Franks: Incidences of rape resulting in pregnancy are low

Jun. 12, 2013
At a House Judiciary Committee meeting on Wednesday, Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), whose measure banning abortions after 20 weeks was being considered by the committee, argued against a Democratic amendment to make exceptions for rape and incest. Franks suggested that pregnancy from rape is rare, saying, “before, when my friends on the left side of the aisle here tried to make rape and incest the subject — because, you know, the incidence of rape resulting in pregnancy are very low.”
