His powerful words encouraged and lifted up his audience as he stood for life with thousands of marchers.
Here’s an excerpt from his powerful speech:
“Just this week, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that pro-lifers were not in line with ‘where we are as a society.'”
“Well, you know what? Maybe they’re right. Maybe we, today, here, are not in line with society.
“We do live in a time where the Democratic Party has embraced abortion as a sacrament. And by the way, where many in the Republican Party spent years pledging to defund Planned Parenthood and didn’t do it when they were given the power to do so.
“We live in a time when pro-life nations around the world are loosening their own restrictions on the killing of the unborn.
“So perhaps we are out of line with the rest of society, to which I say, GOOD.
“So were the abolitionists. So were the Civil Rights marchers. So were the martyrs in Rome and the Jews in Egypt.
“Righteousness doesn’t have to be popular, it just has to be righteous.
“And so we march. We march for those who can’t. The media will ignore us because they always do. They’ll cover other marches—you know, the five people who show up tomorrow.
“They’ll cover the marches they prefer politically. They bet that the tens of thousands of us who brave the cold every year to stand here with the souls of the future America will be forgotten.
“We will not be forgotten!
“Our children slaughtered over the decades remember– they look at us from above and they know that they meant something. That they do mean something so long as we keep them in our minds and in our hearts.
“Our children standing here with us, the ones who are here today, they will remember too. They will remember and they will march until they no longer have to march.
“Our children, yet unborn will remember, and they will thank us in their prayers.
“And most of all, God, the God who built and preserves nations, who brings life and maintains it, who stands with those who suffer most at the hands of evil—he will remember us too.
“He will remember America and he will bless her. God will bless us because we are the guardians of his most precious creations.
“We stand between America and the darkness, and we will march until that darkness is banished forever and all of our children can stand together in the sunlight”
