President Donald Trump on Friday will become the first president to attend the March for Life when he speaks at the annual march and rally that gathers anti-abortion supporters from across the country in the nation's capital.(CNN) The march aligns with the week of the 47th anniversary of Roe v. Wade this year, as per tradition, in an anti-abortion response to the landmark 1973 Supreme Court case that legalized abortion nationwide. The event was founded in 1974 by anti-abortion activist Nellie Gray, and typically attracts about 100,000 participants hailing from across the country. The plan is to continue the event until Roe is overturned, according to the march's organizers.Trump will be the first president to attend the march, according to March for Life President Jeanne Mancini, and a news release for the event said that Trump will speak at the event. Trump was also the first president to speak at the march via satellite feed when he addressed participants in the 2018 march.The administration has consistently worked to regulate or restrict abortion access since Trump assumed office. Trump has reinstated a ban on US government funding for international non-governmental organizations that perform or promote abortions, appointed anti-abortion judges and opposed abortions later in pregnancy. The Department of Health and Human Services has also advanced multiple measures to regulate or restrict abortion access, some with the professed aim of protecting health care providers' religious freedom, during his tenure.The Trump campaign will also create another pro-life coalition going into the 2020 election -- as it did in 2016 -- to be helmed again by anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser, the group's national spokeswoman announced on the eve of the march.Read MoreThe Friday event -- themed"Life Empowers: Pro-Life is Pro-Woman" -- will feature a rally on the National Mall at noon followed by a march that concludes at the steps of the Supreme Court. House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, a Louisiana Republican, and GOP Rep. Chris Smith of New Jersey also are slated to speak at the march.The march has enjoyed support from multiple Republican administrations in the past and Trump's has been no different. In 2017, Vice President Mike Pence and White House counselor Kellyanne Conway both spoke at the event, with the vice president doing so again in 2019. Former presidents have made telephone calls in to the march, with both Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush addressing the event via phone.Trump's expected attendance at the march comes on the heels of his return from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, and as the Senate impeachment trial into his conduct regarding Ukraine is underway.

Is he taking a golf cart? I just wonder if, with all his unprotected sexual escapades which continue to this day, he never asked a single woman - all his life - to conduct an abortion. Would be interesting if one of them could come out now and tell their story. Disgusting. I envision a world where every life is celebrated, valued, and protected.

Trump's decision to appear is part of a larger effort to reach out to evangelical Christians, a core section of his conservative base. 🤡 No - it's because POTUS believes in LIFE and to protect the UNBORN..... Looks like that whole separation of church and state thing is going really well
Trump is desperate AF. I don't know why he’s speaking he already has their support. I guess it's for self gratification to the crowd cheer for him. Only people against abortion are people you wouldn't want to f*ck in the first place. ~ Carlin Pro-LIFE Disgusting! He really is a cun* ... What’s the over/under on the percentage of time he spends actually speaking on the topic of abortion? impeach trump
Throwing more red meat at his base while alienating the majority of the country. Yep, that's on brand for sure. Will air his speech? Too bad his orangutan mother wasn’t pro-choice. Well that is his base. Sadly all of them could care less about children after birth.
In Presidential First, Trump Will Attend Anti-Abortion March for LifePresident Trump announced he would make a speech on Friday at the March for Life, an annual rally of anti-abortion demonstrators. No president has personally attended the march in its 47-year history. It seems you are having trouble with the word “pro-life”. In Trump’s case abortion should be made retrospective.
Such a great guy. He will go where crazy, violent people go. GOOD!
Trump to attend anti-abortion March for Life in a presidential firstPresident Trump will attend Friday's March for Life, an annual anti-abortion event in Washington, he announced on Twitter. He'll be the first president to attend the march, according to the organization. Awful I think he looks at every event to see if any past Presidents especially Obama to see if they had anything to do with it. If not he immediately attends or supports it so people will say he’s the only President to ever attend or support that event or cause. After 3 long years in Office why now? He doesn't give a shit he just wants their votes to stay out of prison.
