Previously, pro-life presidents including Ronald Reagan and George W Bush spoke to pro-life people attending the March for Life but did so via a phone call. Pence’s in person speach at the pro-life March will no doubt require a ramping up of security at the event — where abortion activists often counter-protest.
The Trump Administration is also sending other officials to the March for Life including senior advisor Kellyanne Conway, a longtime pro-life advocate.
