It is encouraging to know that a pro-life party had its chair attend an annual March for Life this year.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus joined hundreds of thousands of pro-life supporters at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. for the 2014 national March for Life.
Many would figure this is a forgone conclusion and find it ironic or odd for a current RNC chairman not to attend such a meaningful event. However, Chairman Priebus’ attendance marks the first time in recent history that a national party chair has attended the March for Life. It is safe to say, however, that the pro-choice party chair will not be attending any March for Life events soon, even though roughly half of Americans identify themselves as pro-life, and 58% believe abortion should be either completely illegal or legal only under a few circumstances.
We as Arkansans are encouraged by the regular appearance of GOP State Chairman Doyle Webb at our state’s annual March For Life in Little Rock.
