Malawi church leader welcomes Trump freeze on abortion aid

Some religious leaders in the country have heartly welcomed a decision by US president Donald Trump to freeze aid on abortion services.

Rev Kawalala: Applauds President Trump for putting an end to funding of groups that promote the killing of unborn children in developing nations

Evangelical Association of Malawi chairperson on Ethics, Zacc Kawalala said a welcome development as the state or anyone has no right to make a decision on whether to end life or not.

“It was not good that the US was providing funds for abortion services in Malawi when the laws do not allow abortion.

“In fact we presented a petition to the US embassy to stop funding on abortion services in Malawi and other African countries so the decision by Mr Trump is a welcome development,” said Kawalala.

Abortion activist Chrispine Sibande however told the media the move by the US will lead to loss of jobs as NGOs which got the funding for abortion services will have to cut jobs following the loss of the funding.

Critics said the order would hinder the ability of women in poor countries to obtain reproductive health services, including family planning, by severing U.S. funding to health clinics that offer a variety of services, including abortion counseling.

Chrispine Sibande can only say that because he was not aborted.

I do not think Trump is Christian but he has done well.

When many of us expressed shock and dismay at the election of Trump as president we were maybe just being short-sighted. The man seems to have some good ideas inside of him!

I have said time and again that the media wants us to believe that Trump is a devil while the opposite is true. This guy wants to bring order in the world. Things like abortion, Mathanyula, terrorism, unending wars were being perpetrated deliberately by evil Americans. Thank God for mr Trump

Same sex marriages should also face same treatment. Trapence apeze Zochita zachilungamo. By the way is Mrs Trapence a she or he?

I salute Rev. Makondesa of PIM. Indeed we do not a president to be a Reverend or Bishop and similar titles. Trump is none of those colleagues but see what he has done. This is because Reverends are praying for America. If Reverends abandon their role and join politics, who will be praying for politician. Please Reverends, go back to the puppet and resume your prophetic roles, politics is not for you.
