Franklin Graham, the son of the legendary evangelist Billy Graham, is a force to be reckoned with in his own right. He is, for example, the founder of Samaritan’s Purse which describes itself as “a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world” going all the way back to 1970.
Its outreach is incredible, the good work it does in the worst of catastrophes inspirational.
Franklin Graham is also a passionate—Passionate with a Capital P—pro-lifer who keenly understands what is at stake January 5th in Georgia. Politically, yes, but also morally and biblically, as he tweeted out earlier this week.
NRL News Today readers fully understand that if Democrats win the two Senate runoff races, there will be 50 Democrat senators and 50 Republican senators. If Joe Biden is confirmed as President, his vice President, Kamala Harris, will cast tie-breaking votes in her role as President of the Senate.
Franklin Graham’s ire was particularly raised by the Rev. Raphael Warnock, the pro-abortion Democrat running against pro-life Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler who has a 100% pro-life voting record with National Right to Life. The other crucial contest features pro-life Republican Senator David Perdue versus pro-abortion Democrat Jon Ossoff.
As we’ve discussed in prior NRL News Today posts, Rev. Warnock is a favorite of Planned Parenthood. As the Atlantic Journal-Constitution wrote
Follow LifeNews on the Parler social media network for the latest pro-life news!
Staci Fox, the head of Planned Parenthood’s Atlanta-based chapter, called Warnock a “dedicated champion” who will fight new abortion restrictions in the U.S. Senate. …
Warnock, who worked as a sexual health educator before joining the clergy, has long been a vocal supporter of abortion rights.
Rev. Warnock is quite adept at espousing his pro-abortion views. According to Breitbart News, Rev. Warnock said in an interview with WGAU’s Tim Bryant back in August that abortion is “consistent with” his philosophy as a Christian minister:
“I believe unequivocally in a woman’s right to choose, and that the decision is something that we don’t want government engaged in – that’s between her and her doctor and her minister,” he said, adding that, during his campaign, he has been “focused on women’s health, women’s choice, reproductive justice. That is consistent with my view as a Christian minister. And I will fight for it.”
When Bryant asked him, “Do you think it’s consistent with God’s view – that God endorses the millions of abortions we’ve had in this country since Roe v. Wade?” Warnock replied, “I think that human agency and freedom is consistent with my view as a minister.”
He also tweeted out
Reverend Raphael Warnock @ReverendWarnock
I will always fight for reproductive justice.
For us, as single-issue pro-lifers, “Reproductive justice” means not only the obvious—abortion on demand—but also “access.” Access can and does mean many things but first and foremost it means facilitating abortion by compelling unwilling taxpayers to foot the bill for elective abortions and eliminating any and all protective state laws.
On Monday, Franklin Graham offered up a fiery response
@PPFA calls GA Democratic Senate Candidate @ReverendWarnock a champion for reproductive rights. Truthfully translated, that means Raphael Warnock champions the killing of babies in the safety of a mother’s womb through abortion.
Candidate Warnock also said he supports “reproductive justice.” Justice? What an ironic term to use. Abortion represents the most significant INJUSTICE of our time—genocide of entire masses of babies. This isn’t just a political issue, it’s a moral & a biblical issue.
Thank you, once again, Franklin Graham, for standing up for unborn babies.
