Five years ago—to be generous—would you believe that Donald J. Trump would not only serve as U.S. President, but would almost immediately make his mark as the most decisively pro-life president since Roe v. Wade legalized abortion in 1973?
As unlikely a scenario as that would’ve seemed, it’s pretty hard to deny after Friday, when Trump became the first-ever president to address the 45th annual March For Life—a gathering of hundreds of thousands of pro-life Americans in Washington, D.C.
But every bit as unlikely as Trump’s slew of pro-life policy wins and his comments Friday are the very lives of four women (plus their children) who joined him on stage at the White House Rose Garden.
All four women had faced an unexpected pregnancy, and all four had resisted pressure to abort their babies.
During his address, Trump introduced Marianne Donadio, who chose life during a surprise pregnancy and is now a mother of six and serving at Room at the Inn, a maternity home in Greensboro, North Carolina that has housed over 400 women.
Touching on the 2018 March for Life theme, “Love saves lives,” Trump celebrated Donadio’s courage and sacrifice for women facing unexpected pregnancies and their children.
“[Room at the Inn] has given them hope,” Trump said. “It has shown each woman that she is not forgotten, that she is not alone, and that she really now has a whole family of people who will help her succeed. That hope is the true gift of this incredible movement that brings us together today. It is the gift of friendship, the gift of mentorship, and the gift of encouragement, love and support.”
