Four House Democrats are calling for an investigation into the Center for Medical Progress as the group’s deceptively edited video attacking Planned Parenthood continues to fall apart under public scrutiny.
Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ), for example, was not “chilled” enough by the video to do anything about it when he first saw it at least a month earlier than it was released to the public, as he admitted to Roll Call.
It has little chance of passing, but Sen. David Vitter hopes to attach a destructive anti-choice amendment to a landmark non-discrimination vote, according to news reports.
Trent Franks’ federal 20-week abortion ban is a dangerous piece of legislation, based on false and completely disproven assertions about “evidence” of fetal pain. Yet many media outlets are assisting in perpetuating these lies.
The GOP bill would ban all abortions after 20 weeks, irrespective of the circumstances faced by women and their families, and removing medical decisions from the hands of women and their doctors.
D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton is taking a preemptive strike against a potential abortion ban.
Republican leaders are running far from him, but anti-choice politicians and activists couldn’t be prouder.
Roe is not the standard for abortion; women’s decision-making is. It deserves legal protection because it is a fact of women’s existence; it is not a fact because it is legally protected.
Dear Representative Trent Franks and other anti-choice politicians: Stop claiming you care about women and babies. You didn’t care about me when I was raped, and you don’t care about the suffering of American people. How dare you suggest otherwise.
H.R. 3803, sponsored by Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ), denies a woman access to a medically necessary abortion and includes no exceptions for situations where continuing a pregnancy will place at risk a woman’s health or ability to have children in the future.
