Either way, they did not wish to discuss his use of them to make him a father.
If Franks is so against abortion - why doesn't he adopt children. He already has two with his wife, Josephine. Why does he want to knock up other women?
That is covered by his right to privacy, his choice of staffers to try and persuade is not.

3. Trent Franks (R-Arizona): You Say "Tomato," He Says "Abortion"
Arizona Congressman Trent Franks is the John Coltrane of Congress. He's managed to spend the past decade in Washington playing but one note: an extreme take on abortion.
He may be the country's most irrelevant congressman, passing exactly zero of the 45 bills he's sponsored. Few have been taken seriously enough to even merit a vote.
As Frank sees it, his job isn't to move America forward. It's to talk, talk, and talk some more about abortion.
"Abortion has been his one and only issue," says Arizona Democratic Party spokesman Frank Camacho. "That's his main claim to fame."
This proved true during a recent House debate on fiscal policy, when Illinois Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. — who recently pleaded guilty to blowing $750,000 in campaign contributions on his wife and himself — asked whether anyone could explain a balanced-budget amendment. Franks eagerly offered his assistance. "I'll give it a shot," he said.
He then proceeded to talk for three minutes about — what else? — abortion. And Nazis.
Franks has called Obama the "abortion president," and once claimed that abortion laws were more devastating to blacks than slavery.
But his zealotry hasn't been particularly effective. Unable to pass national legislation, he lowered his sights to the capital city, pushing a law that would ban women in Washington, D.C., from having an abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
When D.C. residents objected in a novel way — by lining up outside Franks' office and asking the Arizona legislator they sarcastically called "mayor" to fix potholes — Franks clumsily sidestepped. "District of Columbia is not the issue," he said. "It's the pain of the child."
The protesters, however, had little to fear. The bill soon died on the House floor. Like everything else Franks does, it was merely one more piece of amateur theater in an ongoing show with no end.

Wow, what a weirdo!
He did pursue adoption. He wrote a letter of what they had gone through years ago.
Why then approach private surrogates that were staffers? He knew the procedure to legally adopt.
Trent Franks to Staffer: OMG, didn’t know you were pregnant
Staffer : I’m not.
TF: would you like to be?
Read his letter sharing their experience.
If Franks is "innocent" - why did he resign? There is obviously more to the story.
