On Friday, January 24, President Donald Trump made history by becoming the first sitting President of the United States to address the March for Life in person.
At the National Mall, the President said, “All of us here today understand an eternal truth: Every child is a precious and sacred gift from God. Together, we must protect, cherish, and defend the dignity and sanctity of every human life… When we see the image of a baby in the womb, we glimpse the majesty of God’s creation. When we hold a newborn in our arms, we know the endless love that each child brings to a family. When we watch a child grow, we see the splendor that radiates from each human soul.”
The President added, “‘Young people are the heart of the March for Life and it’s your generation that is making America the pro-family, pro-life nation.’”
New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms applauds President Trump’s words and his decision to participate in the March for Life. We also applaud his administration’s pro-life actions, including the restoration and strengthening of the Mexico City Policy and the creation of the Protect Life Rule. We continue to work and pray for the day when the scourge of abortion will end and our nation will truly live up to its life-affirming ideals.
