During the National Prayer Breakfast, President Donald Trump expanded on comments that he made during the State of the Union address and got a standing ovation from the crowd.
The president has been very outspoken about his pro-life beliefs and continued to speak out on them.
“We must build a culture that cherishes dignity and sanctity of innocent human life,” Trump said. “All children, born and unborn, are made in the holy image of God. Every life is sacred, and every soul is a precious gift from heaven.”
Trump also quoted The Bible as a way to support his beliefs and the comments got a standing ovation from the crowd.
“As the Lord says in Jeremiah, ‘before I formed you in the womb, I knew you – before you were born, I set you apart,’” Trump said.

“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 from birth. These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and dreams with the world.”
At the Prayer Breakfast, the president encouraged prayer for the future of the country and for all children.
