Pastor Franklin Graham took to Facebook to make his views clear on abortion and the Planned Parenthood abortion business. Graham minced no words in condemning the abortion company.

The abortion business Planned Parenthood now is targeting the youngest school children of all with its sex agenda and part of Graham’s reasoning for posting had to do with that.

“Remember, Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the U.S., performing over 300,000 abortions annually,” said the Rev. Graham.  “The thought of that alone is staggering—what a tragedy.”

“Abortion is the murder of an unborn child,” he said.  “What kind of parenting is that?”

The abortion business published new points for talking to pre-schoolers (children as young as 3 and 4) about sex and “gender identity.” Planned Parenthood teaches it sex education programs to students in public schools across the country. Some pro-lifers say Planned Parenthood uses its sex ed program to gain students’ trust and sell more abortions. Most of its programs target high school and junior high students, but some even target the youngest students of all – pre-schoolers.

Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood denies science by suggesting parents teach their children that genitals do not determine someone’s gender.

Responding to that, Graham said: “Planned Parenthood’s true colors are showing. They’re in the news this time because their website gives ‘guidelines’ that instruct parents to teach their children, even preschoolers, that ‘your genitals don’t make you a boy or a girl.'”

He continued, “Among other things, it says, ‘Putting daughters in pink princess rooms and boys in blue sports rooms before they’re old enough to choose for themselves can send the message that they have to like certain things because of their gender.'”

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately

Planned Parenthood is absolutely right that talking with children about sex is directly connected to values. Yet, few parents are comfortable with the “values” that the abortion chain teaches. It promotes risky sexual behavior and fight against laws that require parents to be involved in a minor’s abortion decision.

The abortion chain also has been caught in numerous scandals involving potential Medicaid fraud and failures to report suspected sex trafficking and sexual abuse of minors. Earlier this year, a Congressional investigation into the abortion business involving its sales of aborted baby parts concluded with lawmakers recommended that Congress defund it.

The abortion giant publishes multiple “resources” for children and teenagers concerning sexual activity. These materials claim to provide “age appropriate” sex education to children starting at age 4. Planned Parenthood justifies starting sex education at such a young age by stating, “Ideally, medical accurate sexuality education would be taught each year in our schools from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade.”
