President Donald Trump will address the anti-abortion March for Life on Friday — becoming the first sitting president to address the gathering. (Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush spoke to the group, but they did so by phone.)
Trump will speak to the marchers live via satellite from the White House Rose Garden.
“The President is committed to protecting the life of the unborn, and he is excited to be part of this historic event,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the press corps on Wednesday.
For Trump, his address to the March for Life represents a 180 degree turn on the issue of abortion. Reuters reports that in 1999, Trump said he was “very pro-choice.” He no longer is.
Coverage begins at 12:00 p.m. ET. Watch above, via the White House
