Evangelist Franklin Graham in a Facebook post on Saturday praised Walgreens for pledging not to sell the chemical abortion pill mifepristone in 20 states at the request of their attorneys general, while at the same time criticizing Democrats for "bullying" pharmacies into selling the drugs.

“I’m thankful that Walgreens will not be selling the chemical abortion pill mifepristone in 20 states — thanks to the demands of pro-life Attorneys General in those states,” Rev. Graham said.

The Republican attorneys general wrote to Walgreens and other pharmacies such as CVS, Rite Aid, and Walmart, requesting their locations in those states not sell the drug and informing them that lawsuits will follow if they do.

Graham also praised local pharmacies, like Boone Drug, which is owned by his longtime friend Corey Furman, and has said it will not sell the drug.

“At that point you have a unique set of chromosomes, and you are actively moving about,” Furman has noted. “At that point you’re alive, and at that point you are protected by the laws of the United States of America.”

“Pray with me that God will move major pharmacy chains like Albertsons, Costco, Kroger, and Walmart to say no to this drug despite pressure and bullying from Democrats in the Senate,” Graham asked of his 10 million Facebook followers.
