The die is cast and the path is clear for America to learn that abortion is not healthcare.

Abortion kills babies and all too often harms the wombs, health, psyche and souls of mothers. 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.

As a Christian evangelist and a voice for life, women’s equity, and civil rights I know firsthand the horrors of abortion.

Bishop Harry Jackson, Pastor Darrell Scott, myself and many other diverse presenters, were featured at the 58th Inaugural Prayer Service at The National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.

Having confidence in God and not humans, it was just awesome to attend the worship service with President Trump, Vice President Pence, their wives and families. It is becoming increasingly obvious that God will use not only President Trump, but all who are willing to heal America.

Thank you President Trump, for caring enough about the lives of women, mothers and children, by reinstating the Mexico City Policy during your first 100 days in office.

President Donald Trump signed an executive action on today reinstating the Mexico City Policy, which bars international non-governmental organizations that perform or promote abortions from receiving U.S. government funding.

The policy was enacted by the Reagan administration, only to be rescinded by the Obama administration in 2009, allowing during that time, for non-governmental organizarions (NGOs) that performed abortion procedures to receive U.S. taxpayer funding for other programs, including those related to contraception access and post-abortion care.

As Janet Morana writes in "Recall Abortion," "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 healthcare."

I also join Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life in urging Congress to pass the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act – H.R. 7, which 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.

Currently, the Hyde Amendment, which has saved an estimated 2 million lives by restricting abortion funding for programs such as Medicaid, must be approved every year by Congress. H.R. 7 will make it permanent, so that it isn't necessary to have this annual budget battle. "By extending the Amendment so that it covers all federal spending, not just programs funded through the Health and Human Services spending bill, it will no longer be necessary for Congress to have multiple votes on multiple measures each year regarding abortion funding from various government funding sources," explains Father Pavone.

Dr. Alveda C. King grew up in the civil rights movement led by her uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. She is director of African-American outreach for Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries. Her family home in Birmingham, Ala., was bombed, as was her father's church office in Louisville, Ky. Alveda herself was jailed during the open housing movement. Read more reports from Dr. Alveda C.
