Do Robert Jeffress and Jerry Falwell, Jr. Think Planned Parenthood Does Wonderful Things?

Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church, Dallas, TX, and Jerry Falwell, Jr. are two of the most prominent evangelicals in America to lay hands on Donald Trump and endorse his candidacy for the Presidency.

Falwell, Jr. has gone so far as to claim Trump is a great Christian. According to Trump, Jeffress has said the same and Jeffress has not denied it.

Last night in South Carolina, Donald Trump defended Planned Parenthood, an organization that has covered up child sex trafficking. Trump wants to keep federal funding for Planned Parenthood because it does “wonderful things.”

Do Jeffress and Falwell, Jr. think Planned Parenthood does wonderful things? Both men have said Donald Trump would be an ideal and great President. To be sure, Planned Parenthood kept its funding under George W. Bush, but Bush never advocated for that funding and never, ever called it a wonderful thing.

Jeffress and Falwell, Jr. have endorsed a man who actively wants to keep funding an organization that covers up sex trafficking, harvests the organs of infants, and performs abortions. Their candidate for President calls that organization a wonderful thing.

I think Jeffress’s congregants and students under Falwell, Jr. deserve to know if the men agree with the man they call a Christian who’d make a great President.
