WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), a member of the Judiciary Committee, has again cosponsored S. 946 the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, which establishes a consistent government-wide prohibition on abortion funding.

 

“Tax dollars should not be used to fund abortions,” said Graham.

 

The legislation would make the following policies permanent:

 

the Hyde amendment, which prohibits funding for elective abortion coverage through any program funded through the annual Labor, Health and Human Services Appropriations Act,

 

the Helms amendment, which prohibits funding for abortion as a method of family planning overseas,

 

the Smith FEHBP amendment, which prohibits funding for elective abortion coverage for federal employees,

 

the Dornan amendment, which prohibits use of congressionally appropriated funds for abortion in the District of Columbia,

 

other policies, such as the restrictions on elective abortion funding through Federal prisons.

 

The legislation currently has 22 cosponsors in the Senate.  The House of Representatives passed the bill 251-175 in the 112th Congress, but the legislation was not allowed for a vote in the Democrat-controlled Senate.

My Response to President Obama on National Security

by Senator Lindsey Graham

With all due respect Mr. President, Benghazi and Boston are compelling examples of how our national security systems have deteriorated on your watch.

 

In Benghazi, multiple requests for increased security were denied and numerous warnings from Ambassador Stevens about the growing threats from al Qaeda were ignored by Washington.  For over seven and a half hours during the attack our Americans in the field were abandoned.  After the attack, your Administration provided misleading information to the American people.

 

In Boston, both the FBI and CIA were warned by the Russians about a radical Islamist in our midst.  Once enrolled in the system as a potential terror suspect, the older brother was able to travel back to Russia unimpeded by DHS or any of our intelligence agencies.  Agencies under your control were unable to coordinate the information they received on the Boston terrorists.

 

If Benghazi is not an example of system failure before, during and after the attack what would be?  If Boston is not an example of a pre-9/11 stove piping mentality what would be?
