Senator Lindsey Graham is backing a federal bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks all over the… (7173 signatures on petition)
Senator Lindsey Graham must need a hobby. Despite the fact that fewer than 2 percent of abortions ever occur after 20 weeks of pregnancy, the senator is still trying to push for a ban on abortion after that point. Considering that when abortions happen that late in a pregnancy, they’re usually for medical reasons, Senator Graham is clearly willing to risk women’s health to get a handful of conservative votes.
It’s no coincidence, after all, that Senator Graham is up for reelection soon and that he’s struggling in the polls. This bill, which is based on a completely made-up medical “fact” that fetuses after 20 weeks of pregnancy can “feel pain,” is nothing more than a desperate attempt to woo uncertain conservative voters. But Senator Graham is putting real women’s lives on the l
ine — and we can’t let that happen.
Under Roe v. Wade, abortion is already illegal after 24 weeks. This is a pathetic attempt on Sen. Graham’s part to try to legislate women’s bodies for the sake of political clout.
Sen. Graham needs to get a life and stay out of ours. Tell Congress to stop the 20-week abortion ban!
