New Yorkers March for Life

Pro-lifers celebrate a change of political fortunes

By Print Preview

 

At the Scene with First Things by Kevin Gallagher:

"But this year there was some justification for the enthusiasm. For the first time, a vice president visited the march, and the president tweeted his full support. One did not need to be a Trump supporter to applaud the administration’s reiterated promises to defund Planned Parenthood and appoint pro-life justices. For the first time in many of our lifetimes, there’s a clear political path to the end of abortion. And compared to the enormity of abortion, which the Trump administration has pledged to fight, most faults are forgivable. Buffoonery, corruption, arbitrary executive orders—these cannot be worse than the butchery of millions...

At the March for Life, no efforts were made to police the ideology of the marchers. Feminists for Life, some stalwart Democrats for Life, and a pregnant woman carrying the quixotic poster: 'End Abortion: Abolish Capitalism' walked side by side with the #MAGA caps and monarchists. All political differences faded in a cause greater than any government.
