Franklin Graham: America’s Morality is Crumbling Thanks in Part to Obama’s Abortion Extremism

Reverend Franklin Graham, son of world-renown Christian evangelist Billy Graham, recently took to Facebook to defend New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s controversial comments concerning his opinion about President Obama.

On Facebook he wrote, “Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani has taken a lot of heat from the media for his remark that he’s not sure if President Obama really loves America. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but I do know that the president defends Islam and chastises Christians, rebukes our allies and befriends our enemies, and fully supports gay marriage and abortion but denies the religious freedoms of those who don’t agree.”

According to the Christian Post, Graham added that America is “ridiculed abroad and morally crumbling within.” He said, “We are in trouble. We have turned our back on God.”



Unfortunately, Barack Obama has been the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history. From taxpayer funding of abortions in America and around the world, to stacking the Supreme Court and federal courts with abortion extremists, Obama has shown true disregard for human life. In fact, as LifeNews previously reported, during his first week in office, Obama wasted no time in overturning the Mexico City Policy that President Bush put back in place after it was scrapped during the Bush administration.

The Mexico City Policy requires the more than 600 groups that receive State Department taxpayer funding to pledge not to promote or perform abortions with it. Abortion advocates objected to the measure for years during the Bush administration because they want to use the funds to do abortions overseas or lobby pro-life nations to reverse their laws against unlimited abortions. Obama legally had the right to divert the funding, but his administration appears to have also broken the law to promote abortion overseas.

Additionally, earlier this year the Obama administration issued a veto threat indicating that the president would veto a bill to ban late-term abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy; and on the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade Obama reiterated his support of abortion on demand by saying that abortion “gives our daughters rights and freedoms.” Furthermore, President Obama is very close with Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, who has visited him on numerous occasions.

Graham’s post about President Obama has been well received by his followers and shared over 55,000 times, with fans giving the post over 140,000 “likes” on Facebook.
