Senator Lindsey Graham Wants a National Abortion Ban After 15 Weeks

South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham proposed a nationwide ban on abortions after 15 weeks, a move that is surprising even to some in his own party.

Over the summer the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, essentially kicking the question of legal abortion back to the individual states; you might remember Kansas had its own vote on the issue over the summer. In Graham’s native South Carolina, the cutoff is 21 weeks and 6 days, per (the state also has a parental consent law for minors). The overturn of Roe was heralded as a huge win by anti-choice activists and other conservatives who see it as a state issue. Bolstered by the court’s decision, Senator Graham introduced legislation on Tuesday, September 13, that would ban all abortions nationwide after 15 weeks, per The New York Times.
