President-elect Donald Trump’s top aide, Kellyanne Conway, will speak at the 43rd annual March for Life on January 27.
According to The Hill, this march is one of the largest anti-abortion protests in the U.S., and is held around the anniversary of the decision in the 1973 Supreme Court case, Roe v. Wade.
The march will start at the National Mall and will end at the Supreme Court.
“We are thrilled to have Kellyanne Conway speak at this year’s March for Life. As the first female to run a successful presidential campaign and as a steadfast advocate for life and family issues, Kellyanne beautifully embodies the 2017 March for Life’s theme, ‘The Power of One,’” March for Life President Jeanne Mancini said in a statement.
“It is our hope that this year’s March for Life will encourage each of us to seek and fulfill our unique mission to the best of our ability because only in doing so we will collectively build a culture of life in the U.S. — a culture where abortion is unthinkable,” Mancini added.
Conway speaking at this event is a sign that the incoming administration intends to enact a pro-life agenda.
Trump is expected to appoint pro-life justices to the Supreme Court, and has vowed to cut funding to Planned Parenthood.
It is unknown at this time if the President-elect, Vice President-elect, or other top members of the incoming administration will also make an appearance at this event.
