Graham weighed in last week as he introduced the bill which has no chance of passing either of the chambers of Congress since they are under Democratic control.

Florida’s two U.S. senators–Marco Rubio and Rick Scott–joined more than 40 of their Republican colleagues in the U.S. Senate to back U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham’s, R-SC, “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” which would offer “protections for unborn children at 20 weeks after fertilization, a point at which there is significant scientific evidence that abortion inflicts tremendous pain on the unborn.”

Graham weighed in last week as he introduced the bill which has no chance of passing either of the chambers of Congress since they are under Democratic control.

“I am proud to once again introduce the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” Graham said. “There are only seven countries that allow wholesale abortions at the 20-week period, including China and North Korea. The United States should not be in that club.

“I don’t believe abortion, five months into pregnancy, makes us a better nation,” Graham continued. “America is at her best when she’s standing up for the least among us, and the sooner we pass this legislation into law, the better. We are on the right side of history.”

Both Rubio and Scott expressed their support for Graham’s proposal.

“It’s unconscionable that protecting the life of a newborn who survived a botched abortion is a partisan issue today, yet it speaks volumes about how radical extremism has become mainstream in today’s Democratic Party,” Rubio said. “Long gone are the days when Democrats preached that abortion should be ‘safe, legal, and rare.’ The Biden administration believes American taxpayers should fund abortions in foreign nations, and the Democrat Party…supports legal infanticide. I will always be a champion of the right to life — the most sacred and fundamental of all human rights.”

“In the United States, we believe in the sanctity of life and the value that each child brings into this world. Although not yet born, these babies are capable of feeling pain, and we must work to protect their lives just the same. I hope all my colleagues join me in protecting life and pass this legislation quickly,” Scott said.

Graham’s bill, which the South Carolina Republican has introduced three times before, was sent to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee.
