WASHINGTON, D.C. – The March for Life is excited to announce that House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) will address the 45th annual March for Life, the world’s largest annual pro-life demonstration, in Washington, D.C. on January 19th, 2018.

“It is an honor to have Speaker of the House Paul Ryan address the 45th annual March for Life. Speaker Ryan has been an unwavering champion for the pro-life cause since taking office, and continues to utilize his post to promote the inherent dignity of the human person at all stages of life,” said Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life.

“We are grateful for the significant strides U.S. Congress made in the last year to protect and defend the most innocent among us, and are confident that 2018 will see even more pro-life progress with Speaker Ryan leading the charge.”

House Speaker Ryan will join fellow Congressional colleagues Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA), Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-IL), and Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) in speaking at the March for Life, in addition to Tim Tebow’s mother Pam Tebow, former NFL player Matt Birk and his wife Adrianna, President of the Heritage Foundation Kay Coles James, and Sisters of Life’s Sister Bethany Madonna.

Over one hundred thousand Americans are set to travel from across the country to our nation’s capital for this year’s March for Life, a demonstration that seeks to stand against the greatest human rights violation of our time – abortion-on-demand. The theme of this year’s March for Life is “Love Saves Lives”, embodying the true spirit and mission of the pro-life movement by enlisting the power of love to empower others to choose life.

More speakers and guests to be announced.
