Graham rolls out 15 week abortion ban!

E-mail Print PDF
Lindsey GrahamRepublicans on Tuesday introduced legislation to ban abortion nationwide after 15 weeks of a pregnancy, their next play on the hot-button issue after the Supreme Court reversed Roe v. Wade and overturned federal abortion rights.

Democrats have been warning voters that Republicans will try to ban abortion across the country if they win back control of Congress in November, and Tuesday’s announcement will likely become a major talking point for the party with Election Day less than two months away.

The GOP bill is called the “Protecting Pain-Capable Unborn Children from Late-Term Abortions Act.” It’s being introduced by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.).

Graham has introduced a version of the bill in every Congress over the past decade, only with a longer 20-week limit. The bill contains exceptions for rape, incest and cases where the life of the mother is threatened.
