The March for Life announced today that on January 24, 2020, President Trump will become the first President of the United States in history to address the massive crowds at the March for Life in person. Jeanne Mancini, president of the March for Life, announced in a statement today:
We are deeply honored to welcome President Trump to the 47th annual March for Life. He will be the first president in history to attend and we are so excited for him to experience in person how passionate our marchers are about life and protecting the unborn.
From the appointment of pro-life judges and federal workers, to cutting taxpayer funding for abortions here and abroad, to calling for an end to late-term abortions, President Trump and his Administration have been consistent champions for life and their support for the March for Life has been unwavering.
We are grateful for all these pro-life accomplishments and look forward to gaining more victories for life in the future.
The March for Life is honored to announce @realDonaldTrump will be the first U.S. President to speak at the March for Life Rally. Thank you, President Trump, for being a voice for the unborn and continuously working to build a culture of life. https://t.co/lojZssLeim

President Trump addressed the March for Life crowds from the White House Rose Garden in 2018, and Vice President Mike Pence delivered a speech in person at the massive pro-life event in 2017. President Trump also signed a proclamation this week designating today, January 22nd, the 47th anniversary of the fateful Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion nationwide in the U.S., as National Sanctity of Human Life Day.
He stated in his proclamation, “Every person – the born and unborn, the poor, the downcast, the disabled, the infirm, and the elderly – has inherent value,” he wrote. “Although each journey is different, no life is without worth or is inconsequential; the rights of all people must be defended.”
