The Washington Post reports:
A year ago, throngs of abortion opponents gathered in Washington for the March for Life on the Mall and to celebrate the promises of a newly sworn-in President Trump — wins they’d been seeking for decades: Defunding Planned Parenthood, permanently banning federal money for abortion, and overturning Roe v. Wade, something he said would happen “automatically” if he got to pick judges he wanted.
On Friday, Trump will address the march from the White House Rose Garden via satellite, according to organizers. But as marchers return for the major annual antiabortion gathering, almost none of the core vows the president made have been fulfilled and there’s no clear sign they’ll be attained soon.
Even so, movement leaders don’t blame the president — they fault Congress — and seem relatively hopeful they’ll advance their movement in 2018 by limiting later-term abortions and expanding exemptions for businesses or people who don’t want to be connected to abortion.
You may recall that one of the top organizers of the March For Life is married (last we heard) to the former Ohio state rep who was busted boning a dude in his office.
