For the first time in U.S. history, a sitting president will address the 47th annual March for Life in person this Friday.

In true Trumpian fashion, President Trump confirmed his attendance at Friday’s march on Twitter:

March for Life President Jeannie Mancini issued a statement announcing his participation:

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.

This year’s theme is Life Empowers: Pro-Life is Pro-Woman.

Other announced speakers for Friday’s rally include Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), First Lady of Louisiana Donna Hutto Edwards, State Senator Katrina Jackson (D-LA), Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), and Elisa Martinez of New Mexico Alliance for Life (also a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate), among many.

One of the benefits of Trump’s appearance is the media simply cannot avoid covering it as they have in the past.

March for Life is annually held in January to mark the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court case legalizing abortion. It’s estimated over 60 million lives have been lost to abortion since being enacted into law.

The Resurgent will monitor President Trump’s speech and other happenings at Friday’s March for Life.
