South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham introduced a new bill on Tuesday that would limit most late-term abortions nationwide; he’s proposing a 15-week abortion limit.
“I think we should have a law at the federal level that would say after 15 weeks, no abortion on demand — except in cases of rape, incest, [or] to save the life of the mother,” Graham said at a press conference unveiling the Protecting Pain-Capable Unborn Children from Late-Term Abortions Act alongside anti-abortion leaders.
“That’s where we should be as Americans.”
“So here’s our point: if you have to provide anesthesia to keep the baby from feeling pain to help save its life, should we as a nation be aborting babies that can feel excruciating pain from an abortion?” he added.
Democrats were quick to fire back at Graham’s proposal.
“Proposals like the one today send a clear message from MAGA Republicans to women across the country: your body, our choice,” Schumer said on the Senate floor.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the bill was “wildly out of step with what Americans believe.”
“While President Biden and Vice President Harris are focused on the historic passage of the Inflation Reduction Act to reduce the cost of prescription drugs, health care, and energy – and to take unprecedented action to address climate change – Republicans in Congress are focused on taking rights away from millions of women,” she said in a statement, adding the Biden administration and Democrats in Congress “are committed to restoring the protections of Roe v. Wade.”
