Dana Weinstein (via NARAL)
In one of his first acts in recent memory that doesn't involve manufactured rage over Benghazi, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is attempting to fend off the Tea Party while proving once again that his party is not in any way, shape, or form, actively conducting a war on women, by introducing a 20 week abortion ban.
Long before Graham faced a possible primary from the Tea Party, the 20 week ban was the brainchild of Rob Portman (also introducing the ban with Graham), and Tea Party radicals Ted Cruz and Florida's own Marco Rubio. Rubio had bragged that this legislation would be his "baby" so to speak.
Rubio, of course, is well known for his stand against abortion, no matter what the cost, because he wants to make that very personal decision for women.
He's also well known for doing anything and everything he can to make sure that Obamacare fails. (His latest effort to keep people from gaining access to health care involves introducing a bill that would order health care navigators to undergo a background check before they're able to assist people in finding a health insurance plan.)
One of the health care essentials the Affordable Care Act provides for is maternity care. The ACA also provides that no insurance provider could refuse to insure anyone for having a preexisting condition.
So in essence, Marco Rubio demands that a women carry a child to term no matter what the circumstances, a child who would then live a life knowing only pain and suffering, like that in the case of Dana Weinstein (as seen below). If he got his way, Weinstein and her child would also face astronomical medical bills with little or no insurance. The child would never be insurable.
This from someone who says the government should never come between you and your doctor.
And Rubio aspires to be President someday. With radical ideas like this, he'll be lucky to keep his seat in the senate for a second term.
