As we get used to expecting the unexpected, President Trump shines the spotlight on today's March for Life in Washington, D.C.

At the top of his first 100 days, the man of the hour points out that the crowd may be bigger than reported because that the media doesn’t give much air time to the annual event.

Every year for the last 43 years anti-abortion activists have convened on Washington, D.C. to march for life in protest for all the babies being aborted in America and around the world.

This yearly March for Life gathering occurs each January on or about the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade — Jan. 22, 1973.

Ironically, I was born on Jan. 22, 1951. So this "for such a time as this" Kairos moment is personal for me in many ways, including my post abortive testimony.

During previous years, the march coverage has been sparse to say the least.

Historically the coverage has been unfavorable, casting the participants in a less than significant light. Added to the slights is the tendency underestimate the crowd size, the tens of thousands often gathering in inclement weather.

However, there is a dramatic shift of events this year. In a recent interview with ABC’s David Muir, President Donald Trump was asked about last week's Women’s March (which received a lot of media coverage).

It's important to note that participation of anti-abortion women were shunned at that event.

It’s actually refreshing to have a president in office who supports the sanctity of life and is willing to speak the truth and expects the media called-out for not doing the same.

From our vantage point, the anti-abortion movement is not asking the media to choose our side over another. We just want fair and balanced coverage, coverage of the truth.

I'm in Washington, D.C. for two days for prayer services tonight and in the morning. Please join us, and you can also March today actually, and virtually on live stream on EWTN — Global Catholic Television Network.

Finally, if you can’t be here, please pray for all who will be marching for life.
