For the first time in history, a US president will attend, in person, and speak at the annual March for Life that is happening in Washington DC today.

The President is joining hundreds of thousands in support of the sanctity of life.

Be informed.

The President "Marches" for life.


Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life, says, "We are deeply honored to welcome President Trump to the 47th annual March for Life."

She says,
"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 an protecting the unborn."

She continued,
"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."

President Trump responded with this tweet: "See you on Friday...Big Crowd!



This announcement comes one day after the President declared January 22, the anniversary of Roe v Wade, the Sanctity of Human Life Day.

Sarah Matthews, the Trump campaign deputy press secretary, told The Daily Caller that Trump becoming the first president to ever attend the March for Life in person "is a testament to his commitment to protecting the sanctity of life."

She noted that "In stark contrast, 2020 Democrats continue to embrace extreme abortion policies, including abortion practically up to the moment of birth, or even beyond."

She said, "There can be no doubt that President Trump is the most pro-life President in our nation's history."

Is Trump actually the "most pro-life president in history?


There are hundreds of articles in print, published by writers from the Left, the Right, the middle and even from the atheists and abortion activists who have weighed in on whether they think Trump is the most pro-life president in history.

For the most part, they don't think he is---and they really don't like him.

Melinda Henneberger wrote this in USA Today: "Donald Trump is not the Most Pro-Life President ever. He proves the opposite every day."

Yes, Sarah Matthews works for the President, but Trump is, in fact, considered to be the most pro-life President in history by many veteran pro-life activists.

Here's some of the reasons why:


  • He has reinstated and expanded the ban on foreign aid to abortion-involved groups (including International Planned Parenthood Federation).
  • He has banned groups that commit or refer abortions from Title X family planning funds.
  • Has overturned Obama era regulations that barred states from defunding Planned Parenthood.
  • He has issued rules protecting Americans from being forced to subsidize abortion in government-mandated health insurance plans.
  • He has consistently opposed abortion at the United Nations.
  • He has forcefully denounced abortion publicly---calling attention to Democrats' opposition to anti-infanticide legislation---asking Congress to send him a ban on late-term abortion to sign.
  • He has repeatedly declared publicly that "abortion is not a human right."
  • In his proclamation this week he declared that "every person---the born and the unborn, the poor, the downcast, the disabled, the infirm, and the elderly---has inherent value" and that the US "proudly and strongly reaffirms our commitment to protect the precious gift of life at every stage, from conception to natural death."
  • He promised again this week: "We will never tire of defending innocent life---at home or abroad."


True pro-lifers are looking at his works, not just his words.


In the New Testament, James talks about faith without works being "dead" faith. Most of us know that words can be cheap, actions...a little more costly.

Trump is putting his actions with his words. The public appreciates that. And they agree with him.

Polls show a "dramatic shift" in public attitudes toward abortion.


Several recent polls have shown the public agrees with Trump's position.

A new Marist Poll shows that 70% of Americans support major restrictions on abortion and 55% of Americans would ban abortion after 20 weeks.


Among the restrictions backed by Americans are abortion "only during the first three months of pregnancy" (24%); abortion "only in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother" (26%); abortion "only to save the life of the mother" (11%); and abortion "should never be permitted under any circumstance" (9%).

The poll also showed that only 21% of Americans said that abortion should be "available to a woman any time during her entire pregnancy," while another 9% said it should be allowed, but "only during the first 6 months."

Polling also shows that most Americans want the Court to reinterpret Roe v Wade, either by stopping legalized abortion or by returning the issue to the states.

Although the press will give token coverage of the March for Life today---and they'll debate Trump's motives, pro-life Christians will rejoice, and God will smile.

Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Faithful. Be Prayerful.

  1. For 8 lovely years, America was at relative peace, except for the racist rage and hate of others, underlying the Republican and evangelical movement. In 1979, Jerry Falwell and other false prophets turned the Christian movement and Christ’s sacrifice for all on its head. “Jerry Falwell wasn’t so concerned about moral decline in America. Rather, he wanted to stop Blacks from attending Christian Schools.” The church unfortunately fell in line and have now sold their souls to the Devil Trump, in ungodly worship and submission.
    The Devil Trump offered evangelicals what they coveted deeply, a bite at Trump’s poisonous apple of deception and control over others. Like stopping abortions, even though Trump’s Cult of Christians don’t care about living children being separated from their parents, living in deplorable conditions on the border, complete with unchecked abuses and death. When a woman chooses life and relies on welfare, they degrade the woman and child for their inability to take care of themselves. When a woman is on drugs, they would rather let the child be born addicted and raised in the hell of addiction, with little help for either. In America, where all rights are protected by the Constitution and not by the hypocrisy of evangelicals, women have the right to choose and suffer the consequences. It should not be up to a bunch of male hypocrites, who support our perverted President, to decide what a woman does with her body.
    The second bite stops gay people from having the same rights as everyone else. Even though Pastors commit adultery, priests molest children and 2/3’s of “Christian” men watch porn. Who are they to judge another’s sin, as worse than their own sin?
    The third bite is religious liberty, which really means evangelicals should be able to cross the line between church and state, while expecting other religions to keep their mouths shut and stay out of “their” America. The news media gives the fallen church lots of coverage to perpetrate Trump’s lies, but remnant Christians or those who do not support Trump are forced into silence and ignored. The Red Bluff Daily News does not allow me to use scripture to support my arguments, but the acceptable Christians are allowed to voice their thoughts, with scriptures on the religious page, chosen by the Editor Chip Thompson to support his or the communities believes. A good newspaper should be a place for all to voice their opinions with proper attribution, especially God’s Word. This is a violation of my religious liberty and a violation of my 1st Amendment Right. If Rick Perry, Trump and false prophets can say Trump is the “the “chosen” one, surely I should be able to quote scripture to point out how very wrong and anti-Christian this idea is.
    The black core is greed. Money and economy are more important to evangelicals, then their commitment to Christ. His warnings to those that treasure money and Trump over Christ says believers supporting the man of lawlessness will be rejected by Christ.

    1. It's not supposed to be up to the mother as to whether or not she should kill her son or daughter, not in America or anywhere else. What planet are you from?

  2. In Truth
    Thank you "anonymous” for exposing yourself. Your bitterness, anger, and hate come thru loud and clear. When all of a president’s actions and words are consistent, you present your "opinion" he is lying, however; you have no evidence or tangible argument to support that presumption. To risk a you’re your "sincerity" does not trump truth..EVER.
    Next the only judgment about "sin" that matters is God's judgment. You worship the “opinion” of others while Christians worship the opinion of Christ. If “you” see someone ruining their life and those of others by extension, does your “love” for them compel you to help them see the error of their ways to save them from destruction before it is too late? True Christ-followers are told to "love" ALL others in "action" not only in "words". When true Christians see people who believe a lie ruining their lives and the lives of others through their life styles and endangering their eternal destiny, we are “compelled” by that love speak truth to them and encourage them to seek truth and to open their minds and hearts to that truth. If we do “not” love them, we remain silent or worse yet “endorse” or “encourage” them to continue in their sin. Your words suggest that you judge and hate Christians, but Jesus words regarding sinners were spoken in love..not in hate.
    Regarding abortion...three questions for you only:
    1. Are growing embryos in the womb "Human"?
    2. Are they "alive".
    3. How is it that a person of conscience and integrity can convince themself that intentionally intentionally “ending the life of a healthy living human” is OK if it serves their purpose?
    Again my friend..."truth" has no obligation to "sincerity". Man's truth is “ever-changing”. God's truth is “never-changing.” Which is a foundation upon which to stand and build, and which is simply an unstable temporary rationalization?
    The body of your rant and apparent hatred is clearly driven and fueled by your assumptions about the values of those you are so intent on slandering. In truth...your accusations and assumptions are void of evidence...they are only important to you because you have embraced them in order to justify demonizing those who stand for truth; because truth endangers your self-esteem. This reveals that the “opinion of others about you” determines your self-worth. So..you see those who endanger your self-image of righteousness by speaking truth as a dire threat. True Christians live for the ‘approval’ of Jesus Christ, not that of the masses. A wise man said: “Show me what is the most important thing in your life and I will show you your god.”
    We Christians who read your writings. We will pray for your salvation and for the joy you have as yet been unable to allow into your life. We will pray for your eyes and ears to be "opened" to see and hear truth, while understanding that “real” truth will not always be what satisfies your “desires” or validates your personal “opinions”.

    Truth is a lonely warrior...

  3. I guess I am anonymous, not you. Which right away tells me you are afraid to live by your opinions as yourself. Hiding instead behind anonymous. Yes embryos are babies and all people should council people not to have abortions and offer them real alternatives and help. This does not happen, instead the Christians who real them not to abort, turn around and say "Your on your own now. No help for you. Not everyone in America is a Christian and therefore do not have to abide by your ideas and in the land of the free that includes abortion. The violence shown by "christians" over the years towards providers shows no love. The harsh judgement shown by the right towards the other sinners, negates the hypocrisy shown by the right, especially when it comes to the worship if the Devil Trump. Any kind of perversion by him or church leaders is okay. The woman who has an abortion will be judged by God. He doesn't need the fallen church of hypocrites to do His job. He is able. As long as the church is lead by the Devil Trump, they will remain in a fallen state and will be rejected by Christ. God has a higher expectation of His church than he does of the drug addicted mother, pregnant with a child who will be severely damaged by her through exposure to drugs, molestation and abuse. Wouldn't that child be safer in the arms of Jesus, than in the arms of drug addicted women who doesn't want the child in the first place. Better to do reversible sterilization on those that should not bear children, than to allow conception and stop abortions. We will pray for your salvation and for the joy you have as yet been unable to allow into your life. I will pray for your eyes and ears to be "opened" to see and hear truth, while understanding that “real” truth will not always be what satisfies your “desires” or validates your personal “opinions”. As long as the church supports Trump, they have no moral standing on any issue.

    I was in error...you were not "anonymous". I am anonymous because the LEFT, of which you are a proud member, is judgmental, hateful, vindictive, and seeks to destroy anyone who disagrees with them.

    Clearly your hatred is directed toward "Christians" and it is "Christians" and "President Trump" you rail against. Christians are not the only ones who believe that taking an innocent human life is wrong...but then you know that don't you. Do you honestly believe you can justify the killing of 1,000,000 human beings (3,000/day) in America and 40,000,000 every year world-wide by conjuring up a story about a child that "might" be born with a disability? "Better to be killed than allowed to live with a disability" RIGHT? And it is up to YOU to defend that pathetic rationalization? Are you not aware of those who were born with disabilities who are eternally grateful for being allowed to live?

    You copied my citation to you : "We will pray for your salvation and for the joy you have as yet been unable to allow into your life. I will pray for your eyes and ears to be "opened" to see and hear truth, while understanding that “real” truth will not always be what satisfies your “desires” or validates your personal “opinions”."

    Clearly that got under your skin, and that is telling!

    Who then do you pray to? Do you "pray" to a God you believe will reward and exonerate you for hating and demeaning Christians, hating and demeaning your President who God said in His word that He put in power, and fighting for the practice of allowing the murder of the most innocent and defenseless humans of all on a scale that dwarfs all deaths in war throughout history? Have you managed to convince yourself you could actually "expect" Jesus to agree with you and say "Well done good and faithful servant"?

    If you "truly" believe this I caution you to consider the possibility that you have embraced a "delusion". A delusion promoted by the very enemy of God and Jesus Christ.

    Are you aware that the commandment of God that is improperly translated as "Do not Kill" is actually properly translated "Do not commit murder"? Is not the intentional killing of a living human being "murderer"? Can you somehow twist a "Yes" into a "NO" to answer that very basic question.

    The nasty, demeaning, cruel and embarrassing adjectives you chose to use in your first letter, and fewer in the second letter when referring to those you hate are revealing. Slander and mockery are clearly not of God, but have been identified in His Word as signs of the end times to be prevalent in those who

    2 Tim 3:1-5
    3:1 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God- 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power.

    I do pray your eyes and ears will be open my friend. I do not believe you are evil, but I believe you have been convinced of a lie and embraced evil. In truth...my opinion of you is irrelevant. It is the opinion of Jesus Christ that is relevant.

    Blessings to you...
