President Trump is slated to deliver the keynote address at a prominent anti-abortion event next week, according to the White House.

The Susan B. Anthony List annual “Campaign for Life” gala is scheduled to take place on May 22 at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.

White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah said Monday that Trump would “discuss the many actions he has taken to protect the lives of the unborn and defend religious liberty.”

A document on the official webpage of the Susan B. Anthony List has compiled the pro-life accomplishments of President Trump since he has taken over the presidency. Trump, who once described himself as “very pro-choice,” has surpassed previous predecessors in efforts to limit abortions according to many key members of the Susan B. Anthony List group.

“President Donald Trump is governing as the most pro-life president in our nation’s history and Susan B. Anthony List is honored to receive him at our annual Campaign for Life Gala,” said Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.

Dannenfelser, who was the chairwoman of Trump’s Pro-Life coalition, called the 2018 midterms the “most important election for the pro-life movement since Roe. v. Wade,” which legalized abortion in the United States.

Dannenfelser also said, “Unborn children, their mothers, and pro-life taxpayers could not have a stronger ally in the White House than President Trump, and we look forward to the many victories we can achieve together.”

Kellyanne Conway, who serves as counselor to the president, is also set to receive the group’s 2018 Distinguished Leader Award at the event. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise is also on the agenda to deliver remarks at the gala.

“Kellyanne’s presence on the Trump campaign was an indication that Donald Trump took the pro-life issue very seriously,” Dannenfelser said.

“Now serving as counselor to the president, Kellyanne plays a key role in helping President Trump to fulfill the four major promises he made to the pro-life movement during the campaign,” Dannenfesler added.
