Arizona Republican Links President Obama, Abortion and Nuclear Terrorism

Arizona Republican Links President Obama, Abortion and Nuclear Terrorism

Republicans have become so brazen in their attack on reproductive rights they’ve started come right out and admit their bills are not offered in good faith.

That’s what Rep. Trent Franks (R, AZ) did during an appearance on Concerned Women for America’s radio program. Franks sponsored a bill to ban abortions based on the race or sex of the fetus. But during the show Franks conceded the motivation wasn’t to stop race or sex-based abortions, but to criminalize abortions overall.

Franks is known for his extreme views, including the belief that abortion providers are deliberately trying to abort black children in order to exterminate African Americans and has even argued that black women were better off under slavery than now.

Right Wing Watch has the audio here.

The people on the pro-abortion side say, ĎTrent you have a much bigger issue and a much bigger agenda here than just sex-selection and race-selection abortion,í and I think the honest thing for me to do is say yes thatís true. I want someday for children of all sexes and all races to be protected and thatís definitely an agenda for me and I think it should be for all people in the human family. But at least we can get together on this much, that itís wrong to abort a little child because itís the wrong sex or the wrong race, if we canít come together on that then Iím afraid that any hope of commonalty and unity in this country is lost forever.

The greatest challenge we have, and Iím going to be partisan for a moment but its reality, we must change presidents. At all costs, we must change presidents. This is the most pro-abortion president in the history of the country and not only will the unborn suffer terribly, the Constitution itself will essentially be abrogated by his Supreme Court nominees, our national security will be fundamentally weakened, we will become a regional power and we will face potentially nuclear terrorism in our world and unfortunately we will step into the shadow of European socialism if this president is reelected and the Congress wonít have anything to do to stop that. The equation is very, very clear, Americans must change presidents and I pray we understand that for the sake of the unborn and essentially everything else that we care about in this country.

Yes, Franks just tied abortion to nuclear terrorism. By Franks’ logic, criminalizing abortion is the only way to prevent nuclear terrorism which means we can’t expect the attacks on women’s rights to subside, let alone end, anytime soon.

Another right wing-nut out to prove that anyone who votes for these neo-cons deserve what they get. The only problem is that the rest of us have to live with it too!

and you thought sherif Joe was our only wing-nut in Arizona. Either people don't believe me when I tell them what this moron believes or they just don't care any more. But all Arizonans out there NEED to pay attention to Franks and VOTE HIM OUT. I only have 1 vote. I can NOT do it alone.

Why does the Republican Party let people with extreme views spread their evil views, when the Public just want facts? It's time that speakers of all parties recognize this fact.

Many existing laws and regulations apply specifically to pregnant women. Several provisions of the Affordable Care Act offer new benefits for expecting mothers. Search online for "Penny Health" if you need affordable insurance for yourself or your wife.

I made a video about why abortion should be easily available, and free for any woman that wants one. Here’s the link:
