Kellyanne Conway to Speak at 'March for Life'

"I do believe that God placed me in this position"

The very pro-life and very Catholic Kellyanne Conway, who will also serve as Trump's counselor, will be speaking at the 43rd Annual March for Life this month.

"But women can't be pro-life," feminists say. Mrs. Conway would very much like to disagree.  

"We are thrilled to have Kellyanne Conway speak at this year's March for Life," said Jeanne Mancini, head of the March for Life. "As the first female to run a successful presidential campaign and as a steadfast advocate for life and family issues, Kellyanne beautifully embodies the 2017 March for Life's theme, 'The Power of One.'"

Conway has consistently maintained that her Catholic faith plays a deeply important role in her politics, telling the Washington Examiner on Monday it dictates her actions "minute-by-minute."

"Faith plays a minute-by-minute part of my life," she said. "It is constant. This is consequential, this is exciting and historic in its own way, but it is nothing compared to the universe in which we live, the God that I worship, and the totality of our lives."

"I do believe that God placed me in this position at this time to do my small part to create an environment to allow Mr. Trump to flourish and to help to create a campaign structure with our fabulous team."

Her record also speaks well of her sincerity in the pro-life movement. According to Kristen Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America (SFLA), she has been a prominent fixture in it.

"Kellyanne has been a prominent fixture in the conservative and pro-life movement for years, lending her wisdom and expertise to the good causes of many candidates and organizations," she said. "She understands the value of protecting innocent life and communicating that message effectively."

Deal Hudson, founder of Trump's Catholic advisory group, said he felt "thrilled" to hear Kellyanne Conway would be part of the Trump White House. 

"I'm thrilled that a Catholic mother of four, who has defended innocent life her entire career, would now be helping to shape presidential decision-making," he said. 

We're thrilled too. Kellyanne Conway all the way.
