PLANO, Texas— Dr. Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, issues the following statement following Tuesday’s passage of the Reproductive Health Act in the New York Senate, which legalizes late-term abortions and provides broad measures for performing them in the state:
“Make no mistake about it: Those who are applauding the passage of New York’s so-dubbed Reproductive Health Act are not celebrating and promoting a step forward in women’s health rights. They are celebrating cold-blooded murder. This act is nothing short of a license to kill unborn babies, even when they could survive outside the womb. That this law was received with such exuberance by so many people should spur us to action, realizing that it has never been more important to defend the sanctity of human life and to fight for those who cannot defend themselves.”
Dr. Jack Grahamis the pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, one of the largest and fastest growing churches in America. He is also a noted author, and his PowerPoint Ministries broadcasts are available in 92 countries and are heard daily in more than 740 cities. He has served as president of the Southern Baptist Convention and the honorary chairman of the 2015 National Day of Prayer.
