PPAO and BRO Condemn Franklin Graham Rally in Salem

PPAO and BRO Condemn Franklin Graham Rally in Salem

Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon and Basic Rights Oregon issued the following joint statement in response to Franklin Graham's Decision America rally today in Salem:

"As progressive organizations, we condemn Franklin Graham's efforts to bring his hateful campaign to Oregon, particularly after this month's tragic massacre in Orlando.

"Franklin Graham has a long history of attacking the humanity of LGBTQ Americans - claiming that Satan is behind pro-equality advocacy, accusing LGBTQ people of 'recruiting' children and supporting Russia's draconian laws against 'gay propaganda.' His supporters include Oregon Life United, a group of extremists who are working to amend the Oregon Constitution to restrict low-income Oregonians from accessing safe, legal abortion.

"Oregonians overwhelmingly reject the politics of division that Franklin Graham and Oregon Life United represent. We stand in solidarity against the toxic rhetoric that breeds acts of terrorism and hatred based on who people love or who they are. Enough is enough."
