Senate Republicans do not know how to respond to South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham’s latest proposed bill that aims to ban abortion nationwide after 15 weeks of pregnancy. 

Some GOP senators believe abortion issues should be “left to the states” following the Supreme Court’s landmark decision to overturn Roe v. Wade this summer. Graham’s proposal has the power to override state law and, because Massachusetts remains a state where women can safely terminate their pregnancies, Graham’s law would have the power to enact unwanted change. 

The proposed bill is unlikely to pass anytime soon, but some Boston residents are concerned. WTBU reporter Chika Okoye has more.
