It's called the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act.  Introduced by Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., it will outlaw abortions performed on the basis of sex or race.  The bill doesn't specify how they know abortions are happening on the basis of race, but they want to ban it.

Anyone believe this won't be used to erode abortion rights using legal terminology?  Hmm.  Me, neither.

Arizona is the first state to ban abortions on the basis of sex or race, although no one has said how many abortions they know stem from that.  Not only that, but Franks has stated to the press, specifically The Daily Courier, that this is part of a scheme to ban abortion rights.  "People will say I have a greater agenda — and they are right.  I hope for a day when all children, regardless of race or color, all children because they are children will be protected.”

If you are wondering why, when it comes to rights issues, no one sees grey areas, it's all or nothing, it's because of things like this forcing them be viewed as such.

Don't let Franks put us on that slippery slope.
