In Summer of 2012, thanks to outrage from true small-government Republicans like you, Arizona Rep. Trent Franks' D.C. 20-Week Abortion ban failed in the House. This year the proposed bill is even worse than before, extending the reach of big government far beyond the Arizona borders of Frank's jurisdiction. H.R. 1797 would ban later abortions for all women across the country with no exceptions for rape, incest or health of the woman. Citing unfounded and disproven "science," this law is unconstitutional and opposed by Americans across the country- but the anti-choice extremists pushing this dangerous legislation don't care. Sign our petition today and call out Rep. Franks for this blatant overreach of the federal government!
Oklahoma Republican state Rep. Doug Cox is a mainstream Republican, an practicing physician with 25+ years experience, and an outspoken advocate for preventative family planning. Now, in a new Op-Ed, Rep. Cox asks, "What happened to the Republican Party that felt that the government has no business being in an exam room, standing between me and my patient? Where did the party go that felt some decisions in a woman's life should be made not by legislators and government, but rather by the women, her conscience, her doctor and her God?"
