POTUS IS REDIRECTING [NOT CUTTING] FUNDS TO SAVE LIVES!

Finally our tax dollars are being redirected from death care to health care. President Trump’s “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance” policy is simply amazing. Friends, he’s not robbing the poor, he’s saving lives. Remember, abortion is not health care. Abortions kill babies and sometimes mothers. Abortion is a violent and deceptive act. I know. I survived two abortions and a miscarriage. My babies didn’t. #HowCanTheDreamSurviveAbortion

With his New Mexico City Policy, our new POTUS Administration is now multiplying the life saving impact well beyond the Department of State.

What’s new? Well along with the $600 million in taxpayer funding saved under the authority of the New Mexico City pro-life rule, $8.8 billion from the Departments of State, Health and Human Services, and Defense are being redirected for life. That’s almost 15 times more money flowing through the abortion ban than previous policies; yes cutting deaths by abortion while saving lives.

In a nutshell, here’s what POTUS is doing: “I direct the Secretary of State, in coordination with the Secretary of Health and Human Services, to the extent allowable by law, to implement a plan to extend the requirements of the reinstated Memorandum to global health assistance furnished by all departments or agencies…” President Trump directed.

“I further direct the Secretary of State to take all necessary actions, to the extent permitted by law, to ensure that U.S. taxpayer dollars do not fund organizations or programs that support or participate in the management of a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization.”

As one White House official told The Brody File, “The pro-life policy will apply to global health assistance funding for international health programs, such as those for HIV/AIDS, maternal and child health, malaria, global health security, and family planning and reproductive health.”

Many people already know and understand that the inclusion of the DOD is probably the single greatest change, since the order affects all global health assistance funding — not just “family planning” dollars. Super life saving, money redirecting impact. More funds are now available for improving our quality of life. America Return to God!

Now, along with thousands and maybe millions of unborn lives; not to mention healing women and mothers, this policy will help heal America. Keep praying friends. President Donald Trump is listening to 83 percent of Americans who asked him to end taxpayer funding of overseas abortion groups. I’m in that number. Are you? Pray about it!

“If you succumb to the temptation of using violence in the struggle, unborn generations will be the recipients of a long and desolate night of bitterness, and your chief legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — With the House of Representatives scheduled to vote tomorrow to end all taxpayer funding of abortion, Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement.

“The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act – H.R. 7 — is vital in three ways. It will write the Hyde Amendment into permanent law. It will extend the Hyde Amendment so that it covers all federal spending. And it will end taxpayer funding of abortion 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.

“Our pro-life victories at the ballot box last November can now be translated into pro-life victories in Congress!

“And let us thank God and continue to rejoice that we have a President who is going to sign this and other pro-life measures. We do not have to ‘wait and see’ about what President Trump will do. We already know, and he has already accomplished a major victory by preventing Hillary Clinton from becoming president. Under her, the amount of money flowing into the abortion industry would have increased exponentially.”

Evangelist Alveda King: “With Mexico City Policy, President Trump begins first 100 days with prayers and executive actions that promise healing for America”

Alveda greets President Trump at National Prayer Service

Atlanta, GA – “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. 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,” says Evangelist Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life. The Christian Evangelist is a voice for life, women’s equity, and civil rights.

King, along with Bishop Harry Jackson, Pastor Darrell Scott and many other diverse presenters, was a featured speaker at the 58th Inaugural Prayer Service at The National Cathedral in Washington, D. C. She has long noted her confidence in God and not humans, and 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.”

“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 US 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 NGOs that performed abortion procedures to receive US tax payer funding for other programs, including those related to contraception access and post-abortion care.

Referencing data from the popular book RECALL ABORTION by Priests for Life colleague Janet Morana, Evangelist King reminds America that “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.”

Evangelist King also joins Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life in urging Congress to 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.

“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.

Fr. Pavone Praises President Trump’s Order to Defund International Planned Parenthood

NEW YORK – Fr. Frank Pavone today praised President Donald Trump’s action to reinstate the Mexico City Policy, which prevents taxpayer funds from being given to groups that promote or perform abortions abroad.

“Just as he and we have promised, so now we see pro-life fruits of the election unfolding as President Trump has taken immediate action to reinstitute President Reagan’s ‘Mexico City Policy,’” said Fr. Pavone. “Poll after poll shows that Americans do not want their tax money to pay for abortions. Stopping funding to foreign pro-abortion groups is a powerful first step toward doing the same domestically.”

The Mexico City Policy was first adopted by President Ronald Reagan and is named after a United Nations population conference held in Mexico’s capital in 1984. The policy, which has been in effect during Republican administrations and revoked in Democratic ones, bars the U.S. Agency for International Development from giving funds to organizations that promote or perform abortions in foreign countries.

“Thanks to President Trump’s action today, the International Planned Parenthood Federation will no longer be subsidized by taxpayers,” added Fr. Pavone. “And thanks to the president’s commitment to the unborn, we can soon say the same for Planned Parenthood in the U.S.”
