Trump Stresses Anti-Abortion Focus in Appeal to Evangelicals

posted on February 7, 2019

The Associated Press’s Jill Colvin and Zeke Miller report on Thursday’s National Prayer Breakfast, in which President Donald Trump underscored the importance of anti-abortion policies in an appeal to conservative, Christian voters. Trump said, “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.” Colvin and Miller write, “That pledge, two days after Trump in his State of the Union address denounced late-term abortion, is part of his effort to re-energize evangelical voters, who have been among his most loyal supporters and will be vital to his re-election prospects.”
