National Catholic Register, Matthew Bunson: At a memorable spot in the State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday night, President Donald Trump spoke in defense of the nation’s children.
“Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life,” he said. “And let us reaffirm a fundamental truth: All children — born and unborn — are made in the holy image of God.”
The remark earned a standing ovation from the Republican members, as well as a few Democrats, but it was greeted with stony silence by most of the Democrats in the chamber. Report is here.
