Rep. Franks: ‘Obama…Will Go Down in History as the Abortion President’

Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) said that President Barack Obama will “go down in history as the abortion president,” adding that when Dr. Kermit Gosnell–a Philadelphia abortionist who delivered babies alive and then killed them by snipping their spinal cords with scissors–was convicted and sent to prison, the president “said not a word.”

“President Obama, unfortunately and tragically, will go down in history as the abortion president,” Franks told “This is a president that has uncharacteristically supported abortion-on-demand, in all its applications. He has voted twice against a bill that would have protected children born alive in an abortion.”

“And when Kermit Gosnell did all the horrible things that he did,” Franks continued, “the president of the United States, the ostensible protector of human dignity in this country said not a word. I am profoundly disappointed in him.”
