Pro-Life State of the Union: Looking Back and Forward
Tonight, Senators, Representatives, and other distinguished guests will gather in the halls of Congress to hear President Trump deliver his first State of the Union Address.
Earlier today, March for Life President Jeanne Mancini had an op-ed published on the “Pro-Life State of the Union” for Real Clear Politics.

“Just over a week ago, the president made history when he addressed an audience of over 100,000 pro-life Americans via satellite at the 45th annual March for Life. As he noted in his remarks, people from across the nation flooded the streets of Washington, D.C., united by their love, joy and hope for “one beautiful cause: to build a society where life is celebrated, protected, and cherished.”
We’ve seen a great many pro-life victories in the past year, and we are thankful for an Administration and the Members of Congress who stand for life.
It was an honor to have so many of them with us at the 2018 March for Life!
Among those pro-life Members of Congress who joined us this year, we were honored to have Speaker of the House Paul Ryan address the crowds at the March for Life. His remarks also touched on the “pro-life state of the Union.”
“Looking out on this crowd, I can see there are people here of all ages, from all walks of life, but the young people here is what is so inspiring because it tells me this is a movement that is on the rise.
And do you know why the pro-life movement is on the rise? Because truth is on our side. Life begins at conception….
Most importantly, the pro-life movement is on the rise because we have love on our side. We believe every person is worthy of love and dignity. That is why the pro-life movement is on the rise.”
While we can look back on the past year of many pro-life accomplishments, we must also look forward and what we can accomplish this year.
As Jeanne concludes in her op-ed, “We grieve the loss of 60 million Americans whose lives have been ended by abortion since it was legalized in 1973, but we also have great hope for ending this human rights abuse in the future and restoring a culture of life in the United States.”
Thank you for joining with us to work towards a permanent pro-life Union.
