When the president of March for Life, Jeanne Mancini, addressed the crowd, she asked everyone to take their iPhones and document the size of the rally, insisting that the media will try to deny its scope.

Vice President Mike Pence told thousands of abortion opponents gathered in Washington, D.C., on Friday that with President Donald Trump's election, "life is winning again in America".

And I am deeply humbled to be the first Vice President of the United States to ever have the privilege to attend this historic gathering. Impressed and moved by the diverse crowd, Sharon Serratore of Feminists for Life, said, "It's handsome to see, and it's beyond belief how many people we see". Trump is expected to pick a nominee who opposes abortion.

"We are trying to get the people making all the important decisions to make the better one", she said.

Republican majorities in both chambers of Congress have vowed to end federal funding for Planned Parenthood, which provided more than a third of the nation's abortions in 2014. "Sometimes it's really overwhelming because there are so many crowds of people coming in, sometimes it's hard to get around, but it's incredible because there are so many people that come together in support of saving life", said Aiyana Martinez. Photos of Metro Center, taken one hour before the march, showed no signs of human life, born or "unborn".

"When people say Women's rights are not threatened under Trump they R delusional", she tweeted.

It's an event the mainstream mediatries to ignore, so major kudos to Vice President Mike Pence and Kellyanne Conway, senior counselor to President Donald Trump, for delivering keynote addresses.
