In a debate in Congress to ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, the bill’s sponsor, Rep. Trent Franks said  the incidence of rape resulting in pregnancy is low, sparking a controversy. Former RNC Chairman Michael Steele explains that the GOP needs to find a different national voice and this topic shouldn’t be an issue at the moment.  The Morning Joe panel then turns the conversation to the clash over military sexual assault cases on Capitol Hill.
