Kellyanne Conway made history on November 8th, 2016 when she became the first female campaign manager of a successful presidential campaign. One January 27th, she will take the stage at the 44th annual 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’,” the March for Life President, Jeanne F. Mancini, announced in a press release.

The March for Life is an annual protest of the 1973 Supreme Court case, Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion across the United States. The march regularly attracts hundreds of thousands of supporters, with the 2013 event attracting an estimated 650,000 protesters.
Conway will speak along side Baltimore Raven’s Benjamin Watson; a former Planned Parenthood Director, Abby Johnson; radio host Eric Metaxas, author of “Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery;” and Mexican Telenovela star Karyme Lozano, according to the organization’s info page.
Past speakers have included President Ronald Reagan, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives John Boehner, and former presidential candidates Rick Santorum, and Rand Paul and pro-life Democrat Rep. Daniel Lipinski of Illinois.
