Facts 

    Today marks the 47th anniversary of the March for Life in Washington D.C. The March for Life is an annual rally of mainly right leaning pro-life activists, originally organized by Nellie Gray in 1974 to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision.  This year’s March was historic as Donald Trump became the first ever sitting president to attend and address the event.   

    Left

    While the majority of the Left generally leans pro-choice (at least under certain circumstances), one of the key speakers headlining this year’s March for Life is the First Lady of Louisiana, Donna Hutto Edwards.  Donna’s husband John Bel Edwards is the Governor of Louisiana and a Democrat.  Other Left-wing outlets and groups consider the March for Life to be an anti-science gathering of “anti-abortion extremists.”  Still others see Trump’s appearance at the March for Life as a calculated political move meant to help him court pro-life voters even as he faces his impeachment trial.   

    RIGHT

    Right-wing, pro-life activists view President Trump’s decision to speak in person at the March for Life as a major victory for their movement.  For the Right, the current dialogue from the Left is deeply troubling.  They bemoan the progression from pro-choice Democrats calling abortion a “necessary evil” to now encouraging women to celebrate their abortions.  In his rally speech, President Trump said, “The far left is actively working to erase our God-given rights,” and “silence Americans who believe in the sanctity of life.” In another victory for his pro-life supporters, Trump’s administration also announced today that it will consider withholding federal funds from California if the state does not drop its requirement that private health insurers provide coverage for abortion.
