Hundreds of thousands of people have arrived in Washington, D.C., for the March For Life, a yearly event to promote life and urge an end to Roe v Wade. Vice President Mike Pence will make history as the first sitting VP to speak live at the event. President Donald Trump tweeted his support of the march Friday.

The mall was filled with men and women of all ages, showing their support for the sanctity of life.

Prior to the march, influential members of the pro-life movement addressed the crowd.

Rep. Mia Love’s (R-UT) speech was one of the more powerful moments of the day:

Each living child carries with him or her the potential for greatness. A child born today may become a doctor that cures cancer or Alzheimer’s. That child may be the astronaut that takes the world to Mars for a CEO that leads a global business. That child may become a friend that saves appear from suicide or a mom who strengthens her family, volunteers and eradicate hunger, or a teacher who inspires a struggling student. Every time we kill a child through abortion, we kill our potential.

Every time we kill a child, all of us suffer. We lose a little of ourselves and a whole lot of our future. We strip a child from their god-given potential when we, as a society, except abortion as health care. My fellow Americans, we cannot accept what might have been. We won’t know what might have been if we allow an organization to convince our pregnant women that they have no choice but to abort the life and the potential within them.

We cannot accept what might have been. We will not know what might’ve been when an organization lives to live from women empowered so they can profit. They prefer for women to be victims because they know that I truly empowered woman profits herself, her community, and everyone she touches. We cannot accept what might’ve been.

When those organizations that profit allow our children in the inner cities to feel that they can only be empowered with a life by ending a life, no, we will not accept that. We will not accept what might’ve been.

Vice President Pence became the first sitting VP to address the marchers in 44 years:
