Senator Lindsey Graham is planning to introduce a national bill this week that criminalizes abortions after 20 weeks. When politicians introduce these inhumane bans on abortions, they are tying the hands of doctors who want to help couples going through heartbreaking situations like major birth defects. Less than 2% of abortions occur after 20 weeks, and many of them are wanted pregnancies that are just too dangerous or unhealthy to continue.

Texas, North Dakota, and Arkansas have all passed 20-week abortion bans this year, and so has the House in Congress. If we don't make a stand against Sen. Graham's bill in the Senate, more states will be emboldened to pass these inhumane laws. We have to make sure that conservatives everywhere know we won't stand for this.

Sign the petition telling the Senate to block Grahamís inhumane and extreme abortion ban bill.

Instead of pandering to fundamentalists, how about promoting CONTRACEPTION to help cut down the need for abortions. How about finding REAL solutions.
Stop trying to get reelected at the expense of women. Ultimately IT IS THE WOMEN'S CHOICE.

Does Graham have any idea why Virginia voted against Cuccinelli? You just can't fix stupid. These Republican men just can't stay out of a woman's personal business can they?

These bans will do nothing but force abortion underground. If you are truly against abortion you are for measures that will curtail unwanted pregnancies, such as better contraception and access to the same, as well as realistic sex education. Has Graham forgotten Dr. Gosnell and his infamous abattoir? That is what will happen if the anti-choice bugnuts have their way.

I can't believe this. I don't tell them when to get a vasectomy or any other medical assistance, him and all the no good do gooders. I don't need them telling me when/what I can do. Show your head the daylight and maybe the tiny seed of a brain you have will understand.

Did I read this right....it's passed the Congress of the U.S. Only two percent of abortions after twenty weeks and this is usually because there is complications concerning the life of the mother or the fetus is not viable or ?? so the woman dies. What kind of thinking is this??

I couldn't sign as U.S. only (zip code only)

No need to criminalize, just sterilize the murderous sluts after the abortion. They'll never have to make the choice to kill a child again.
