Evangelist Franklin Graham has called Planned Parenthood a “Hitleristic organization” whose conduct is “insidious, evil, unjust, and even criminal” and called on lawmakers to “end this wholesale slaughter of innocent life.”
Graham, the leader of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse, voiced his disgust at the leading abortion organization in a lengthy Facebook post.
“Planned Parenthood-the country’s largest abortion provider-received over $353 million in private donations according to a recent annual report,” he said. “Why on earth would Congress give them another $550 million in government grants and reimbursements? In a recent three-year period, Planned Parenthood killed nearly one million babies in the womb-what a tragedy.”
The evangelist continued: “Taxpayer dollars, withheld from American paychecks should never be used to fund a Hitleristic organization whose conduct many see as insidious, evil, unjust, and even criminal. How do they keep on slaughtering little ones, and yet portray themselves as health clinics? Death is their prescription.”
Graham ended his post by urging conservative lawmakers in Congress, both Democratic and Republican, to “stand together to do the right thing and end this wholesale slaughter of innocent life.”
“Every life is precious to God, and should be to us as well,” he said, and encouraged 5.3 million Facebook followers to “call or email your Congressional member and your two U.S Senators today and tell them not to give one more penny to Planned Parenthood!”
