As Donald Trump gears up for a possible run for the White House, he’s explaining how his views on abortion changed over time with a personal experience.

He told the Christian Broadcast Network that a close friend decided to keep a child rather than have an abortion, and that child has thrived. That, among other experiences, prompted him to change his pro-choice stance.

"I'm pro-life, but I changed my view a number of years ago,” Trump told his interviewer. "One of the reasons I changed — one of the primary reasons — a friend of mine's wife was pregnant, in this case married.

“She was pregnant and he didn't really want the baby. And he was telling me the story. He was crying as he was telling me the story. He ends up having the baby and the baby is the apple of his eye. It's the greatest thing that's ever happened to him. And you know here's a baby that wasn't going to be let into life. And I heard this, and some other stories, and I am pro-life."
