Trump: Transgenders barred from military service 'in any capacity'
WASHINGTON (July 26, 2017) — President Donald Trump is barring transgender people from serving in the military “in any capacity,” citing “tremendous medical costs and disruption.”
Pro-lifers are heading to Washington, DC, by the busload for activities to promote life. While the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion is Tuesday, the annual "March for Life" will be held Friday.
Spokesperson Jeanne Monahan, who serves as president of March for Life, says this year's event promises to be a huge success.
"Our hotels sold out a month in advance of when they normally sell out, and we're just seeing different markers, both in media requests and also in that groups like Students for Life of America sold out a month in advance of when they normally sell out," she tells OneNewsNow.
"So we believe that we're going to have record-breaking crowds because it's the 40th anniversary of Roe. Also, Nellie Gray our foundress has passed away [since last year's march]."
Part of the march will pay tribute to Gray. There are other reasons why the crowds should be larger this year, according to Monahan.
"The recent election has left pro-lifers wanting an outlet to express their strongly held views to their legislators, as I think the HHS mandate, which includes abortion-inducing drugs also has," she says. "I think for all of those reasons we're going to have record-breaking crowds."
Several members of Congress will join in the ranks as the March for Life ends up on the steps of the Supreme Court which legalized abortion 40 years ago in ruling on Roe v. Wade. At least 55 million children have died in the womb since then.
