The Todd Akin Agenda

After convincing themselves that the trial of Kermit Gosnell was going to turn America against a woman’s right to choose, Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) is pushing an unconstitutional bill to ban all abortions after the 20th week.

This bill is not quite as bad as the personhood bills pushed by former rep Todd Akin and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), which ban all abortions and most contraception, but it’s exactly the kind of bill that needlessly alienates women that the GOP told itself that it was going to avoid.
