Abortion rights suffered another setback this week. Ohio just became the fifth state to ban abortion at six weeks, just when a fetal heartbeat can be detected. Many women don't even know that they are pregnant at that point.
In Texas, lawmakers introduced one of the most reprehensible bills yet -- the death penalty for women who get abortions. There would be no exception for rape or incest. On the Hill, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, held a hearing on his legislation to ban abortion after 20 weeks.
