A Nebraska GOP lawmaker is planning to introduce a bill that would criminalize a common medical procedure used after a miscarriage and during second-trimester abortions.
The Ohio Senate on Wednesday approved a ban on abortion after 20 weeks’ gestation only hours after it went through committee.
“I can promise you a debate in 2015, and a vote,” Graham said at a press conference Thursday.
The GOP-majority Wisconsin State Senate on Tuesday passed a bill to ban abortion at 20 weeks post-fertilization, a measure that Gov. Scott Walker has pledged he will sign if it gets to his desk.
State Sen. Lee Bright (R) attempted to filibuster the bill because he claimed the amendments were too lenient on pregnant people.
South Carolina state Sen. Lee Bright, an ardent anti-choice Republican, filibustered a bill Thursday to ban abortion 20 weeks post-fertilization. The measure, he said, is too lenient because it included exceptions for rape, incest, and fetal anomaly.
The Republican-dominated U.S. House voted 242 to 184 Wednesday to pass a bill that would ban abortion after 20 weeks nationwide, with no exceptions for a woman’s health or fetal anomalies, and with rape and incest exceptions that advocates call callous and cruel.
Gov. Scott Walker, a 2016 Republican presidential hopeful, said in March that he would sign such a bill if it came to his desk.
