Complete title: We Are Living in the Midst of the Greatest Human Genocide in the History of Humanity, Rep. Franks Says of Legalized Abortion
(CNSNews.com) Rep. Trent Franks (R-N.M.) said on Thursday that because modern technology can reveal fetal development in the womb, Americans are starting to wake up and realize the reality that abortion ends a human life.
And I am convinced more than ever that were asking that real question, Does abortion really kill a baby? Franks said at a press conference on Capitol Hill to discuss the latest efforts by Republicans in the House to introduce legislation to defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers that receive taxpayer dollars through Title X Family Planning provisions.
Because, ladies and gentlemen, if abortion really does kill a baby, then in this, the seat of freedom, we are living in the midst of the greatest human genocide in the history of humanity, Franks said.
Franks said there are three other realities of abortion that include consequences for the unborn child, the mother and society as a whole.
No. 1, a nameless little baby dies a lonely, tragic death, Franks said. No. 2, a mother is never the same, no matter what anybody tells you; and No. 3 all the gifts that that little baby might have brought to this human family are lost forever.
Franks said he believes Americans understand that all of Gods children have that divine image stamped on their souls and then he quoted Thomas Jefferson.
It was Thomas Jefferson [who] said that the care and protection of human life, and not its destruction, is the only object of good government, Franks said.
Franks was one of more than a dozen House members who joined members of the House Pro-life Womens Caucus and pro-life advocacy groups, all of which called for legislation to defund Planned Parenthood.
The campaign has taken on new steam in light of recent undercover videos produced by the pro-life youth advocacy group Live Action that show Planned Parenthood staff at abortion clinics in numerous states telling actors who claimed to be sex traffickers seeking abortion for their underage female workers that they would not ask questions about the girls or the pimp who was with them.
Franks said the videos and revelations at the press conference about other alleged crimes documented in past videos by Live Action, including Planned Parenthood staff not reporting sexual abuse of underage girls, incredibly enlightening.
But the bottom line here is this is an organization thats been the principal force behind the killing of nearly 50 million little Americans, Franks said.
When asked by CNSNews.com how Congress could defund Planned Parenthood with a pro-abortion president like Barack Obama in the White House, Franks said the Constitution requires that all federal funding begin in the House.
I hope the people on the relevant committees, appropriations committees, have the courage to do whats right in that regard because a government is what it spends, and we are spending money killing our own children, and a country that is awash in the blood of its children cant survive in the kind of republic that we have, Franks said.
Thread by me.
BISMARCK, North Dakota, February 11, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A strong majority of lawmakers in the North Dakota House of Representatives on Friday afternoon passed a law that would make it illegal to murder any human being from the moment of their conception.
The Defense of Human Life Act, HB 1450, recognizes every human being at any stage of development as a person under state law with a right to protection.
The overwhelming community and legislative support for HB 1450 proves that North Dakota could be the first state to recognize the value and dignity of every living human being, stated Representative Dan Ruby. The Defense of Human Life Act is just common sense. Of course every human being is a person, and every innocent person should receive legal protection. I am motivated to see women and children protected by HB 1450, and I look forward to its passage in the Senate in the near future.
While the bill prohibits chemical abortifiacients such as RU-486, it does not apply to emergency contraception, or other contraception administered before a clinically diagnosable pregnancy. The bill also exempts legitimate medical procedures that may lead to the death of children in the womb when a womans life is in danger. The bill also exempts pregnant women seeking abortions from criminal prosecution.
The bill, supported by ND Right to Life, ND Life League, ND Family Alliance, ND CWFA, and the ND Catholic Conference, passed 68-25 in Fridays vote.
Daniel Woodard, a legal consultant for North Dakota Right to Life and the North Dakota Life League, told LifeSiteNews.com that the bill would put the one remaining abortion clinic in the state out of business. This bill should shut down that clinic, said Woodard.
While the bill also bans the killing of frozen embryos produced by in-vitro fertilization, Woodard said, it would leave the implementation of new regulations to the medical community. In North Dakota, the legislature has confidence in its medical professional groups to regulate itself, he said.
While pro-lifers are optimistic about the bills survival in the Senate, Woodard said that supporters would be taking no chances and continue to lobby for its passage. A vote in the Senate is expected around March 10.
North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple has not stated whether or not he plans to sign the bill.
Thank you for the ping.
It is mind blowing to me that a journalist would attempt this but it shows just how far left many are.
