Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham told CNN host Dana Bash to “stop covering” for Democrats when discussing late-term abortion Sunday morning.
“At 15 weeks you have a developed heart and lungs. And to dismember a child at 15 weeks is a painful experience, it’s barbaric, it’s out of line with the rest of the civilized world. Only North Korea and China allow abortion on-demand up to the moment of birth, except the Democratic Party,” Graham said on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday.
“What the Democratic Party proposes on abortion is barbaric. Abortion up to the moment of birth, taxpayer-funded, I think is barbaric. I welcome this debate. I think the Republican Party will be in good standing to oppose late-term abortion like most of the civilized world,” he added.
The comment came amid a discussion on former President Donald Trump’s campaign saying abortion is a state issue, while former Vice President Mike Pence recently said he does not agree with the Trump camp and that the country has an opportunity to “advance the sanctity of life” beyond just at the state level.
Bash responded to Graham’s comment: “Just for the record, Roe went up to viability. But I just want to button this up …”
“No, quit covering for these guys,” Graham said as Bash continued speaking.
“No, no, no you’re media. You keep covering for these guys. They introduced legislation that allowed abortion on-demand with taxpayer funded… up to the moment of birth. That was their position in Washington. That’s the law they want to pass and nobody in your business will talk about it. It’s barbaric.”
