Pro-life Values: Alveda King thanks President Trump for reinstating Reagan's 'Mexico City Policy'

Share On Monday, President Donald Trump reinstated Ronald Reagan's 'Mexico City Policy', also known by critics as the 'Global Gag Rule', which bans the U.S. from giving federal money to international groups that perform abortions or provide information on the option.

While some women's rights advocates are blasting the president over the move, pro-life activist Dr. Alveda King says "Thank you President Trump."

To the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. the president's support of the 'Global Gag Rule' demonstrates that our new Commander-In-Chief cares "enough about the lives of women, mothers and children" to sign the executive order first put in place in 1984.

"The die is cast and the path is clear for America to learn that abortion is not health care. Abortion kills babies and all too often harms the wombs, health, psyche and souls of mothers," says King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn. "By reinstating the 'Mexico City Policy' which saves the lives of thousands of babies and women, President Trump is raising the bar for genuine concern for the lives and health of mothers and our children."

Trump signed it one day after the 44th anniversary of the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision that legalized abortion in the United States, the date on which presidents traditionally take action on the policy. It also prohibits taxpayer funding for groups that lobby to legalize abortion or promote it as a family planning method.

The move was predictably polarizing.

The abortion rights group NARAL condemned the decision as "repressing women."

"With this action, Donald Trump has turned his anti-women rhetoric into policy, and made it more difficult for women and families all over the world to access vital reproductive care," said NARAL president Ilyse Hogue. "He really is living up to the lowest of expectations."

Evangelist King, who is an outspoken advocate for life, women's equity, and civil rights, speaks of the 'Mexico City Policy', which was rescinded by the Obama administration in 2009, in glowing terms. She is happy that the former Obama-supported policy allowing NGOs that performed abortion procedures to receive US tax payer funding for other programs, including those related to contraception access and post-abortion care, is banned.

Referencing data from the popular book Recall Abortion by Priests for Life colleague Janet Morana, Evangelist King said, "abortion kills babies, and often injures and kills mothers. The wombs of the women of America have been under siege for far too long. Abortion and harmful contraceptives are not health care."

Currently King, along with Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life is urging Congress to go a step further and pass "The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act – H.R. 7."

According to Father Pavone, H.R. 7 will write the Hyde Amendment into permanent law, extending the measures covering all federal spending, as well as ending taxpayer funding of abortion providers through Obamacare.

King was a featured speaker at the 58th Inaugural Prayer Service at The National Cathedral in Washington, D. C., about which she said, "It was just awesome to attend the worship service with President Trump, Vice President Pence, their wives and families. God will use not only President Trump, but all who are willing to heal America."
