Senator Lindsey Graham, RS.C., had a lot to say about what it would mean if the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, as noted in a leaked draft notice, but he dismissed the idea that it would affect the November midterm elections.
During an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” the Republican said that despite giving lawmakers — and by extension, voters — more power in the abortion debate, it will be overshadowed by the failures of the President Biden in power.

“I don’t think it will affect the outcome of the 2022 election at all,” Graham said. “When you go to the grocery store, when you go to a gas station, it’s going to remind you of the incompetence of the Biden administration.”
Graham noted that while “enthusiasm is important,” voters who base their decisions on single issues “rarely decide the outcome of an election.”

Discussing the ability of lawmakers — at the state and federal levels — to fight abortion, Graham pointed to how Democrats led by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, DN.Y., will hold a vote this week on a bill that would allow abortion. at any time during pregnancy. He also referred to his own bill which takes a more limited approach.
“Well on Wednesday we’re going to vote…to legalize abortion until the day before birth. It would become the law of the land, but they don’t have the votes for it. I have a bill that would ban abortion at 20 weeks,” Graham said, stating that the United States is currently on a short list of countries that allow abortion for any reason until the end of a pregnancy.

“So Congress will continue to debate this issue, the states will finally have control over this, and here’s the common theme,” Graham continued. “If you don’t like the outcome of the abortion debate, now you can kick people out who vote. Before, you were kicked out, you had no chance. Five judges, six judges, seven judges determined when life begins and how it ends and I think it was wrong all along.”
