Kellyanne Conway, Counselor to POTUS Speech – March for Life 2017, Washington, DC

“I am Kellyanne Conway. I am a wife. A mother. A Catholic. Counselor to the President of the United States of America and “Yes” I am pro-life!”

“It is such an honor to stand with the Vice President of the United States and with so many, leaders, families and students from places near and far to defend the unborn. Your courage,  your conviction, your resolve and your faith are impressive and consequential. This is a new day, a new dawn for life.

Why are we here?

What does it mean to stand together to be part of this incredible movement to face criticism, ridicule, laws and lawmakers, that diminish and erode our most basic right and the bedrock of our society. It means to protect and to promote the most precious gift in the world, the gift of life. It means to stand up, stand tall, and stand together against the indifference and the indefensible and to stand up, stand tall and stand together on behalf of babies in the womb.

It is no coincidence that the first right cited in the declaration of independence is the right to life. It is a right, it is not a privilege, it is not a choice, it is God-given, it is unique and it is beautiful.  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 rethink just how fragile and how triumphant human life truly is.  Look at a sonogram, meet a thriving toddler who was born at 24-weeks and who, with proper medical intervention, goes on to have a long and healthy life. Speak to the many women who have faced challenges becoming and remaining pregnant and then welcomed to a miracle. Talk to the couples who are now parents because adoption, not abortion, was the best choice. Every day is a fight for life.  Yet today, is also a celebration of life, it is a time to lift your voices and lift your spirits.

Steps away from here in the White House, A resident and vice president sit at their desks and make decisions for a Nation as they sit there, they stand here with you! Their impassioned defenses of life as presidential candidates showed a nation that courage and commitment can overcome indifference and insults and their decisive actions as president and vice president will further this conversation and this cause.

This is a time of incredible promise for the pro-life production movement. Our message and are positive action must also reach those women who faced unplanned pregnancies, they should know they are not alone they are not judged, they too are protected and cared for and celebrated. So, to the March for Life 2017, allow me to make it very clear:

We hear you, we see you, we respect you, and we look forward to working with you; And, yes we walk we march we run and we endeavour forward with you. God bless you and God bless the United States of America.” Kellyanne Conway
