We Did It Already
Senator Lindsey Graham recently introduced a bill that bans abortions after five months of pregnancy, similar to legislation state Senator Jason Rapert sponsored and got passed in Arkansas last spring.
Some are criticizing the move, saying Graham “wants to be re-elected” and that he’s using this issue to woo the voters. However, companion legislation passed the House back in June on a 228-196 vote.
Senator John Boozman is a co-sponsor, as well as Senators John Barrasso (WY), Roy Blunt (MO), Richard Burr (NC), Saxby Chambliss (GA), Dan Coats (IN), Thad Cochran (MS), Tom Coburn (OK), Mike Crapo (ID), Ted Cruz (TX), John Cornyn (TX), Mike Enzi (WY), Deb Fischer (NE), Jeff Flake (AZ), Charles Grassley (IA), Orrin Hatch (UT), John Hoeven (ND), Johnny Isakson (GA), Mike Johanns (NE), Ron Johnson (WI) James Inhofe (OK), Mitch McConnell (KY), Jerry Moran (KS), John McCain (AZ), James Risch (ID), Pat Roberts (KS), Marco Rubio (FL), Richard Shelby (AL), Tim Scott (SC), John Thune (SD), David Vitter (LA), and Roger Wicker (MS).
