Liberty University Students Celebrate Life at the March For Life in Washington D.C.
For more than 40 years, thousands upon thousands of people have gathered together in Washington DC in order to demonstrate their support of life in the March for Life. As all walks of life and generations were present during this encouraging event, students from Liberty Universityexpressed excitement to see so many lining the streets of Washington D.C in order to show their support for life.
Commenting on President Trump’s beginning days in Office, one woman describes, “We’ve already seen some incredible pro-life action, not just here in the United States, but having implications that impact elsewhere internationally.” One Liberty University student shares this inspiring reality about overcoming the realities of abortion. “Try to approach this issue the same way William Wilberforce had approached slavery, how Martin Luther King had approached racial tensions even 100 years after slavery had been technically extinguished…” Another student boldly encourages all of those fighting for life by expressing these words, “Don’t be discouraged; because, today, especially our hopes are up, we’re excited, we’re encouraged, we’re standing hand in hand marching together…”
This is such a powerful reality and moment to recognize. Not only are the streets of Washington packed, shoulder-to-shoulder, for miles, but the next generation is embracing the urgency to see abortion ended in their generation. Hear the excitement in their voices as you see the interviews for yourself, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: demonstrators, Pro-Life, celebration, adoption, and hope.

A Look at How the Biased Media Reports the March for Life; and the Reality of What ACTUALLY HAPPENED!
It is so important to not only know what is going on around the world, and in the nation, it is also vitally important to receive an accurate perspective about today’s current events. It’s not enough just to know the news; we have to know God’s news behind the news. We have begun a new season and it’s important that we change our language to walk in agreement with what God is doing. By listening solely to secular media, we are not going to get the full story, or receive a Biblical perspective about what is happening. This couldn’t be more applicable than considering how the mainstream media covered the events of the 2010 March for Life.
Steve Sanborn did an outstanding job when he revealed how the biased media portrayed the 2010 March for Life in such a jaded, and slanted point-of-view. Looking back at the 2009, March, Sanborn points out how their 6-person camera crew looked for any Pro-Choice demonstrators they could find. At the end of the events, they found none. Yet, as Sanborn revealed, “USA Today managed to find a handful”, and it was an image of these “handful” that made the front page image of the events. To accurately report how the events unfolded, March for Life used rooftop cameras to capture the massive crowds snaking through the streets. “Our rooftop cameras captured counted nearly 350,000.” But, that’s not all.
Sanborn continues to point out how the biased media covered the event when he looks at how CNN reported the 2010 March. “CNN gave that same pathetic, handful of pro-aborts, top billing.” The picture that CNN used captured five different pro-abortion demonstrators. Sanborn sarcastically repeats the words of CNN’s response; “As I look at these signs”, asked CNN’s Rick Sanchez, on air, “which side is represented the most? Do we know?” Sanborn brings attention to Newsweek’s reporting that went above and above CNN’s reporting. CNN’s headline? “Who’s Missing at the ‘Roe v. Wade’ Anniversary Demonstrations? Young Women.”
As Sanborn accurately reveals what took place, he allows the crowd to speak freely into the mic and share their own thoughts. When one young woman was asked how many people she perceived to be at the 2010 March for Life, she stated, “I’m not good at estimating, but there are a lot of people.” Her response paints an image that would far outnumber a circle of “five people”. Another young woman shares her response as to why she is part of the March. “I’m marching, because, as a teacher in this generation, we bring our kids every year to be an example, to try and change the world and change the nation.” One young woman expresses her support of life as she holds an adorable toddler in her arms. ‘I was forced to face this choice to decide to choose life and I just want to say that, it’s just very important to value life because it’s the most important thing.’
When we look at how mainstream media covers these events we have to ask why so many people are adamant about killing the population of our nation? When Donald Trump was running for President, he boldly declared how he supported life and did not support abortion. If we don’t honor life in the womb, people will not honor any life, regardless of what age it is. God values ALL life, including the life of the unborn that is still inside the wombs of pregnant mothers at this very moment. Make sure to see the overwhelming crowds of those supporting life, hear the many interviews, and so much more.

“Life is Winning Again!” Vice President Mike Pence Speaks at the 44th March For Life
Since the ruling of Roe v. Wade was passed in the Supreme Court, more than 50 Million children have been aborted from their mother’s womb. In order to sustain a nation, the citizens must not abort their own children. Japanis no longer able to sustain their nation because of a lack of babies. In America, the fight for life has not stopped. The Annual March for Life has continually been demonstrated within the streets of Washington D.C. since its first event in 1974. This year, Vice President, Mike Pence was the first Vice President to ever speak at the event.
It appears that America is truly realizing its Josiah Moment. During the reign of King Josiah, the Word of God was found in the temple and brought to the king. When King Josiah understood that God was angry with Israel because of what was taking place within the nation, he tore his garments and brought about radical reform and brought an end to the very travesties that angered the Lord. Because of King Josiah’s repentance AND response in accordance with his repentance, God relented. This is the very same reality as what has taken place in America. So much innocent bloodshedhas been shed across America. But, the Church cried out to God in humility and repentance; AND God heard our cry.
During the 2016 Presidential Debate, Donald Trump openly declared his stance as Pro-Life and how his views were regarding partial-birth abortion; “If you go with what Hillary is saying, in the 9th month you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby. Now you can say that that’s okay, and Hillary can say that that’s okay, but it’s not okay with me…”
When President of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, spoke about the then approaching 2016 Presidential Elections, she had these comments to say when speaking at a private invitation-only event in Philadelphia. “To be on the stage where we can now talk openly about the fact that abortion is a right that we have to have; and it’s not good to have a right if you can’t exercise it.” She continued to express, “We have to repeal the Hyde Amendment so that everyone has equal rights.” By understanding these realities, we can better understand the clear difference and stance that the current Trump Administrationhas taken as they begin their time in Office.
It is a monumental event as Vice President Mike Pence is not only a guest speaker at the 2017 March for Life, but he is also the first Vice President to speak. The Vice President points out the beauty of this moment as he addresses, “It’s a good day and it’s the best day I’ve ever seen for the March of Life in more ways than one.” He also points out how victory is coming to life once again in America. “Because of all of you, and the many thousands who stand with us in marches like this all across the nation, LIFE IS WINNING AGAIN!”
As President Trump began his Presidency, Vice President Pence brings attention to how President Trump responded to the priority of life only days after entering office. “President Trump reinstated the Mexico City Policy to prevent foreign aid from funding organizations that promoted to perform abortions worldwide.” He continued to address, “That’s why this Administration will work with the Congress to end taxpayer funding of abortion and abortion providers, and we will devote those resources to healthcare services to women across America.”
This is such a huge contrast to the direction that America was heading only a handful of months ago. We are Josiah! Now, we must respond in accordance with repentance and continue to see the ending of abortion in America. Now, in the 21st Century, we see the reality of owning another human being, slavery, as incomprehensible. Pray that the eyes of the heart of America would open and awaken to the tragedy of abortion and make the end of abortion a reality, just as the end of slavery was realized in America. Be encouraged as you see these powerful sequence of events that God so mercifully turned around, and so much more.
