MAGA Republicans just introduced a nationwide 15-week abortion ban

This is monstrous: Lindsey Graham just introduced a bill in the Senate that would enact a 15-week national abortion ban.

For months, Republicans have been avoiding the issue of abortion: they tried scrubbing their campaign websites, lying about their records, and (literally) running away from voters who ask too many questions. They know their position is unpopular, so now they’re trying to pivot and claim that this latest attack on bodily autonomy is aimed at “late term abortions.”

It’s bullshit. We already know the majority of Americans oppose abortion bans — now, before voters begin to cast their ballots in just a few weeks, it’s up to us to make sure everyone knows the stakes.

To be clear, this bill has zero chance of passing in the current Congress — but if they can flip just a few seats in Congress this November, they will have enough votes to pass it. And if the MAGA GOP takes back the majority, they’ve already declared this draconian ban will be at the top of their agenda: In a televised press briefing, Lindsey Graham just went on record saying if Republicans take over Congress, they will vote on a national abortion ban.

We’re going to use his own words against him, turn the clip into an ad, and play it in battleground districts across the country. Chip in $10 to help launch our ad and make sure we have all the resources we need to mobilize voters and defeat MAGA Republicans this November.

Republicans have shown us who they are and what the future will be like if they regain control this November. They think they can satisfy the minority of Americans who make up their base while convincing the rest of us that their agenda isn’t too extreme. It won’t work.

Between now and November, we must brand the GOP with their own extremism and we remind voters that MAGA Republicans will not stop attacking our rights.

Early voting in some states begins in just a few days, and we’re not leaving anything to chance. With your help, we’re going to run this and other hard-hitting ads in key swing districts across the country — as well as ramp up all of our voter contact work including phonebanking, textbanking, canvassing and letter-writing to reach voters who need to know what a MAGA GOP future will really look like.

Our movement has beaten back Republican extremists before, and we can do it again with support from the grassroots. If you haven’t already, head over to GiveNoGround.org and sign up to volunteer — it’s going to take all of us to defeat MAGA extremism.
