A Legislation Introduced to Ban Abortion Nationwide after 15 Weeks

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) introduced legislation to install a nationwide ban on abortion after 15 weeks. The message from some other GOP legislators on the issue is that they prefer it to be a state decision. Because of the Supreme Court’s recent decision on Roe, abortion currently is a state decision, leading to conflicting state laws which have led to both great variability as well as confusion, both on the part of physicians and other healthcare providers as well as consumers.
