(CNSNews.com) – Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) told CNSNews.com at the March for Life on Friday that President Donald Trump was “knocking it out of the stadium” as far as pro-life issues go and that he hopes Trump keeps “doing what’s right, because if he does, history will see him as kind of an Abraham Lincoln for the unborn.”

“Right now the man is knocking it out of the stadium and I am so proud of him,” Franks said, adding that he prays Trump “doesn’t fall prey to the relentless attacks of the left and the pro-abortion groups. They have the fact that they support the indiscriminate killing of children means that they have little reticence about saying the worst possible things.”

“I just hope that he keeps marching on and doing what’s right because, if he does,history will see him as kind of an Abraham Lincoln for the unborn,” Franks said.

Franks told CNSNews.com that he believes President Trump will “appoint an excellent justice next week. Only time will tell, but I truly have the greatest of hopes.”

He also said he frequently reminds “members of Congress that our job is to uphold the Constitution, which clearly gives a right to live.”

“There’s nothing more fundamental to our Constitution than the right to live,” Franks emphasized. “And the Supreme Court should never be able to vacate that in any circumstance.”

“But we are certainly grateful that we’re about to get a Supreme Court, by the grace of God, that will uphold it as they should, if they take their oath of office as seriously as well,” he said.
