BREAKING VIDEO: President Trump calls out mainstream media for failing to cover March for Life

During a Wednesday night interview with ABC, President Trump called out the media for covering a pro-abortion march but ignoring the March for Life.

ABC's David Muir asked Trump if he "could hear the voices from the women's march here in Washington?"

"I couldn't hear them, but the crowds were large," Trump responded. "You're gonna have a large crowd on Friday, too, which is mostly pro-life people. You're gonna have a lot of people coming on Friday, and I will say this, and I didn't realize this, but I was told, you will have a very large crowd of people. I don't know - as large or larger - some people say it's gonna be larger. Pro-life people. And they say the press doesn't cover them."

WATCH: Mary Wagner arrested again for trying to save babies at abortion center

Longtime pro-life prisoner of conscience Mary Wagner was arrested at a west-end Toronto abortion center Monday for attempting to non-violently intervene to save women and unborn babies from the violence of abortion.

Wagner, 42, was escorted by two Toronto Police officers from the Bloor West Village Women's Center, which is located on the fourth floor of an office complex at 2425 Bloor West Village, shortly after noon on December 12.

Wagner had attempted to gain access to the abortion center, carrying with her, as is her custom, a bag of white and red roses, as well as pamphlets and cards.

Prof who refuses to use gender pronouns points to Catholicism as bulwark against extremism

Embattled Canadian free speech advocate and self-avowed political correctness opponent Jordan Peterson describes the Catholic Church as one of Western culture's primary bulwarks against ideological extremism.

A well-known University of Toronto psychology professor, Peterson has challenged human rights laws and regulations as well as his university's policies requiring the use of new pronouns demanded by people claiming to belong to one or many of the 50-plus new genders promoted by gender theory.

Peterson has refused to comply based on three grounds: there is no scientific evidence that any genders exist outside of male and female; there are too many new genders and pronouns like "zer" and "xe" to remember; and the requirement to use them is a huge imposition on freedom of thought and speech.

Lesbian prof slams colleague for resisting transgender speech... but her own classes were filled with hate speech

The lesbian academic who accused Toronto free speech advocate Jordan Peterson of hate speech taught a course full of "misandry," or hatred of men, according to a former student.

The student who took a fourth-year course at the University of British Columbia from Mary K. Bryson in 1991 told National Post columnist Christie Blatchford she had taken other women's studies courses but never been in a class "where misandry was taught to you."

Bryson, a senior associate dean and professor of education at the University of British Columbia, was one of two people brought in for a forum this month at the University of Toronto to challenge psychology professor Jordan Peterson's claims that federal and provincial human rights legislation and U of T anti-discrimination measures were dangerous attacks on free speech.

We stand with Jordan Peterson

Jordan Peterson is facing persecution for not using trendy buzzwords left-wing activists want to force upon him.

The University of Toronto professor recently announced he won't use gender neutral pronouns like "zer" and "zhe" to describe students, should they request it.

We don't care whether he does or doesn't.

This so-called "gender neutral pronoun" debate speaks to a very small minority of people. It's just not a big deal.
