Desperate to secure GOP primary votes next summer, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham is spearheading an effort to ban abortion after twenty weeks of pregnancy.
“My record on being a pro-life senator, member of Congress is clear,” Graham said promoting his bill on ‘Fox News Sunday.’
“I am proud to lead this charge,” he added. “This is a debate worthy of a great democracy. When do you become you: At twenty weeks of a pregnancy? What is the proper role of the government in protecting that child?”
Actually “you become you” the moment your dad’s sperm fertilizes your mother’s egg … a.k.a. the moment of conception.
That’s also when you become endowed by your creator with “certain inalienable rights,” chief among them the right not to have your life terminated.
At least that’s the way we see it …
The U.S. House also sees it that way … well, after twenty weeks (according to legislation it passed back in June).
Graham? All he sees is legions of gullible, single-issue social conservative voters …
UPDATE: Oh, and for all of you single-issue abortion voters, each of Graham’s announced 2014 primary opponents – Upstate businessman Richard Cash, Lowcountry businesswoman Nancy Mace and S.C. Sen. Lee Bright – are all pro-life.
