The Rev. Franklin Graham is among the many who are criticizing Joe Biden for invoking God to defend abortion.
As LifeNews reported, Joe Biden said that the right to an abortion comes from being a “child of God” during press remarks Wednesday.
“This is about a lot more than abortion … this reminds me of the debate with Robert Bork … [who] believed the only reason you had any inherent rights was because the government gave them to you,” he said.
“I believe I have the rights that I have, not because the government gave them to me … but because I am just a child of God, I exist,” he continued. “I delegated by joining this union here to delegate some rights I have to the government for social good.”
But the great pastor Franklin Graham takes exception with those blasphemous remarks.
“Biden said that the right to an abortion comes from being a ‘child of God.’ Mr. President, that is just not true,” Graham tweeted. “Being a child of God does not give you the right to take the lives of the innocent. Abortion is a sin— simply put, it‘s murder.”

Yesterday, Biden also thoroughly trashed pro-life Americans. The remarks come one day after admitting abortion kills a child.
He said protecting babies from abortion was one of the worst things to possibly happen in America and claimed it would lead to taking away other rights — even though abortion itself denies the right to life.
“What are the next things that are going to be attacked? Because this MAGA crowd is clearly the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history,” he said.
As a supposed Catholic, Biden has previously been questioned about his stance on abortion.
“I don’t want to get in a debate with you on theology, but you know,” Biden told a reporter on Ash Wednesday. “Well anyway, I’m not going to make a judgment for other people.”
