Lindsey Graham is trying to create nationwide abortion restrictions. The Republican Senator just introduced a bill called the "Protecting Pain-Capable Unborn Children from Late-Term Abortions Act," which aims to ban abortions nationally after 15 weeks. This ban likely includes abortion pills, which are considered the best options in states where the procedure is more restricted.
We must fight this offensive attack on bodily autonomy by demanding that Congress pass federal abortion protection, now. The repeal of Roe v. Wade has already begun to show the devastating, fatal consequences for people seeking to end their pregnancies.

This is Graham's fifth version of the bill, and it looks like even Graham's fellow Republicans aren't pleased with the proposal. Since the fall of Roe v. Wade, more and more Republicans are changing their opinions on abortions -- especially as the midterm elections near. Graham himself confessed that he knows the bill likely has no chance in a Democratically controlled Congress, but he's playing a long game. "Maybe less than a decade from now this will become law," he said.
This is why Congress must act now. This is only the first of many continued attacks on federal abortion rights, and people are already being impacted all across the country. Sign the petition to demand Congress pass federal abortion protections!
