Arizona Republican Rep. Trent Franks is blessed by the outpouring of support he received for his Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which was passed by the House yesterday.

Franks issued a statement to his supporters:

Government, yesterday history was made.

Last night, for the first time in history in either Chamber of Congress, we passed the bill I authored to give affirmative protection to the unborn.

I have always served as a voice for the unborn, and I will continue to stand up against the inhumanity of what is done to them.

However, not everyone is pleased with this vote. In fact, this vote to support the unborn has angered the left and mainstream media and they are now attacking me at every angle. Below is an email Obama’s organization sent out late last night, lambasting the passage of this bill.

Government, yesterday’s vote was just the beginning.

Thank you for your support. Together, we can change Washington and protect the unborn.

Trent Franks
Pro-Life Congressman

P.S. I’ll never apologize for my 100% pro-life record. With yesterday’s historic vote, the Democrats will spend whatever it takes to destroy me, remove me from Congress, and stop me from protecting any more unborn children.

Obama’s vicious “Organizing For Action” group sent out this email about Rep. Franks and his defense of unborn children:

Friend —

This just actually happened:

The House of Representatives passed one of the most unbelievable, unconstitutional attacks on women’s health in a long time.

It’s a bill written by Republican Arizona Congressman Trent Franks, which would ban abortions after 20 weeks, except in extremely limited circumstances — a direct legislative challenge to Roe v. Wade.

And 228 members of Congress just voted for it.

Maybe they weren’t paying attention to the reaction of Americans across the country last year who rejected candidates who wanted to restrict a woman’s access to safe, affordable health care.

That’s a message they need to hear loud and clear right now — if you think politicians have no right to get between a woman and her health decisions, add your name and say you won’t stand for it.

This bill made it out of the House Judiciary Committee thanks to the votes of 23 Republicans — all men, of course.

And Rep. Franks objected when opponents tried to raise the issue of rape, saying, “…you know, the incidence of rape resulting in pregnancy are very low.”

Women made their voices very clear last year when it came to the extreme positions that some elected officials took on women’s health. But that hasn’t stopped conservative politicians from trying to repeal Obamacare, block the renewal of the Violence Against Women Act, and push an agenda that uses terminology like “legitimate rape.”

Making progress on smart health policy isn’t easy, but when Congress is spending its time actively trying to chip away at a woman’s rights, it feels impossible.

We can’t just sit back and hope it goes away — we need to speak up.

OFA supporters are going to be on the front lines reminding Congress we’re here and we care about women’s health.
