President Trump today gave his seal of approval to the work of Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life.

Ms. King, a niece of Martin Luther King Jr., was invited to join the president as he toured the National Museum of African American History in Washington, D.C.

Standing beside him while he addressed the media, President Trump said to Ms. King: “I want to profoundly thank Alveda King. She is a tremendous fighter for justice. You are so incredible. And I want to thank you for all the nice things you say about me.”

Ms. King said she was “honored and humbled” to be singled out for praise by the president.

“Under President Trump, our nation is going to make great strides toward protecting the unborn. Priests for Life is in the vanguard of the fight for life and having the president with us, rather than against us, will make all the difference.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, invited Ms. King to be part of the Priests for Life team 14 years ago when they found themselves together at the March for Life in D.C.

“We both agreed that the fight to abolish abortion is the civil rights movement of the 21st century,” Father Pavone said.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Evangelist Alveda King, director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life, was among 26 religious leaders who prayed for President Donald Trump Saturday at Washington National Cathedral.

The National Prayer Service is a tradition that dates back to the inauguration of George Washington as the first president of the United States of America. The tradition was revived in 1933 and has taken place every four years since.

Ms. King, a niece of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, said she prayed that “Our faith and gratitude remain in God, working through you President Trump to lead, embrace and bless all Americans as brothers and sisters.

“Today our prayer is that God will use President Trump and all who labor with him for God’s glory. We are also encouraged by the grace and respect with which he has begun his term.”

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said, “I am proud of our new president, and am rejoicing in his victory and his inauguration. There is indeed great reason for all who value life and love America to rejoice at this time. No need to wait to see what he will do, because he has already done an incalculable good for America by keeping Hillary Clinton from being elected. And we look forward to much more good as well!”
