March for Life President: The Only Number I Care About Is The 58 Million Babies Killed By Abortion

While the theme of this year’s March for Life was “The Power of One,” March President Jeanne Mancini seemed keen to take the focus off of crowd numbers and overall statistics and focus on the big picture: 58 million babies have been aborted in the United States since 1973.

Mancini immediately dismissed any comparison to last week’s Women’s March on Washington, saying that the organizers were not concerned with crowd size or likes on social networks. Instead, Mancini said that the only number that she was concerned about was abortion’s death toll over the 44 years since the Roe vs. Wade decision.

“The only number I care about, and the only number that we all care about is – 58 million. Since 1973, 58 million Americans have died as a result of abortion. We stand here today for them – for the little innocent children who have lost their lives to abortion. We also stand here for the mothers who regret their abortion decision.”

Mancini also spoke about the “heroic” act of families who choose to adopt, as well as for women who place their babies for adoption.

To close, Mancini gave a “shout out” to the young people in the crowd, and thanked them for marching.

“Your joy, your love, and your enthusiasm is exactly what our world needs.”
