Ben Shapiro This Year’s March For Life Keynote Speaker

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro will be the keynote speaker for this year’s March For Life event, which promotes the pro-life movement.

Shapiro, editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire, said he is “honored and excited” to speak at the 46th annual march on January 18 in Washington, D.C.

The 2019 theme is “Unique from Day One: Pro-Life is Pro-Science.”

Shapiro has been a vocal supporter of the pro-life movement and regularly uses his site’s YouTube channel to speak out against abortion. One of his most recent arguments was that if Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh had been pro-choice, “he would have been confirmed with 100 votes.”
