Piling into buses, cars and trains, Lehigh Valley residents traveled to the 47th annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., to see President Trump make history. On January 24, Trump became the first U.S. president to appear in person at the march.
Marchers waved pro-life signs, banners and flags during the rally on the National Mall as Trump told the crowd he was proud to stand with them in their fight to defend the right to life of unborn children.
Diamond and Silk, two popular conservative social media personalities, urged people at the sold-out Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation’s 40th anniversary banquet to forget about political correctness and not allow themselves to be silenced on abortion.
“If we can advocate for women’s rights, we can advocate for the rights of the unborn,” Diamond said. “They have a right to life too.”
Legislation legalizing late-term abortion on demand in New York and other states has sparked national controversy and focused attention in the Lehigh Valley on pending legislation in Pennsylvania.
Wearing their finest Irish attire, 35 purebred and mixed breed dogs from around the Lehigh Valley shared in some St. Patrick’s Day fun. They strutted their stuff in a friendly Celtic canine costume competition in historic North Bethlehem March 16.
