Sen. Lindsey Graham introduces bill which would protect unborn children from abortions after 20 weeks, but he did not call for an end of the filibuster in order to pass the bill.
The South Carolina Republican said he expects the abortion ban to pass the Senate with “60 votes over the arc of time. The best way to protect the pro-life issue and to pass this bill is to build consensus and get 60 votes and not turn the Senate into the House.”
He said conservatives needed to take the long view about the filibuster.
“Democrats have been more in charge of this place than we have by a factor of three,” he said.
