The 46th annual March for Life on Friday in Washington promises a diverse lineup of speakers to address tens of thousands of marchers — including two elected pro-life Democrats, an increasing rarity on the national stage.

“I was very upfront when I ran for office. Before I was a Democrat, I was black, a female and pro-life,” Louisiana state Rep. Katrina R. Jackson told The Washington Times. “I don’t even see this issue in a political lens.”

The article goes on to state the following:

U.S. Rep. Daniel Lipinski of Illinois knows how rare his views on abortion are among fellow Democrats. He won a bruising primary in March in his Chicago district against a liberal challenger who had received more than $3 million in donations from pro-choice causes.

“Certainly, inside Washington, you don’t find pro-life Democrats,” Mr. Lipinksi told The Times. “But about 30 percent of Democratic voters identify themselves as pro-life. And it is a political mistake if the Democratic Party is not welcoming of pro-life candidates and voters.”

Ms. Jackson and Mr. Lipinski are featured speakers for Friday’s rally in downtown Washington. Other speakers include Alveda King, a niece of Martin Luther King Jr. and director of Civil Rights for the Unborn; Ben Shapiro, editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire; and Archbishop Joseph Naumann, chairman of the pro-life activities panel of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
