Trent Franks admits his bill is about more than racially-based abortions

Arizona Republican Trent Franks has been making the rounds to build support for his bill to ban the nonexistent problem of racially-based abortions.

On the Concerned Women for America radio program, Franks admitted his bill is just part of an effort to end legal, medical abortion:

The people on the pro-abortion side say, ‘Trent you have a much bigger issue and a much bigger agenda here than just sex-selection and race-selection abortion,’ and I think the honest thing for me to do is say yes that’s true.

Franks’ bill, which has never before made it out of committee, now has 86 co-sponsors, including Indiana Republicans Dan Burton, Mike Pence, Todd Rokita, and Marlin Stutzman.
