Vice President Mike Pence tells pro-life campaigners that 'life is winning' in America


Mike Pence at March for Life

Today Vice President Mike Pence spoke to hundreds of thousands of pro-life advocates gathered for the annual March for Life on the National Mall. He is the first Vice President to address the March in person. Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway also spoke at today’s March.

Vice President Pence’s remarks reflected his deep roots in the pro-life movement and the Trump-Pence Administration’s commitments to the right to life cause:

“Today, because of all of you and the many thousands who stand with us in marches like this all across the nation, life is winning again in America. That is evident in the election of pro-life majorities in the Congress of the United States of America. But it is no more evident in any way than in the historic election of a president who stands for a stronger America, a more prosperous America, and a president who I proudly say stands for the right to life, President Donald Trump. “President Trump actually asked me to be here with you today. He asked me to thank you for your support – to thank you for your stand for life and for your compassion for the women and children of America.
“At 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue we are in the promise-keeping business. That’s why on Monday President Trump reinstated the Mexico City Policy to prevent foreign aid from funding organizations that promote abortion worldwide. That’s why this administration will work with the Congress to end taxpayer funding of abortion and abortion providers, and we will devote those resources to health care services for women across America. And that’s why next week, President Donald Trump will announce a Supreme Court nominee who will uphold the God-given liberties enshrined in our Constitution.
“I have long believed a society can be judged by how we care for our most vulnerable: the aged, the infirm, the disabled and the unborn.
“Life is winning through the steady advance of science that illuminates when life begins more and more every day. Life is winning through the generosity of millions of adopted families who open their hearts and homes to children in need. Life is winning through the compassion of caregivers and volunteers at crisis pregnancy centers and faith-based organization who minister to women in the cities and towns across this country. And life is winning through the quiet councils between mothers and daughters, grandmothers and granddaughters, between friends across kitchen tables and over coffee at college campuses. The truth is being told. Compassion is overcoming convenience and hope is defeating despair. In a word: life is winning in America because of all of you.”

Kellyanne Conway said:

“It is such an honor to stand with the Vice President of the United States and with so many leaders, families, and students from places near and far to defend the unborn. Your courage, your conviction, your resolve and your faith are impressive and consequential. . . . It is no coincidence that the first right stated in the Declaration of Independence is the right to life. It is not a privilege. It is not a choice. It is God-given. . . . This is a new day, a new dawn for life. . . . To the March for Life 2017, allow me to make it very clear: we hear you, we see you, we respect you, and we look forward to working with you. And, yes, we walk, we march, we run, and we endeavor forward with you.”

Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser, onsite at the March for Life, offered the following comment in response:

“Today’s pro-life march is a very clear and unified call to protect unborn children and mothers. It comes from a diverse group: conservative, liberal, young, old, believers, non-believers. It grew organically over decades out of frustration with the Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton mandate of abortion on-demand, up until birth. The March for Life is not a singular burst of energy. It is a consistent and persistent insistence that our government live up to our nation’s promises to the vulnerable and those who live in the shadows.

“We are so proud of our friends and longtime allies Vice President Pence and presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway. Being pro-life and speaking out for the voiceless is part of their core beings. Their leadership in the White House is an outward sign of the strength of the pro-life movement. It is why pro-life grassroots nationwide worked so hard to elect this administration. Together, we are in position to make great gains, but only if we see the mission through. President Trump has made four commitments to the pro-life movement but all require the continued involvement of activists across the country, calling on their representatives and Senators, to make it happen. The mandate laid out at the election must continually be repeated.”
