What China and Washington D.C. have in common: Unrestricted late term abortion … right up to the baby’s due date.

Washington D.C. has been funding unrestricted abortions since President Obama signed an executive order in January of 2010, which is apparently a violation of Federal Law.

Rep. Trent Franks: Abortion is ‘Greatest Human Genocide in History of Humanity’

WASHINGTON, DC (CNSNews.com) – Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) said last 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.

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.

… today, half of all black children are aborted.

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — A Republican member of Congress has released a new video showing him talking about the status of abortion in the United States. Rep.

Franks, who has sponsored legislation responding to the high rate of abortions in the African-American community, released his comments to liberal blogger Mike Stark.

“And yet today, half of all black children are aborted. Half of all black children are aborted,” Franks continues.

“Far more of the African American community is being devastated by the policies of today than were being devastated by policies of slavery. And I think, What does it take to get us to wake up?” he adds.
