Franklin Graham Slams Democrat Bullying Over Abortion Pills

Prominent evangelical pastor Franklin Graham has praised Walgreens and other stores for refusing to sell the abortion pill in pro-life states despite bullying from Democrats.

“I am grateful that Walgreens is not selling the chemical abortion pill mifepristone in 20 states – thanks to requests from pro-life attorneys general in those states,” Reverend Graham said in a Saturday Facebook post.

Walgreens, the nation’s second-largest drugstore chain, recently announced it would not sell the abortion pill mifepristone in 20 states that have laws protecting unborn children.

Fraser Engerman, a spokesman for Walgreens, said the company has written to state attorneys general with pro-life laws, confirming that it will not distribute mifepristone through the mail or through their stores in their states.

A group of 20 Republican attorneys general wrote to Walgreens and other pharmacies such as CVS, Rite Aid and Walmart, threatening legal action if the stores violated their pro-life laws by selling abortion pills.

Graham went on to express his appreciation for all the local pharmacies in cities and towns across America that are doing the same. In this way, he said, they “support a culture of life, not death.”

One such local pharmacy is Boone Drug, “Christian owned and operated who will not dispense the abortion pill either,” Graham wrote.

The pharmacy is run by Boone Drug President Corey Furman, a personal friend of Graham’s, who follows the indisputable science that new human life begins at conception.

“At this point, you have a unique set of chromosomes and are actively moving around,” Furman noted. “At that time you are alive and at that time you are protected by the laws of the United States of America.”

“The very first document signed by our founding fathers established us as a nation and states that we all have inalienable rights, and among those rights are life – the very first listed – liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” said said Furman.

“Pray with me that God will push big drugstore chains like Albertsons, Costco, Kroger and Walmart to say no to this drug despite pressure and intimidation from Democrats in the Senate,” Graham urged his 10 million followers. on Facebook.
