At the 46th annual March for Life event in Washington, D.C, on Friday - a rally that protests abortion - the president and vice president made a surprise visit to show their support.

This year's theme is "Unique from Day One." with an emphasis on the connections between science and the anti-abortion cause. Everyone has a right to life, and she said that right should extend to the unborn.

"Forty-six years ago this month the majority on the Supreme Court turned its back on that right, but in that moment, a movement was born, a movement defined by compassion and love; a movement animated by faith and truth; and a movement that's been winning hearts and minds every day since", Pence said.

The vice president ensured the marchers they have "an unwavering ally in this vice president, in our family, and you have a champion in the president of the United States of America". "But we gather here today because we know we still have much work to do".

He also added, "We know that every life has meaning and that every life is worth protecting".

But there are not enough trucks, and long lines at gas stations have plagued several states. Footage then showed flames shooting high into the air and the pipeline ablaze.

"In one of his very first acts, President Trump reinstated the Mexico City Policy, and now we will ensure that our foreign aid dollars never go to groups that promote abortions overseas", the vice president said as he continued to name some of the other pro-life accomplishments of the Trump administration.

Trump, who was the first sitting president past year to address the rally, once again stated an opposition to abortion despite having once supported it before running for office.

"President Trump and the Republican Party remain committed to standing up for the most vulnerable and voiceless Americans."

However, Pence repeated Trump's promise in his message to the March for Life supporters that he will veto any bill that promotes abortion. Marchers from across the country will take over the National Mall and call for a pro-life agenda, many hoping for the eventual overturning of the Roe v Wade.
