Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) introduced legislation this week that would ban abortions nationally after 15 weeks of pregnancy, angering Republican voters who see the move as a virtue signal that could help Democrats in the midterms.
“We’re gonna have an election in 2022. The inflation report today was, in my view, bad news for the American consumer,” Graham declared. “Inflation’s not getting better anytime soon. In fact it’s going to get worse. Crime is on the rise. We have a broken border. But having said all that, the abortion issue in America has always been part of our political discourse. It will continue to be.”
The abysmal approval ratings of the Joe Biden administration have led many GOP voters to believe that the Democrats could lose the House and Senate in 2022.
However, the reaction from Democrat and independent voters to the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade earlier this year has shown that abortion could be a galvanizing issue against Republicans, as polling data shows banning abortion is not a high priority for most Americans.
Additionally, many states have already implemented state abortion bans following the SCOTUS ruling, leading many voters to wonder why Graham is not choosing to focus on the numerous failures of the Biden regime.
I’m 100% pro life.
This decision on when life begins belongs to the states. Same for what constitutes a marriage. https://t.co/9hrPuhwFKm

I’m pro-life and I’m fuckin pissed off at @LindseyGrahamSC. SCOTUS rightly overturned Roe to send this decision to the states and he’s trying to vote on a nationwide ban right before elections?!! You have got to be fuking kidding me. https://t.co/GrPbi1M2Xg

Makes you wonder, doesn't it?
To paint the pic clearer – why before elections would you pour gas all over the abortion bonfire?
The timing couldn't be worse, or depending on your agenda, the timing couldn't be better.

This is stupid. The states are already working on completely banning abortion. @GOP keep your hands off of the abortion issue unless you plan on outlawing it completely. All you ever do is snag defeat from the jaws of victory https://t.co/C5uuQQJFio

A cynical man would look at this fact pattern and think this is a ploy by the GOP establishment to drive up pro-abortion turnout in two months in order to reduce the number of good populists that are on track to be elected this go around, thereby consolidating power for 2 years. https://t.co/EvrbsaSpEl

The @GOP is intentionally trying to lose the midterms. They want to quell the #Trump surge. The Rino #GOP have just as much to lose as the Democrats. They are one & the same. It won’t pass, they know it. This is about giving Dems a narrative@LindseyGrahamSC stinks of Rino shit. https://t.co/NIxOApK6oG

Here's a uniparty globalist trying to invoke lefties to vote. Leave this issue, and most others, to the fucking states. https://t.co/nZrJ6vssMt

Abortion is a state issue, not a federal issue, and even if it wasn't, this legislation has zero chance of passing through a Democrat Senate, House, and White House. Is this supposed to galvanize pro-life voters? I can only assume that establishment Republicans want to lose. https://t.co/IrgFerjgbj

Throwing gas on the fire in neck-and-neck Senate races. This is dumb af. And probably intentional. https://t.co/QSTRS0g3IW

At this point, two months out from an election the only logical conclusion is that these people are actively trying to lose.
I don’t know why, but they are.
How idiotic. https://t.co/kESxkPVTrp
