The Wisconsin Democratic gubernatorial nominee Tony Evers claims that having an abortion and the removal of one’s tonsils are similar in severity.
The gubernatorial nominee will be facing Wisconsin incumbent Governor Scott Walker who is a staunch pro-life advocate and has been in office since 2011.
“We need to have the Medicaid money be available for all people and restricting it because of a certain procedure, whether it’s a tonsillectomy or any other procedure, seems to me a foolhardy thing to do,” Evers told The Weekly Standard.
In response to the comments made by Tony Evers, Franklin Graham stated on Facebook;
“What does it say about our culture when it is acceptable to compare an abortion to a tonsillectomy?” Graham asked. “That’s pretty unbelievable.”
He continued: “An abortion is the killing of a child in the womb, intentionally ending a life. Taxpayers paying for tonsil removal is not at all the same as paying for an abortion. Far too many people who want to be governors, legislators, professors, and teachers in this nation have fallen prey to a culture of death philosophy. They are denying the worth of millions of children made in the image of God.”
