If you’ve been on Twitter today, you’ve probably noticed liberals freaking out about Lindsey Graham and his proposed abortion legislation.
Graham proposed a national ban on abortions after 15 weeks.
The bill includes exceptions for rape, incest, and major health risks for the mother.
In spite of these exceptions, liberals have taken this golden opportunity to misconstrue the bill in order to rile of their voter base before the mid-terms.
Cue the false claims that republicans want to “control women’s bodies.”
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre even called the proposal “an extreme piece of legislation.”
God forbid these people lose their rights to murder the unborn…

Axios reports on Graham’s proposed bill:
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) introduced a bill on Tuesday that would ban abortion nationally after 15 weeks.
Driving the news: “We will introduce legislation … to get America in a position at the federal level I think is fairly consistent with the rest of the world,” Graham said Tuesday in announcing the legislation.
The legislation includes exceptions for situations involving rape, incest or risks to the life and physical health of the mother.
Sen. Lindsey Graham announced legislation to end abortion access across the U.S. after 15 weeks with limited exceptions in the cases of rape, incest or to save a pregnant person's life.

Check out the liberal meltdown on Twitter:
It’s official. Republicans want a national abortion ban. It was never about state rights. It’s about controlling women and mandating pregnancies.
— Rep. Eric Swalwell (@RepSwalwell) September 13, 2022
The Republican Party is introducing a NATIONAL abortion ban.
It was NEVER about “states' rights.”

Tonight, I'll be sworn into Congress. But Lindsey Graham & GOP extremists JUST introduced a national abortion ban.
So, right here, right now, no excuses: We're going to fight like hell for every single seat. Now and in November, choice is on the ballot.

Every single media outlet should be talking about the fact that Republicans are introducing a bill to ban abortion nationwide today.
It was never about “states’ rights.” If they win in November they will try to ban abortion in all 50 states.

I've said this before and will say it again. The movement that drives abortion policy in the GOP genuinely believes life starts at conception and obviously just choosing to allow mass infanticide is never going to be acceptable. They won't stop.

Hillary Clinton even climbed out of her cave to comment:
Republicans aren't even trying to hide it. If they re-take the House in November, they will impose a national abortion ban at 15 weeks. https://t.co/CcAXSOXOsY

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre used the word “extreme” several times in less than one minute to describe Graham’s legislation:
REPORTER: Senator @LindseyGrahamSC's bill "calls for a 15 week ban. Even amongst people who would like abortion to be legal…there actually is support for that."

What a hateful bunch of liars:
BREAKING: Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre shreds Lindsey Graham's national abortion ban, says MAGA is "focused on taking rights away from millions" while Biden is focused on issues like reducing the cost of prescriptions, healthcare, and infrastructure. RT TO THANK BIDEN!

Lindsey Graham's nationwide 15-week abortion ban is a dangerous escalation of the GOP’s plan to destroy women’s health care.
We won't let it pass, but we see what's coming if the theocrats take over Congress.
Pro-freedom Americans: stay vigilant.

FUCK YOU LINDSEY GRAHAM, YOU MEWLING PIECE OF SHIT HYPOCRITICAL COWARD.
