President Donald Trump delivered remarks to March for Life supporters Friday in Washington, D.C.

He spoke to activists gathered on the National Mall via video feed from the Rose Garden. That makes him the first sitting president to speak directly to the participants in the anti-abortion rally over live video.

Trump declared Jan. 22 National Sanctity of Human Life Day and promised to continue pushing an anti-abortion agenda from the White House.

"Under my administration, we will always defend the very first right in the Declaration of Independence, and that is the right to life,” Trump said.

"That is why we march, that is why we pray, and that is why we declare that America's future will be filled with goodness, peace, joy, dignity and life for every child of God."

Earlier, the Department of Health and Human Services announced it is rescinding a Medicaid guideline that limits how states can take action against providers that perform abortions.

Vice President Mike Pence also hosted a reception for March for Life participants on Thursday.
