The subject of a proposed national abortion ban is expected to be a galvanising issue in the next midterm elections, and President Biden is bringing Sen. Lindsey O. Graham.
Vice President Joe Biden urged New York donors to the Democratic National Committee to "think about what these gentlemen are talking about.
He said, "I also happen to be a devout Roman Catholic.""No one in my faith would ever argue like way now."
Graham just proposed legislation to prohibit abortions in the United States after the 15th week of pregnancy, so his sharp criticism comes at an awkward time.
However, he did say that "in circumstances of rape, incest, or to preserve the life of the mother," exceptions might be allowed.
In the United States, abortion is not illegal.When Graham announced the plan last week, he was flanked by many female antiabortion advocates.
