March For Life Live Stream: Watch Online
The March for Life, an annual rally protesting abortion, is being held in Washington D.C. on Friday, and Gossip Cop has a live stream available online. Watch it below.
The event has taken place every year since 1974, following the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973 when the Supreme Court ruled abortion legal. Thousands of anti-abortion activists march on Washington around the anniversary of the ruling to try and have it overturned. This year’s rally comes just one week after the inauguration of President Donald Trump, who took a pro-life platform during his campaign.
Vice President Mike Pence and Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, are expected to speak at the event. Trump was initially expected to make a phone call to marchers, but that plan has reportedly been scrapped. In the past, Presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush had called in to address the attendees.
According to the event’s official website, “The March for Life began in Washington, DC, as a small demonstration and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world.” The site continues, “The March for Life is a peaceful demonstration to share the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, legalized abortion on demand.” Watch the March for Life in the live stream below.
