Mike Huckabee applauded the Trump administration's proposal to cut funding for family planning clinics linked to abortion, saying he's "proud of this president for respecting the sanctity of human life."

A guest Friday on Fox News' "America's Newsroom," the former Arkansas governor said it's about time this country stopped the "genocide" of abortion, and he rebuffed those who said the proposal is an assault on women's ability to get healthcare.

"There's nothing healthy for the baby when it's murdered," Huckabee said on Fox. 

"There's nothing healthy for the mother when a very serious surgical procedure is done upon her, often done in clinics that are not even subject to the same kind of restrictions and regulations that you have to have to pull a tooth," Huckabee said. 

Abortion "is an outrage, it's an embarrassment, it's genocide. It's time to stop it. I'm so proud of this president for respecting the sanctity of human life and I hope that we go through with this," Huckabee said.

The Trump administration's proposal would cut funding to any family planning clinic that either provides abortions or refers women for abortions, Planned Parenthood being one. 

About time, Huckabee says.

"It means this country would start doing what it oughta do - start protecting the 5 and 14 amendment rights of children. These are human beings. They're babies. They have a heartbeat. They have brainwaves," Huckabee said.  

"They may be in the womb but they're humans. And they need to be treated that way. They need to have due process before they're unceremoniously put to death with the form of abortion," Huckabee said.  

Further, it's another example of a promise made, a promise kept by Trump.

"This president, he may not do it immediately but he keeps his promises," Huckabee said. "I've seen nothing but consistency in pro-life policies. I fully expect that he will do this."
