Thousands of men and women from around the country are expected in the nation's capital to protest the Supreme Court's landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which guaranteed a woman's constitutional right to an abortion.
President Trump will be addressing the March for Life rally via live satellite, making him the first sitting president to ever address the anti-abortion rights gathering in a live video capacity. Ronald Reagan, George Bush, and George W. Bush addressed the march via recorded remarks or live telephone calls.
