President Trump will become the first president to attend the March for Life

The media love to cover protests and marches...if they're against Trump, as in the case of the shrinking Women's March, or if the people marching can be ridiculed or painted as bogeymen, as was the case with the recent Second Amendment rally in Richmond, Virginia.  The one march that most in the media assiduously avoid reporting about, or report only in minimalist terms, is the annual March for Life.

This is true even though the March for Life is one of the largest marches Washington, D.C. sees on a yearly basis.  For example, in 2019, while the organizers expected 100,000 people, an estimated 200,000–300,000 might have shown up.  By contrast, the most recent Women's March on D.C. had between 6,000 and 10,000 attendees.

Indeed, the only time in recent years that the mainstream media got really excited about the March for Life occurred last year, when various media figures engaged in a brutal beat-down against Nick Sandmann, the 16-year-old boy who smiled nervously as an activist got in his face and beat a drum at him.  Because Sandmann was in D.C. to attend the march with his classmates from a Catholic high school in Kentucky, and because he wore a MAGA hat, the media went into hysterics about his smirk and his "punchable" face.

Sandmann filed massive suits against the various media outlets, and CNN has already settled for a rumored $25 million.  That's a lot of MAGA hats.

This year, though, the media will be hard pressed to ignore the March for Life, because this year, President Trump will attend in person:

President Donald Trump will address the March for Life on Friday in live remarks to hundreds of thousands of pro-life people attending the event from across the country. He will be the first president ever to attend the March for Life in person, having addressed the March via video previously.

 

 

Trump's presence means that, in January 2020, Americans will see and be able to compare the media's horror and outrage at both the gun rally and the March for Life.  A couple of statistics are therefore in order:

According to Pediatrics, guns kill an average of 3.5 American children every day, whether the guns are fired intentionally or accidentally.  (As a regular reader of the Daily Mail, which tends to cover such stories, that seems a bit high, but there's some indication that the study factored in older children, AKA teens, who live in crime-ridden, gun-controlled Leftist cities.)

Meanwhile, according to Planned Parenthood's 2019 annual report, the "women's health care provider" performed 345,672 "abortion services" in a year, which equals 947.1 intentional baby killings every day.  Relative to minority representation in the population, many more minority babies than white babies were aborted.

President Trump, meanwhile, has proven to be an extraordinarily pro-life president:

"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," [Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life] said.

The administration's latest pro-life initiative comes from the Department of Justice:

The Trump Department of Justice has filed pleadings in federal court arguing that the unborn have federal civil rights that must be protected. The Justice Department Civil Rights Division yesterday filed a brief arguing that Ohio's law prohibiting abortions based on the presence of Down syndrome is constitutional.

The Ohio law prohibits abortion providers from performing abortions when the provider has knowledge that the unborn child is being targeted for an abortion because of Down syndrome.

Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband heads the Civil Rights Division that filed the brief. Dreiband said, "Ohio's Antidiscrimination Law affirms that people with Down syndrome have lives worth living and protecting."

The Justice Department brief specifically says that the unborn with disabilities are worthy of civil rights protections and of life. The brief argues that the unborn should not have life terminated because they have a disability.

Iceland, incidentally, through targeted abortions, has almost wiped out Down syndrome.

One can expect snarky coverage from the media about President Trump's speech, but that won't matter.  What will matter is that the same media that follow Trump around like a cat chasing a laser point on the carpet will make all Americans aware that ordinary people, people just like themselves, are saying industrial-scale abortion is a moral wrong.
