Franklin Graham calls abortion-themed ice cream 'disgusting'

by Tola Mbakwe

The advocacy group NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon has partnered with ice cream shop What's The Scoop? in Portland, Orgegon to sell a new 'Rocky Roe v. Wade' flavour.

The ice cream, available for a limited time, is named after the landmark US Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade which legalised abortion in 1973.

The grassroots feminist organisation, which advocates for abortion care and works to elect pro-choice officials, has encouraged people to order the icecream by the pint to "help defend reproductive freedom".

Evangelist, Graham has called the charity "absolutely frantic" and said it's trivializing a life and death issue.

He added in a Facebook post: "These activists want everyone to believe abortion is a choice or a woman's right - even something to celebrate. But it's not. Abortion is murdering a child in its mother's womb. The Bible says, "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil ..." (Isaiah 5:20)."

The pro-abortion rights group has held rallies to stop Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's selection for a US Supreme Court judge, from being confirmed.

It's feared Judge Kavanaugh could be instrumental in overturning abortion laws in the country.
