Rev. Graham: Register to Vote, ‘Otherwise We Will Lose Our Country’ – By Michael W. Chapman (CNS News) / Feb 12 2020
Expressing shock and disappointment that some presidential contenders, such as socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), support abortion on demand, no restrictions, and Marxist ideas such as nationalization of industry and Cuban-style health care, Rev. Franklin Graham urged Christians “to pray for our nation” and the “upcoming elections.” He added that Americans need to register to vote, “otherwise we will lose our country.”
In a Feb. 12 post on Facebook, the evangelical leader said, “The Democratic Party has changed so much that it’s hard to believe. Just a few days ago Bernie Sanders declared that ‘being pro-choice is an absolutely essential part of being a Democrat.’ That’s shocking and disturbing.”

“He also vowed, ‘I will never nominate any person to the Supreme Court or the federal courts in general who is not 100% pro Roe v. Wade,'” said Graham, son of the late Pastor Billy Graham.
“He went further to write, ‘We have got to codify Roe v. Wade into law and significantly expand funding for Planned Parenthood,'” noted Graham. Where is the voice of those in the Democratic Party who disagree? Where’s the outcry against this and the acceptance of socialism?”
