Senator Lindsey Graham is backing a federal bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks all over the country.
Less than 2% of abortions happen after 20 weeks, and many if not most of them are pregnancies that are simply too much of a risk to carry on with. This bill not only makes it harder for women in these already extremely unfortunate circumstances, but makes it harder for women dealing with serious birth defects as well as their families and doctors.
North Dakota, Arkansas, and Texas, and the House in Congress have already passed these bans. Putting this bill into the Senate just gives more support and encouragement for similar bills to pop up all over the country and, as a result, hurt women and their families.
Please tell the United States Congress not to support this bill and instead stop the 20-week abortion ban!
Dear United States Congress,
Senator Lindsey Graham is wanting to introduce a federal bill that would prohibit women from getting abortions after 20 weeks. Only 2% of abortions happen after this time and they are generally due to extreme circumstances such as major birth defects or because the pregnancies are too dangerous to continue with.
Unfortunately, these bans have already been passed in the House, Texas, Arkansas, and North Dakota. Gaining support for this bill in the Senate would only encourage this ban further and hurt women and their families.
Please do not support this bill and instead support women and their decisions.
Thank you for your time.
