The man who shot and critically injured Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA, last week had a hit list of pro-life members of Congress that he apparently intended to assasinate.
The Daily Caller reported this on Friday, citing "multiple sources with intimate knowledge of the situation."
The congressmen that James T. Hodgkinson targeted were:
- Rep. Mo Brooks, R-AL
- Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-SC
- Rep. Trent Franks, R-AZ
- Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH
- Rep. Scott DesJarlais, R-TN
- Rep. Morgan Griffith, R-VA
All six have co-sponsored the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban late-term abortions when a baby can feel pain. Franks is sponsoring the 2017-2018 version of the bill.
They all voted to defund Planned Parenthood via the American Health Care Act on May 4.
Duncan, Franks, and Jordan are all co-sponsors of a bill that would ban abortions after a baby's heartbeat can be detected. The human heart starts to beat around 21 days after conception.
Franks is one of the most well-known, outspoken pro-life congressmen.
Duncan and Brooks were at the baseball practice where Hodgkinson opened fire.
