Trump becomes first US president to attend anti-abortion rally

Donald Trump says it is a “profound honour” to be the first president to speak at an annual anti-abortion event in Washington.

In his speech at the March for Life rally, the US president said “unborn children have never had a stronger defender in the White House”.

He slammed the Democrats for what he called the most “radical and extreme positions” on abortion from any political party “in possibly centuries”.

“Sadly the far left is actively working to erase our God-given rights, shut own faith-based charities, ban religious believers from the public square and silence Americans who believe in the sanctity of life,” Mr Trump said.

“They are coming after me because I am fighting for you, and… together we are the voice for the voiceless.”
