Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said President Trump is "leading the charge for civil rights today for the little unborn persons in the womb who have a right to live."
All people have a right to live "from the womb to the tomb," said King, who directs the pro-life campaign, Civil Rights for the Unborn.

King also pushed back on Democrats' charges of racism against the president.
Rep. John Lewis, (D-GA), a civil rights icon, has had harsh words for the president, calling him "uncaring" and ignorant of the civil rights movement.
"He has surrounded himself with African-American leaders," King said. "At the African-American museum, for example, he was knowledgeable of much of the history of African-Americans"
She called President Trump a "very brilliant man" and "compassionate."
