The March for Life organizers have announced that Vice President Mike Pence will be the first Vice President or President in history to speak at the 2017 March for Life, the world’s largest annual pro-life demonstration, in Washington, DC.
Pence is expected to 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.
“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 expected to travel to DC for the 44th annual March for Life.
