Denying Women Abortion Rights Just Like Ending Holocaust And Slavery Says GOP Congressman

Tea Party Republican Trent Franks teamed up with hate group head Tony Perkins and announced that he believes denying women their constitutionally-protected right to choose to have an abortion — or not — is just like ending the Holocaust and slavery. Franks, a birther and climate change denier, somehow is also the Chairman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice.

LOOK: Every Lawmaker At House Hearing On Nationwide 20-Week Abortion Ban Is A Man

Today, Franks held a hearing — of course, the only lawmakers who attended were male — on his bill that would create a federal law banning abortion after 20 weeks. Similar measures have already been struck down as unconstitutional, but heck, when you’re ending the Holocaust and slavery, why let details like the Constitution matter, right?

Yesterday, however, Franks, Perkins, and anti-choice activist Lila Rose spoke on a Family Research Council webcast.

“We are the ones that rushed into Eastern Europe and arrested the Holocaust, we are the ones that said no more to slavery after thousands of years, and by the grace of God, we’re going to be the ones that say that we’re going to protect our own children,” Franks, a six-term Congressman from Arizona, told his cohorts.

Responding to Perkins’ asking what happens if his bill (which, remember, is both unconstitutional and will never pass the Democratically-controlled Senate, nor will President barack Obama ever sign it) fails, Franks responded:

“I would suggest to you that we undermine everything that America was ever dreamed of to be and we step into that Sumerian night where the light of compassion has gone out and the survival of the fittest finally prevails over man…If we turn our backs on this, I’m afraid we’ve broken the back of what America really is.”

He knows a good deal about slavery, as it is advocated in the same book that allows him to keep his Stepford wife in check, being no more than a "help mate" to his pristine paternal pathology. Only misogynists hate women so much they would not have them take full possession of their own bodies. As with homosexuality and the eating of pork (what the hey, these guys are cafeterial religionists), the only justification can be scrip your from the Buy Bull, making religion the last refuge of the scoundrel. The main reason the woman in red will not challenge this pathetic pol is that she was brought up in the same "faith." Children are brainwashed in childhood to believe in many things, God, the tooth fairy, the Easter Bunny, and Moses as an historical figure. (He was not.) By the time they grow up, hearing "Bless you" when she sneezes and "Guess God did not want that to happen" daily in what Fritz Perls called "Chickenshit" commerce, the poor hand maid stays mum, pregnant, and in the kitchen, unless of course hubby is a megachurch pastor, in which case they even have porch slaves.
