Rep. Bobby Franklin: Abortion Makes U.S. Comparable To Qaddafi Regime

According to Rep. Bobby Franklin (R-GA), the United States is comparable to the regime of Libyan dictator Muammar el-Qaddafi because of the availability of abortion. Writing in his Facebook profile, Franklin associated it with U.S. assault on Libyan air defenses:

"This is nothing but pure evil. How would we like it if other countries launched attacks upon these United States because of our regime's war on the unborn? May the Lord have mercy on us!"

Franklin has introduced bills that amount to a declaration of war on women's privacy, civil liberties and reproductive rights. Women who miscarry could potentially be subject to a criminal investigation; victims of rape would no longer be known as "victims":

Legislation introduced to the Georgia legislature by Franklin last month would classify the removal of a fetus from a woman for any reason other than to produce a live birth or to remove a dead fetus as "prenatal murder." Physicians indicted for alleged "prenatal murder" would have their license suspended until they were found innocent of the crime.

In addition, law enforcement authorities would be required to investigate the cause of fetal death in cases where a miscarriage occurs without attendance at a medical facility.

State Rep. Franklin also introduced a bill mandating that victims of rape, stalking, harassment, and family violence be re-classified as "accusers."

On other matters, Franklin has introduced a bill to eliminate drivers' licenses, since they infringe on personal freedom, and was opposed to gays in the military since they are comparable to "unrepentant drug dealer[s]."
