President Trump’s White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told an enthusiastic crowd of antiabortion advocates that this is their time to be heard, calling it a “new day, a new dawn for life.”
“Every day is a fight for life, but today is also a celebration of life,” she said to loud cheers. “Steps away from here in the White House, a president and a vice president sit at their desks and make decisions for a nation. As they sit there, they stand here with you.”
The Trump campaign’s “impassioned defense of life showed a nation that courage and commitment can overcome indifference and insults,” she said.
Between the administration’s commitment to the antiabortion movement and advancements in science, Conway said, it was a time of “incredible promise for the pro-life movement.”
“This dismissive notion of out of sight, out of mind, is over. Science and medicine have joined religion and morality in causing many Americans to think how triumphant human life truly is.”
She closed by telling the crowd they can be assured they have the full support of the White House behind them.
