Washington D.C. (January 24, 2020) – For the first time in the history of the United States, a sitting President will address the March for Life. President Trump will be in attendance to speak to the anticipated crowd of hundreds of thousands in support of life.

The recent battle for a “woman’s right to choose” to terminate life has raised controversy in recent years. Proponents of abortion claim that abortion is an absolute right and support aborting a child at full term. Virginia Governor Northam is a supporter of late term abortions including post-birth abortion, what most legal scholars would consider murder. In explaining the medical procedure of an abortion, Northam stated “The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired. And then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.” The “discussion” he refers to would be whether or not to murder the newborn child post-birth.

Opponents of abortion argue that life begins at conception, a view which congressional candidate Roberge holds. “Life begins at conception, it’s incredible that someone would consider murdering a child after it is born if they decided they simply did not want to be a parent.” Our children are our most precious gift. In order to be a society  of equal rights, where we celebrate life, we need to stop using abortion as a form of contraceptive.

Roberge has suggested that the definition of murder needs to be expanded to include unborn children. “How is it that a completely viable fetus can be aborted by a private organization funded by taxpayers even if those taxpayers have a religious or conscientious objection?” Roberge said. Expanding the definition of murder in new legislation is straight forward and would include exceptions for unintentional termination of the child.

The March for Life is an annual event organized to raise awareness of the abortion epidemic in the United States and to celebrate life. A record number of attendees are expected in light of the growing media narrative suggesting that abortion is accepted in society.
