Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) said:
"More than 18,000 'very late term' abortions are performed every year on perfectly healthy unborn babies in America. These are innocent and defenseless children who can not only feel pain, but who can survive outside of the womb in most cases, and who are torturously killed without even basic anesthesia."
Rep. Franks introduces a similar bill every year. In the 113th Congress (2013–2015), his bill (H.R. 1797) passed the House on June 18, 2013 by a vote of 228-196.
On June 19, 2013, H.R. 1797 was received in the Senate, read twice, and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary. No further action was taken.
We need to tell Rep. Franks, the rest of Congress, and President Trump that this bill doesn't go far enough! If we want the ungodly and barbaric genocide we call "abortion" to end, it will take a much stronger grassroots effort and the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court! I would love to see Roe vs. Wade overturned in my lifetime!
In the meantime, this current bill is BETTER THAN NOTHING, so FOR STARTERS, let's get it passed and pressure the SENATE to also pass it, so President Trump can sign it into law. THE WOMAN'S RIGHT TO CHOOSE WHETHER OR NOT TO BRING A NEW LIFE INTO THE WORLD SHOULD END WITH HER RIGHT TO CHOOSE WHETHER OR NOT TO HAVE SEX, WITH OR WITHOUT SOME FORM OF BIRTH CONTROL!
In matters of rape and incest, why should the unborn child lose his/her right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? The mother can always CHOOSE to put that child up for ADOPTION!
Ladies, once it's determined that you are pregnant, IT IS NO LONGER JUST YOUR BODY THAT IS INVOLVED! THE NEW LIFE WITHIN YOU SHOULD BE PROTECTED BY THE SAME CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS THAT YOU ENJOY!
ABORTION = MURDER = SIN
