President Trump became the first president to address the ‘March for Life’ in Washington D.C.
He spoke via satellite from the Rose Garden Friday morning after an introduction by Vice President Mike Pence.
The president emphasized his commitment to protecting religious freedom rights for doctors and nurses, and taking Medicaid funding away from abortion clinics that break the law.
The annual event is the largest pro-life rally in the country, and this years theme is “Love Saves Lives.”
Participants will march from the capital to the Supreme Court in protest of Roe v. Wade.
