This. Is. Fantastic. Perhaps it will force the Media (D) to cover the March For Life for more than a few seconds.
President Trump will be the first ever sitting President to address the March For Life. Last year, Vice President Pence made history as the highest-ranking member of the government to ever attend the March For Life. And still, the Media (D) barely covered it.
This year, perhaps with President Trump’s address to the vast Pro-Life crowd, the Media (D) that hangs on his every tweet will be forced to report on it.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders made the announcement on Wednesday:
The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro, no fan of President Trump, wrote:
This is a moral move for Trump – Roe v. Wade, decided in 1973, is not only one of the worst legal decisions in American history, but one of the most immoral. Abortions have been declining markedly across the United States since their heyday in the 1990s; in 1990, for example, the Centers for Disease Control reported 1.4 million abortions, while in 2013, that number was 644,435, less than half. The American people have also become significantly more pro-life over the decades, thanks to the hard work of the pro-life movement.
Speaking at the March for Life is also a smart political move for Trump – it’s a low cost way to reassure his base that he still maintains their priorities, especially in light of new reports regarding his sexual profligacy while married. Evangelical Christians have been Trump’s most solid supporters, and they will likely continue to do so if he speaks out strongly against abortion, despite his checkered history on the issue.
There’s little doubt the media will savage Trump for speaking at the March For Life – they’ll suggest that he’s a sexist, since the media routinely conflate protection of the unborn with hatred of women, a nonsensical and deeply disgusting conflation. But that may be good for Trump, too: most Americans don’t see pro-lifers as sexist at root, and pro-lifers certainly won’t stand for such an insulting proposition.

Shapiro got it bang on.
But here’s why President Trump addressing the crowd is so important. Although more Americans are shifting their position on abortion, the left still structures this issue as a binary narrative of pro-woman or anti-woman. They don’t ever address the issue of the child’s life at all.
The Left’s partners in crime, the Media (D), is complicit in the cover-up of the massive Pro-Life movement. It’s expected that 100,000 people will show up for the Washington D.C. March For Life.
Newsbusters conducted a 5-year study on the Media (D)’s coverage of the March For Life and here’s what they found.
During their morning and evening news shows for the past five years, the broadcast networks have offered fewer than 24 minutes to the March for Life. To put that in perspective, the three networks spent more than three times that on the Women’s March in 2017 alone.
If you’re not quite grasping that, here’s a chart:
What’s worse is that the vast majority of that coverage was just last year when Vice President Pence attended.
Abortion is one of the most controversial issues facing America, yet from 2013 to 2017, ABC, CBS and NBC combined have spent a mere 23 minutes, 45 seconds on the March for Life during their news shows.
Most of that coverage, 21 minutes, 52 seconds of it, came during last year’s March for Life in 2017. That was largely due to President Donald Trump’s influence. Trump, who had promised to appoint a pro-life Supreme Court justice, sent Vice President Mike Pence and White House counselor Kellyanne Conway to address the march. He also, in an interview with ABC anchor David Muir just days before the event, called out the media for ignoring the march in years prior.
Again, here’s another visual:
But now that President Trump will be attending, there’s hope.
“Over the past year, the Trump administration has significantly advanced pro-life policy, and it is with great confidence that, under his leadership, we expect to see other pro-life achievements in the years to come,” Jeanne Mancini, the March for Life president, announced in a statement Wednesday. “We welcome our 45th President, Donald Trump, to the 45th annual March for Life.”
But that’s just the start of what makes this year’s march newsworthy.
Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, is under federal investigation by the Justice Department following the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) videos that exposed the trafficking of aborted baby parts. CMP released further footage in 2017, including one video where a Planned Parenthood representative implied that they kill baby survivors of abortion. Beginning in 2015, those videos sparked a rallying cry to defund Planned Parenthood – a discussion that continued through 2017.
Americans’ minds are being changed about abortion and they’re starting to realize exactly what it is.
In all, the taxpayer-funded abortion giant has ended the lives of more than 7.6 million babies since Roe v. Wade. But there’s hope: Even though one in three babies are aborted in this country’s most populated city, the national abortion rate is decreasing.
And polls also show the abortion industry is out of touch with the American public. A new January 17 Marist/Knights of Columbus poll found that Americans (three out of four) overwhelmingly support restrictions on abortion. And nearly half of Americans call abortion “morally wrong,” according to Gallup findings released last summer.
Perhaps soon the mass-slaughter of innocents will be a thing of the past. And it could all be because we have a badass President with
the balls courage to shine the light of Truth on tough issues like abortion. How will the Pharisaical Never-Trumpkin Evangelicals live with that truth bomb?
