Friday's March for Life will include an "historic" list of speakers calling for the overturn of the landmark Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade including top Trump aide Kellyanne Conway, New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Baltimore Raven Benjamin Watson and a former executive of Planned Parenthood.
The 44th march in Washington, expected to draw tens of thousands, is also expected to have the attention of the White House. Vice President Pence spoke at several marches while serving as an Indiana congressman but hasn't indicated if he will attend or call in a statement.
C-SPAN on Tuesday announced that it will provide coverage of the march.
"I'm delighted to welcome a remarkable line-up of rally speakers for what will truly be a historic 44th annual March for Life," said Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life.
"Each of our speakers exemplifies this year's theme, 'the power of one', in a beautiful way," noted Mancini. "Their words are sure to motivate the marchers, as well as the millions of pro-life Americans who will be watching, who dedicate themselves to restoring a culture of life in the United States."

— Kellyanne Conway, Senior Counselor to President-elect Trump.
— Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York.
