Franklin Graham Rips Chelsea Clinton for Saying Abortions Added Trillions to Economy
If there was ever any doubt about where the heart of the compassionate left lies, this should clear that up for good.
When it comes to the ugliness of abortion, liberals throw everything under the bus — including the lives of the unborn.
In this case, Chelsea Clinton showed her true colors as she expresses her preference for women to have abortions because it is, in her opinion, financially advantageous for the economy.
Clinton made these comments at the pro-abortion event “Rise Up for Roe” in New York City on Aug. 11, according to the Christian Post.
“It is not a disconnect fact that American Women entering the labor force from 1970 to 2009 added $3.5 trillion dollars to our economy. The net, new entrance of women, that is not disconnected from the fact that Roe became the law of the land in January of 1973,” Clinton said.
“So, whatever it is that people say they care about, I think you can connect to this issue. Of course I would hope that they would care about our equal rights and dignity to make our own choices, but it that is not sufficiently persuasive hopefully some these other arguments you are hearing expressed so beautifully, will be.”
If her statement leaves you cold, you may not be alone. But it certainly fired up evangelist Franklin Graham and he expressed his outrage on Facebook.
“Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton, claims that legalizing abortion added trillions of dollars to the economy. What a lie. Hitler probably also claimed that killing the Jews would be good for their economy. Legalizing abortion hasn’t added anything to our country, it has only taken away. It has cost this nation more than 60 million lives—lives precious to God. Just think of the contribution these people would have made. There will be another high cost. I believe God will judge America for allowing the heinous murder of our own children in the womb. And to everyone who has had an abortion, that is murder in God’s eyes. But I am happy to tell you the wonderful news that God will forgive you. He can take the shame and guilt you have been carrying around all these years and take it away if you are willing to turn to Him and put your faith and trust in His Son Jesus Christ. Not only will He forgive you, He will save you for eternity—and you will be reunited one day in Heaven with that child.”

Conservative Erick Erickson also weighed in, to compare Clinton’s defense of abortion with the antebellum defense of American slavery. Clinton tried, weakly, to defend herself.
Hi Erick – protecting reproductive health rights is first about protecting women’s human rights and health. From 1973-1985, American women’s deaths from abortion declined 5-fold. And, reproductive rights are about women’s economic rights and agency. It’s … not the same at all. https://t.co/sM7egoZTzu

Can the life of an unborn child be less valuable than that of illegals who cross our borders in search of prosperity?
It’s truly amazing how liberals can display such disrespect for the dignity of human life when they so vehemently advocate for, in the name of compassion, the illegal aliens who break our laws and drain our social programs.
It could be fair to say these unborn children victimized by abortion were also victims of leftist selective compassion.
