Trump executive order reinstates 'Mexico City Policy' on abortion

 | 

President Donald J. Trump issued an executive order Jan. 23 reinstating the "Mexico City Policy," which bans all foreign nongovernmental organizations receiving U.S. funds from performing or promoting abortion as a method of family planning in other countries.

The action was hailed by pro-life leaders.

"President Trump is continuing Ronald Reagan's legacy by taking immediate action on day one to stop the promotion of abortion through our tax dollars overseas." said a Jan. 23 statement from Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List.

Terrorist attacks pose challenge for all 'people of faith,' says imam

Atrocities committed in the name of Islam reverberate in a historic mosque in Washington.

"It's difficult," said Imam Talib Shareef, who is head preacher at the Nation's Mosque.

He made the comments in an interview with Catholic News Service Nov. 28. Two weeks earlier, terrorist attacks, which the Islamic State claimed responsibility for, killed 130 people and wounded hundreds of others in various locations in Paris.
