It’s great news that Vice-President Mike Pence is going to speak at the March for Life event in Washington DC tomorrow. This will mark the first time since the march began that a President or Vice-President will speak at the event in person. Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush have done so, but only remotely.
From the NY Times:
Vice President Mike Pence will speak on Friday to a gathering of anti-abortion activists on the National Mall, a sign of the movement’s new and growing authority in a government now dominated by Republicans.
The organizers for the event, the March for Life, had extended invitations to President Trump and Mr. Pence. A senior White House official confirmed that Mr. Pence would address the marchers.
Mr. Pence’s appearance will come just a few days before Mr. Trump is expected to reveal his nominee for the Supreme Court seat left vacant by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia last year. Mr. Trump has said his pick, like Mr. Scalia, would oppose abortion rights, one of several promises he has made to roll back legal protections for the procedure.
Of course, the NY Times is going to make it all scary by taking “follow the constitution” and turn it into “oppose abortion rights.”
The panic on the left will only be exacerbated by Pence’s appearance. The good news is, this is a signal from the Trump administration they are prepared to dig in and fight on the pro-life side of the abortion debate.
