    what is the ultimate purpose of doing this? how does this affect them on a personal level that they would fathom an idea to eliminate personal freedom. I guess that's their party motto

  • Jackie on September 20, 2022

    I can’t stand that coward Lindsay G I’m pro choice and I have no problem with a 15 week limit. After 4 months there’s form to the fetus . I think this is fair.

  • Susan Sharp on September 20, 2022

    So men like to make laws about womens bodies. What if the tables were turned

  • Dek Gmail on September 20, 2022

    Why is it always up to the women, they didn’t plant the sperm!!!! Men should pay for the abortion if the woman didn’t want a baby, and don’t give me the crap (oh I wore protection) that protection is not 100%, I have what was commonly called a Rubber baby, especially lamb- NoGood!!!!!! But don’t think it’s up to the woman to take full responsibility when it’s easier for a man to wear good protection, birth control pills are hormones and can cause many bad issues in women including Cancer, So why should women jeopardize their Health, when a man can simply put on the protection which has No I’ll effects at all,and doesn’t damage their bodies, Hold Men More accountable or stay away!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • blue ocean 1961 on September 20, 2022

    Does miss Lindsey understand that if that happened Biden wouldn't sign it?

  • Deborah Dralle on September 20, 2022

    Hey Lindsey, I think you should be impeached. You are a liar and a traitor.

  • Ronald Akins on September 20, 2022

    Lindsey is only attempting to take some heat off of the Republican Party. 15 weeks will turn into a total band if republicans maintain control. Wake Up America!!!!

  • bilal jahi on September 20, 2022

    What’s new?

  • Leo Horishny on September 20, 2022

    Who really thought Limp Wrist Lindsay would stand firm on any position when it came to women’s sexual life? Or could stand firm….🤷🏼‍♂️

  • draco argentum on September 20, 2022

    If the Embryo is considered a separate person, couldn't a woman get a 500 yard restraining order for the fetus they won't allow aborted?

  • Romeo7414GD on September 20, 2022

    That's 🤡's Bill shouldn't even be entertained PERIOD 😡
    Abortion is between a woman, her God, her family, and her doctor… That's IT that's ALL 🙄

  • akparadise on September 20, 2022

    Is there any issue that Graham doesn't flip flop on. Sometimes two or three times in a day. Ands whats up with his eyes.

  • Native Texan on September 20, 2022

    So much for small government, at least where woman are concerned. These bas–s are in our crotch, up our vaginas, in our uteruses, in our ovaries, and in our fallopian tubes!
    It is sickening perverse.

  • Deborah Gee on September 20, 2022

    Thank you for having these women on to explain in detail what would happen with Lindsey Graham‘s proposal to make abortion illegal on the federal level. I knew the answer but it’s always good to hear the details especially for those who haven’t really thought it through.

  • Wes Chancellor on September 20, 2022

    Gram committed a crime when he stood in the hauls of congress and begged for money on national TV. He should have been banned for holding office forever for that crime.

  • Sam Hartford on September 20, 2022

    Lindsey forgot to wash her make up off last night.

  • Ken Albertsen on September 20, 2022

    Graham flip-flopping? Oh my! Perish the thought. That's like saying a dog wags its tail.

  • Puddy Tatt on September 20, 2022

    ""AWE"" tRumps Lover Boy striking out, and hurting innocent Americans cause his Lip Candy is a sore looser.

  • Debi Belden on September 20, 2022

    O k miss Lindsey

  • SpicyHotPot on September 20, 2022

    If he didn't flip flop, or wasn't a hypocrite, he wouldn't be a Republican

  • Rump[e Stillskin on September 20, 2022

    More fake news. It isn't a "Constitutional Right"

  • Thomas Steiner on September 20, 2022

    sounds like a good person maybe I should turn myself and vote for Republicans instead of Democrats now

  • Miller on September 20, 2022


    Who could have seen this coming? 🤔

  • jwinship71 on September 20, 2022

    Lindsey is a spineless jellyfish of the worst kind. He's UNTRUSTWORTHY!!!

  • Mr_Geno on September 20, 2022

    It's a well known fact that Lindsey Graham will gladly get on his back for the right amount of money.

  • Flying Knee TV on September 20, 2022

    15 weeks is about the high average world wide in those countries who allow abortions.

  • philomena williams on September 20, 2022

    HE SPEAKS WITH FORKED TONGUE! He needs an mega extended long play music cd because he changes up his TAP DANCE SO MUCH, HE NOW TAP DANCES TO ALL GENRES MUSIC!

  • JACK SUTTON on September 20, 2022

    Does Lindsey Graham 's children victims think they have any rights? Or just unborn zygotes?

  • Ghosthand on September 20, 2022

    I hate to say it but I agree with Graham's proposed bill. But it must also state that up until 15 weeks it is the woman's right to an abortion. If he is setting the goal post at 15 weeks for a fetus to be declared a person, with all the rights of a living person then he is also agreeing that before then it is not. Now before you start yelling at me, majority of all current and pervious abortions happen before 15 weeks, around 90-95%. Most of them after that time period are the result of some medical issue and not by choice.

  • Delmonico Farquhar on September 20, 2022

    I wonder if Lindsey Graham sees what I see when he looks at himself in the mirror: some kind of mutant parasitic insect.

  • Marco M on September 20, 2022

    Lady Lindsey needs to STFU. As soon as he can grow a uterus, go through a menstrual cycle , get pregnant…etc, I’ll be more than happy to hear what he has to say about abortion but until then he needs to keep his trap shut. As a matter of fact, all of us men need to keep our traps shut.

  • playaflydre3000 on September 20, 2022

    He let the cat out of the bag too early. Once they overturned Roe. That red wave became null & void.

  • Jelly Bean2021 on September 20, 2022

    It has never been about abortion. It has always been about taking rights away from women.

  • Uncle Buck on September 20, 2022

    Lindsey better stop boofing tweak before it’s too late.

  • alex laverick on September 20, 2022

    The US is going backwards and its white men in power who are driving the train towards the upcoming wreck.
    Republicans don't respect anything but power.
    They are dangerous to your freedoms and rights.

  • Frenchblue8 on September 20, 2022

    Lindsey Graham has never been a father. Lindsey Graham will never be a mother. Lindsey Graham has no memory of being a baby, a fetus, a zygote, or a collection of cells that have no discernible vital organs of life.

    So tell us again why he has any say in this?
    Oh that's right, he's a demented, right wing extremist, xenophobic,wealthy entitled old southern senator, supposedly from South Carolina`~except that his face is planted firmly in….


  • Katherine Crossman on September 20, 2022

    Lindsey Graham is disgusting. He is not well informed. He is not knowledgeable. He does not think women should have the right to make their own decisions regarding their health , or welfare . Nor does he know what can go wrong with a pregnancy . And women should make those decisions with their Dr's. And then with whomever she chooses to share that decision with. Governments, state or federal, have no right to interfere with any medical decision. Let alone one so private, personal , and too often , heart breaking . Seems to me at 71 , that women have always had to fight for our rights , and keep fight for the same rights , over and over again .

  • Highland804 on September 20, 2022

    Graham is pathetic and hateful. Walker is, plain and simple, a moron. Oz is an embarrassment.

  • Red Hot on September 20, 2022

    This is not a matter of making this ruling right some how. this is a matter of 9 people changing the constitution and saying it is ok. NO!!! this is not ok that 9 people can change the constitution like its only the way they think. and they thought wrong, taking rights away from people for no real reason. it took months to get roe on the books and these 9 people took it away in 2 weeks, how much thinking went into this decction? or was it ordered by trump to do when you can? put this right this 9 people can not run this country. Give women back their rights. why a woman gets an abortion is her business no one else's and I feel it is still her right with out question, and no one talks about the maga in the SCOTUS. this was wrong it is wrong.

  • Connie Mazas on September 20, 2022

    Here comes that slightly confused Lindsey again, riding that never-ending turntable. Yep, that good ole "Count me Out….Enough is Enough". We got it Graham Quacker.

  • C A on September 20, 2022

    Lindsey Graham bought and paid for by Democrats. He's now a Democrat secret agent and his message will help Dems hold the House and Senate.

  • onlyguywithnoname on September 20, 2022

    I support the right to choose, but you just said that it was important not to criminalize a health decision… whether or not to take the vaccine is a health decision… people are being treated as amd made into criminals for not taking it. The duplicity is staggering

  • Tom Hill on September 20, 2022

    Try not to sound so surprised when you say, with reference to Republicans like Lindsey Graham shamelessly flip flopping, "It's a lie!" There's no surprise here. The GOP is the party of lies. Always. Never forget that.
