Franklin Graham, son of the late Billy Graham and president of Samaritan’s Purse, praised former President Donald Trump and former President Mike Pence on Friday for nominating three of the Supreme Court justices who voted to make up a majority to overturn Roe V. Wade.
“Greta, I felt that one day it would happen because it’s the right thing,” he said on Newsmax TV. “I’m just so thankful for President Trump and Vice President Pence, former Vice President Pence, for the nomination of conservative justices to the Supreme Court. It’s the right decision. When you think of 60 million, over 60 million lives have been terminated since Roe versus Wade — this is a genocide against the unborn.”
“Today, abortion is not illegal in the United States,” Franklin Graham continued. “Of course, it’s going back to the states to decide what abortion rights should be in that state. So, it should be at the state level. I wish it was wiped out completely, but it’s not. There’s going to be many states that permit abortion, but I believe this is a step in the right direction.”
Graham echoed many pro-life voices who praised the ruling and noted that it was a first step in protecting unborn children.
While some on the left have catastrophized the decision as taking away women’s control over their bodies, it is only the court’s effort to revert to a more originalist interpretation of the Constitution, which does not contain any language pertaining to abortion.
