Lindsey Graham repeats abortions at the time of birth

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said liberals recently overturned the Wisconsin Supreme Court because conservatives failed to present a plan to ban abortions.

In an interview Sunday, Fox News host Shannon Bream told Graham that critics say the Republican Party’s stance on abortion is causing electoral losses.

“Isn’t that what happened this week in Wisconsin, where the pro-choice candidate won by 10 points to win a seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court?” asked Bream.

“Well, I’m very pro-life, and I think being pro-life is a winning message. I oppose late-term abortions,” Graham said, changing the subject. “I have a bill to set a minimum national standard of 15 weeks. 50 out of 53 European nations ban abortion at 15 weeks. I have an exception for rape, incest and the life of the mother. In Wisconsin, you had an 1840 law that banned abortion pretty much everywhere, and the Republican Party didn’t put an alternative on the table. If you’re pro-life, you need to explain what that is. means.

Graham insisted he wanted to “protect as many babies as possible”.

“The Democratic solution to abortion is taxpayer-funded abortion up to the time of birth,” he said. “It’s barbaric. It’s like China. It’s like North Korea. We can win this issue at the polls if we come forward with reasonable positions.”

PolitiFact has previously determined that a
a similar claim by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was false.

“PolitiFact has labeled several statements making similar claims about Democrats supporting child execution as false,” the organization said. “We assess this claim as false.”
