The Best Signs at the 45th Annual March for Life

President Donald Trump waves as he boards Air Force One Thursday Jan. 18 2018 in Andrews Air Force Base Md

According to The Hill, the Trump administration sent a letter to state Medicaid directors on the 19th, suggesting that the Obama-era guidance reflected the previous administration's "effort to favor abortion rights". This was the first year either of the 16-year-olds went to the march.

Baker, who lives in Mount Zion, said the march was "eye-opening" and he was inspired by the amount of like-minded people who came out to participate.

The Department of Health and Human Services spelled out plans to protect medical providers who refuse to perform procedures such as abortions because of moral or religious scruples.

Trump has failed to deliver on promises to strip Planned Parenthood of federal funding or permanently ban taxpayer dollars from being used for abortions.

In a statement, Planned Parenthood vice president Dawn Laguens said, "They couldn't get the votes to pass it in Congress, so now they are pushing states to try and block care at Planned Parenthood".

Texas had previously tried to block Planned Parenthood from Medicaid reimbursements but was stopped by the Obama administration.

"Americans are more and more pro-life".

The White House has advanced several policies through executive orders rather than legislation, starting with an expanded version of the Bush-era Mexico City policy, which bars USA funding to public health organizations that promote abortion overseas and which Trump reinstated upon taking office. But Trump's Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, who supports abortion rights, made the choice easy, Dannenfelser recalled.

Central Illinoisans joined the thousands of anti-abortion activists bolstered by new support from President Donald Trump at the annual March for Life on Friday.

Donald Trump gives his take on Roe v. Wade at the third presidential debate. Today, we grieve the loss of life. The event is meant to pressure the Senate and Congress of the United States to limit access to abortion. "Your efforts over the years, over the decades, standing tirelessly for the sanctity of life, has brought this day about, this year about", he said. Trump also has revived and expanded a ban on sending US aid to groups overseas that provide abortion counseling. Some attendees at the evangelical conference said they would not attend the march in the afternoon, because they didn't even want to hear the president address the crowd.

About 50 demonstrators staged their own rally outside the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum rather than joining the main rally on the National Mall, to protest Trump's address.

"I truly believe, with all of my heart, this is the pro-life generation in America", Pence said.

"Let's put some secular, pro-life, bad-ass feminists up front", she said. Mancini said she thinks the marchers, a lot of them young because of the prevalence of school groups in attendance, should send a message of support to the president.

"Here we are at the 45th year - we never anticipated that we would be here for so long".

Though his record is mixed and a midterm election looms, abortion opponents say they have not felt so optimistic in at least a decade. They'll do what they say, ' " said Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life.
