GOP State Senator: Women Will Fake Being Raped To Get Abortions
South Caroline Senator Lee Bright isn’t supporting his state’s proposed 20-week abortion ban because he believes women will use the rape exception to lie their way to abortions.
“After 20 weeks if you wanted to get an abortion you could go and say you were raped and you could have the abortion,” Bright said. “You wouldn’t be denied. There’s no police report.”
Bright also argued that, even in the case of a woman being sexually assaulted and immediately taken to a hospital, the fetus “had a right.”
