Republicans go all-in on faith with pro-life activist graphically describing abortion procedures and calling Planned Parenthood 'racist' and Billy Graham's granddaughter accusing Democrats of letting boys 'use girls' locker rooms'

On night No. 2 of the Republican National Convention, the party went all-in on its pro-life stance, by featuring a former Planned Parenthood employee who called the group's founder 'racist' and graphically described abortion procedures. 
The party also doubled down on being anti-trans, with Billy Graham's grand-daughter Cissie Graham Lynch blasting Democrats for allowing boys to 'use girls' locker rooms,' as the opposing party has tried to protect transgender Americans' rights.   
Abby Johnson, who worked eight years at Planned Parenthood but is now a 'pro-life activist' said she was appalled by the organization because they continue to honor Margaret Sanger, 'a racist who believed in eugenics.'

'Her goal when founding Planned Parenthood was to eradicate minorities,' Johnson said. 
Sanger's connection to the national abortion provider has been controversial in recent years, with Planned Parenthood of Greater New York removing Sanger's name from its Manhattan health clinic last month due to her 'harmful connections in the eugenics movement.'   
'Today, almost 80% of Planned Parenthood abortion facilities are strategically placed in minority neighborhoods; And every year Planned Parenthood celebrates its racist roots by presenting the Margaret Sanger award,' Johnson said in her speech.  
Johnson said that while at Planned Parenthood she was pushed to 'sell' more abortions. 
'When I pushed back, underscoring Planned Parenthood’s public-facing goal of decreasing abortions, I was reprimanded, and told, "Abortion is how we make our money,"' Johnson said. 
The former employee then recalled her 'tipping' point, when she watched a physician perform an ultrasound-guided abortion. 
'Nothing prepared me for what I saw on the screen - an unborn baby fighting back, desperate to move away from the suction,' she recalled. 'And I'll never forget what the doctorsaid next, "Beam me up, Scotty."'

'The last thing I saw was a spine twirling around in the mother’s womb before succumbing to the force of the suction,' she said. 
Graham Lynch had taken the stage minutes before Johnson and also railed against Democrats support of abortion and for the trans community. 
Graham Lynch said that during the Obama-Biden administration, 'Democrats tried to make faith organizations pay for abortion inducing drugs.' 
'Democrats tried to force adoption agencies to violate their deeply held beliefs,' she said, alluding to Democrats making adoption for gay couples more accessible. 
'Democrats pressured schools to allow boys to compete in girls' sports and use girls' locker rooms,' Graham Lynch said, a knock at Democrats trying to push for policies that would allow trans Americans to use restrooms that match their gender identities.
