President Donald Trump continued the pro-life themes of his State of the Union Address on Tuesday night with a pro-life speech this morning at the National Prayer Breakfast.
“All children are made in the holy image of God. Every life is sacred and every soul is a precious gift from heaven,” he said, to raucous applause. “As part of our commitment to building a just and loving society, we must build a culture that cherishes the dignity and sanctity of innocent human life.”
“We must build a culture that cherishes the dignity and sanctity of innocent human life,” Trump said. “As the Lord says in Jeremiah, ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart.’”

He slammed the governors of New York and Virginia for promoting abortion up to birth and infanticide. And he called for Congress to pass a ban on late-term abortions on babies who are capable of feeling pain.
There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our nation saw in recent days.
Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth. These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and dreams with the world.
And then, we had the case of the governor of Virginia where he stated he would execute a baby after birth. To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb.
Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life.
And let us reaffirm a fundamental truth — all children — born and unborn— are made in the holy image of God.
