Today, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and U.S. Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) introduced a nationwide abortion ban, making crystal clear that banning abortion in all 50 states is a top priority for a Republican Congress. The proposal underscores the high stakes in November’s elections. Right now, 16 states have abortion bans in effect — leaving one in three American women without control over their own bodies. Under a national abortion ban, pregnant people in remaining access states would lose their rights as well.

Statement from Emily Wales, president and CEO, Planned Parenthood Great Plains Votes:

“Only weeks after the Supreme Court overturned Roe, Kansans offered the clearest window we have into how the public views abortion rights: they trust patients to make private medical decisions. Today’s announcement of a 15-week nationwide abortion ban being proposed in the U.S. Senate once again shows Republicans aren’t interested in representing the constituents they’re elected to serve. Their intention is not only to seize headlines and sow division, but to take control – of our bodies, our rights, and our lives. The proposed laws we’re seeing are life-threatening and cruel, and there’s only one way to stop them: vote. them. out.”
