    that a guy who gets battered every two years by unsuccessful opponents, for his pro- life views, turns out to be one of the most staunch and consistent movers of measures which help and, I dare say, saves, so many womens’ lives: you have to applaud the dogged determination and often unheralded results this man has achieved over the yearsto protect and save women and children, here, and worldwide. His work with anti- human trafficking, anti child abduction, domestic violence prevention, and yes, respect for the unborn, makes me proud to be in his district, finally, away from Frankie, the hypocrite!
