There are just some things that the Republican Party can not compromise on – and the funding of unregulated abortion mills such as Planned Parenthood is one of them.
At least, that’s the thinking of prominent Evangelist Franklin Graham who walked away from the GOP after they helped to pass a “wasteful” $1.1 trillion spending bill that funds Planned Parenthood.
This, in spite of a recent spate of horrific videos which shows executives bartering baby parts for money.
Via Fox News:
Evangelist Franklin Graham announced Tuesday he is leaving the Republican Party over the GOP-led spending bill passed last week, calling it “wasteful” and likening funding of Planned Parenthood to Nazi concentration camps.
“Shame on the Republicans and the Democrats for passing such a wasteful spending bill last week,” he said. “And to top it off, funding Planned Parenthood!”
Graham, who had previously slammed both political parties, let his frustration flow on a Facebook posting.
“Seeing and hearing Planned Parenthood talk nonchalantly about selling baby parts from aborted fetuses with utter disregard for human life is reminiscent of Joseph Mengele and the Nazi concentration camps!,” he wrote. “That should’ve been all that was needed to turn off the faucet for their funding. Nothing was done to trim this 2,000 page, $1.1 trillion budget.”
Considering how the party’s presidential candidates court the Evangelical vote, especially during early primaries, the stance by Graham is a strong one that should send shivers down the spine of establishment Republicans.
Here’s the video:
Graham went on to say he saw nothing encouraging coming from any political party in the United States currently.
“I have no hope in the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, or Tea Party to do what is best for America,” he wrote. “Unless more godly men and women get in this process and change this wicked system, our country is in for trouble.”
