The topic of discussion for this Constitution Monday is the fact that life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is the right of all Americans, born and unborn. The March for Life drew tens of thousands of people to Washington, D.C., on Friday. This annual march is in its 47th year and seems to be drawing more young people each year.
Nick Sandmann and four bus loads of students from Covington Catholic High School attended the annual event despite their bad experience last year. Sandmann said that he would not miss the event. Their time in the national’s capital apparently went well this year, but one of the buses was in an accident on the trip home. A car going the wrong way hit the bus head on, and the driver of the car was killed. The bus driver and others were injured. I hope that the students will attend the March for Life without concern for something else going wrong!
This site assembled photos of many of the best signs at the 2020 March for Life. Notice how many young people are holding the signs and how many of them could have been victims of abortion!
President Donald Trump spoke at the 2020 March for Life. He is the first President of the United States to attend the march in person. He and other Presidents spoke by video or phone at previous marches. This site carries the President’s speech at the event. He welcomed “tens of thousands” of high school and college students to the march. “Young people are the heart of the March for Life. It is your generation that is making America a pro-family, pro-life country.” The life movement is led by strong women, amazing faith leaders, and brave students who carry on the legacy of pioneers before us to raise the conscience of a nation and uphold the rights of our citizens. You embrace mothers with care and compassion. You are powered by prayer and motivated by pure, unselfish love…. Every child is a sacred gift of life.”
