( - Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) says he’s focused on is defunding Planned Parenthood, which he calls “an abortion corporation.”

When asked by about the issue in Trump’s 100 day agenda that he’s most eager to get started on, Franks replied, “Well I guess it would be defunding Planned Parenthood.”

“I know that issue is about 50/50 in this country, but the reality is Planned Parenthood is an abortion corporation,” Franks said. “They try to lie to the public and say that only a few percentage points of their activities are abortion – but the overwhelming focus of their organization is killing children.”

“Of course, we now know they sell body parts for profit too,” Franks continued. “And I just feel like the sands of time ought to blow over the Capitol dome before we give one more penny of hard-earned taxpayer dollars to an organization that focuses on murdering the coming generations.”
