Rep Ted Franks Republican-Pregnancy from rape and incest Low

Ted Franks Republican-Pregnancy from rape Low
“The incidents of rape resulting in pregnancy are very low,” Franks, R-Ariz., said during a Judiciary committee markup of his legislation today as he expressed his opposition to a Democratic amendment to allow exceptions for rape and incest.
“When you make that exception, there’s usually a requirement to report the rape within 48 hours and, in this case, that’s impossible because this is in the sixth month of gestation and that’s what completely negates and vitiates the purpose of such an amendment.”

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), who's apparently grown a little sensitive to talk about the, Republican war on women threw a bit of a tantrum on the House floor during the legislative debate.
