As was widely reported Friday, Donald Trump became the first president to address the March for Life in person in its 47-year history.

And, he did so before what was obviously one of the largest crowds descending on Washington for the annual rally of abortion opponents.

“We’re here for a very simple reason,” he told the cheering crowd in Washington, “to defend the right of every child, born and unborn, to fulfill their God-given potential.”

Declaring that “nearly every top Democrat in Congress now supports taxpayer-funded abortion, right up until the moment of birth,” Trump left little doubt he was going to use the issue in the upcoming campaign.

“Most pro-life president ever,” proclaimed one of the banners carried by marchers.  Another sign read, “Social justice begins in the womb.” 

“I saw the first president to speak to us and it’s wonderful,” gushed Agnes Trzesniowski of Chester, Pennsylvania. “With him, we finally have a chance.”

By that, Trzesniowski meant that with 50-plus appointments to the federal judiciary made by Trump, “we are close to repealing Roe v. Wade. That's the 1973 Supreme Court decision that in effect legalized abortion nationwide and gave rise to the annual pro-life march.

Fellow marchers Steve and Margaret Maurer of Leavittsville, Ohio, heartily agreed.  As recently retired businessman Steve put it: “It is so nice to have a president who says what he means.  He really touched the crowd when he said at the end of his remarks, ‘I love you.’” 

As much as the marchers expressed enthusiasm over the president who voiced their agenda, they also dismissed the ongoing impeachment proceedings against him.

“There are frequencies of good here and frequencies of evil,” said Tom Crimi of Nazareth, Pennsylvania, a veteran of numerous Marches for Life, when asked about the impeachment.

A father of five girls and one boy, Crimi said he and his family “are praying for President Trump and his family every night.”

Harry Scherer, a sophomore at Mount St. Mary’s College University in Emmitsburg, Maryland, said he felt “a lot of energy from the president’s speech and it came from his heart.”

Regarding impeachment, Scherer simply smiled and said, “We’ll see him here next year.”
