‘I wish Republicans would value life outside the womb more’: Billy Graham’s granddaughter laments GOP hypocrisy

Rev. Billy Graham’s granddaughter called out GOP hypocrisy during a discussion on MSNBC Wednesday noting that they have trouble valuing life outside of the womb, immigrants, refugees and orphans.

MSNBC host Yasmin Vossoughian noted recent reports that after President Donald Trump tried to deter immigrants from coming to the United States by kidnapping their children and putting them in concentration camps, there are still over 500 children who haven’t been able to be returned to their families.

It isn’t an issue that Rev. Graham’s granddaughter Jerushah Dunford said should break the hearts of everyone, “especially evangelicals.” Still, it hasn’t been an issue for people of faith who claim to worship Jesus Christ and read scripture.

“Scripture is so clear about how we should handle refugees and orphans,” she noted. “It’s not an option to turn a blind eye to these kinds of things.”

She went on to talk about the abortion issue, which she said often becomes the focus of Christians claiming to support “life.”

“For me, pro-life is — does not just mean life inside the womb,” she explained. “It’s things we talked about at the border, health care, poverty, homelessness. All of those things, if you’re going to be pro-life, you need to be pro-adoption and pro-foster care. I wish the Republicans would value life outside the womb more, and I wish the Democrats would value life inside the womb more.”

Dunford has endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden for president.

‘You don’t expect to be so vilified’: The strange turn the pandemic took for public health workers

Published

Remember in the spring, the pot-banging? People would come out on their porches in the evening to rally for the health workers — to say, collectively for just a minute or two, that we were thankful for the effort.That spirit seems years away to Anna Halloran.“There’s a large segment of the population that hates the health department right now, that thinks we’re lying,” says Halloran, a communicable disease epidemiologist in Spokane, Washington.Halloran works for the Spokane Regional Health District, which recently fired its top health officer, Dr. Bob Lutz.
