Just days after the 45th annual March for Life, where thousands of pro-life activists marched from the National Mall in D.C. to the Supreme Court, Americans across the country are celebrating the National Sanctity of Human Life Day.
Ronald Reagan began the tradition of celebrating a National Sanctity of Human Life Day, and although Obama has always denied its celebration, Trump, for the first time in eight years, has once again officially declared the holiday.
Trump also became the first ever sitting U.S president to address the March for Life, in a live stream from the White House. In his address, the President made it very clear that he would be working on ensuring the legality of standard abortions in the U.S, would become much more stringent, as he commended the hundreds of thousands of pro-life activists standing on the National Mall.
The March for Life itself had many speakers ranging from notable heads of pro-Life organizations, religious figures, and congressmen/women, to figures like Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.
The long weekend filled with pro-life celebrations, though, was most notably kicked off early in the morning on Friday the 20th of January, after the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act was passed in the house. The bill would require doctors to provide medical care to a fetus who is born alive during an abortion or attempted abortion procedure.
Americans, though, were not the only nation to celebrate life this past weekend. In France this past Sunday, 40,000 people came out to protest legalized abortions in their own March for Life. Yet abortion regulations in France are very strict, with abortions after 12 weeks and pregnancy being outlawed, (except for cases where life-threatening pregnancies are involved).
Today, as pro-life Americans reflect on the notable pro-life advancements made this past weekend while celebrating the day of National Sanctity for Human Life, they do so knowing there is finally a pro-life president in the White House. One who is seemingly willing to fight until the end to ensure the historic Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision 45 years ago is reversed.
