The Rev. Franklin Graham recently wrote that raising support for Planned Parenthood is like “raising money to fund a Nazi death camp.”
Graham’s words came in response to the news that Barbara Bush, the daughter of former President George W. Bush, would be delivering the keynote address at a Planned Parenthood fundraiser.
Bush is the co-founder and CEO of Global Health Corps and has previously praised Planned Parenthood.
“So many young people want to work on social change. They want to do good. Global Health started because this great talent pipeline was not moving into health care. It's hard to know how you fit in if you're not a doctor or nurse. If we can demystify that and create channels into Planned Parenthood and other exceptional organizations, then we'll have an army of people working to solve health problems,” she said last summer when asked about her work with Global Health.
Graham went on to say that Planned Parenthood is the number one abortion provider in the U.S. and performs over 300,000 abortions a year. “And this is the organisation whose employees were caught on video trying to sell baby body parts over wine. Disgusting,” he added.
