VP Pence to Speak at March for Life
It's official, Vice President Mike Pence will be speaking at tomorrow's highly anticipated March for Life, the 44th annual Pro-Life event that has become the largest Pro-Life event in the world.
Pence met with leaders of March for Life tonight and tweeted regarding the news that he will be speaking Friday at the main event.
"Honored to meet with Pro-Life leaders in my office tonight. Just told them I look forward to addressing National @March_for_Life on Friday."
Pence will join other prominent pro-life figures, including top-ranking White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, Archbishop of New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson, former Planned Parenthood Director and founder of ‘And Then There Were None’ Abby Johnson, Mexican Telenovela star Karyme Lozano, author and radio host Eric Metaxas, and Bishop Vincent Matthews of the Church of God in Christ, who advocates for adoption in the African-American community, at the March for Life rally on the National Mall on January 27th, 2017.
“We are very pleased to welcome Vice President Mike Pence to speak at this year’s March for Life. His appearance marks a historic moment for the pro-life movement as Vice President Pence will be the first Vice President or President to speak at the March for Life,” said Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life.
“Vice President Pence has been a friend and champion of the pro-life cause his entire career. Pro-life leaders, activists, volunteers and marchers will be thrilled to hear from Vice President Pence and are bound to leave the March for Life even more energized than when they came,” Mancini noted. “Our theme this year is the “Power of One,” highlighting how every individual has the ability to make a difference in the cause of life. As a former Member of Congress, Governor and now Vice President, Mr. Pence has demonstrated throughout his entire career how one person can, indeed, make a difference in the ultimate human right — the right to life.”
Tens of thousands of Americans are set to travel from across the nation to D.C. for this year’s March for Life, which seeks to promote the dignity of every human life and to stand against the greatest human rights violation of our time – abortion-on-demand.
