Trump To Address Anti-Abortion Rally In Person

The Washington Post reports:

President Trump announced Wednesday that he will attend Friday’s March for Life, the annual gathering of antiabortion protesters to commemorate the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court’s landmark abortion decision. While other presidents have addressed the annual rally by phone or sent video greetings, Trump would be the first to speak to the crowd in person.

His appearance was announced on the 47th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, and as the president’s bond with groups opposing abortion grows stronger. Just a few days ago, the antiabortion group Susan B. Anthony List and its affiliated super PAC announced it would spend $52 million to help the president’s reelection and work to protect the Republican majority in the U.S. Senate.

Trump had been pro-choice for most of his life, first publicly changing his stance during a 2011 CPAC appearance that was engineered by the defunct homocon group GOProud.
