Franklin Graham: Fundraising for Planned Parenthood ‘is like raising money to fund a Nazi death camp’
February 28, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Franklin Graham is calling out former President George W. Bush’s daughter, Barbara Pierce Bush, for speaking at a Planned Parenthood fundraiser on Thursday, saying that raising funds for the abortion business is like raising money for Nazi death camps.
“Planned Parenthood is the #1 abortion provider in the United States,” Graham wrote in a Facebook post yesterday. “Raising funds for this organization is like raising money to fund a Nazi death camp — like Auschwitz, except for innocent babies in their mother’s wombs!”
The Christian evangelist and son of Billy Graham continued: “Reports say they [Planned Parenthood] perform over 300,000 abortions per year. And this is the organization whose employees were caught on video trying to sell baby body parts over wine. Disgusting.”
Bush will be the keynote speaker at the fundraiser for Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas. Individual tickets to the event cost $150, and sponsorship levels go up to $20,000.
As LifeSiteNews reported, Bush’s company, Global Health Corps, which promotes “health equity,” works closely with Planned Parenthood, which Bush labeled an "exceptional organization." A senior staffer for GHC is a former board member of Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands, and the Pacific Northwest Abortion Fund.
Bush and Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards "are enthusiastic supporters of each other’s work," The New York Times reported in an article celebrating their alliance.
When it comes to social issues, Bush seems to have imbibed the liberal worldview of former First Lady Laura Bush, who is pro-abortion-on-demand and pro-“gay marriage.” Her twin sister, Jenna Welch Bush Hager, is less outwardly political. Neither is a registered Republican despite the roles of their famous father and grandfather.
In January 2011, the younger Bush cut a short commercial endorsing homosexual “marriage” for the group New Yorkers for Marriage Equality. In it, she said: "New York is about fairness and equality, and everyone should have the right to marry the person that they love. Join us." New York legalized same-sex “marriage” later that year. Barbara Bush also supported Hillary Clinton’s run for president.
In a 2010 interview with CNN’s Larry King, Laura Bush voiced her support for homosexual “marriage” and keeping abortion legal, i.e., not overturning Roe v. Wade.
