Lindsey Graham: I’m going to need your help to find a way out of this definitional problem of rape.
I hope and pray that we can find a way to deal with the current conflict about definitions. And if we do not, then shame on us all, because this is the debate we’re having. We will win if we can focus on the baby, and 20 weeks, and is America in the right spot on this issue. I’m going to to do more than bring my bill up. I’m going to need your help to find a way out of this definitional problem of rape.
The rape exception will be part of the bill - that’s the Hyde position - we just need to find a way, definitionally, to not get us in a spot where we’re debating about what a legitimate rape is…We’re not here debating legitimate rapes, we’re here talking about saving babies at 20 weeks.
