On Friday, the 2021 March for Life took place “virtually” in Washington, D.C. where a much smaller crowd of pro-life leaders met up for the event.
During the “virtual” portion, which included short speeches from notable pro-life leaders such as Live Action’s Lila Rose, among others, Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) gave an especially poignant rebuke of Joe Biden’s anti-life policies.
“Mr. President, the dream of justice for all cannot be achieved if a whole segment of society is ignored and discriminated against because of where they live: In their mother’s wombs,” he said.
Speaking at the @March_for_Life, Rep. Chris Smith calls out President Biden directly:

Another powerful speech from Rep. Kat Cammack revealed her mother’s struggle with birthing her and her ultimate decision to choose life.
Cammack said, “Before I was born, my mother suffered a devastating stroke just before giving birth to my sister.”
“Doctors told her then that future pregnancies would be extremely high-risk. Years later, when she was pregnant with me, against the urging of her doctors and even family, she did something incredible: she chose life. Her bravery and courage in the face of this very difficult decision led to my passion for standing up for the rights of the innocent and the unborn.”
“Life is sacred. The fights of unborn children are sacred, and this movement to support the right to life is a critical one. I vow to stand up for the millions of innocent lives across this country, and I am proud to stand beside this movement’s passionate and dedicated advocates,” she added.
Biden’s resistance is only growing in Congress, where the U.S. Senate has just received a proposal from multiple pro-life senators to defund Planned Parenthood, among other measures.
