RNC Chair Presence at 2014 March for Life in D.C. First in Recent History

The following blog post is by Family Council staff member Luke McCoy.

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.

You can read Chairman Priebus’s thoughts on the importance of the March for Life and being pro-life here.
