The irony here is rich.
Democrat Congresswoman Gwen Graham (FL) has come out with her “Quality Care for Moms and Babies Act”, which would ensure that both state and federal governments, along with “health-care professionals” examine Medicare when it comes to the care of pregnant women and their infants.
“The Quality Care for Moms and Babies Act identifies and measures areas where health-care for pregnant women and outcomes for infants on Medicaid can be improved,” Graham said. “This is a simple bill that could dramatically improve health care for pregnant women and infants.
“As a mother of three children, I can’t imagine the pain a family feels when they lose a child,” Graham added. “This bill is an important first step in identifying and implementing solutions to improve care and save lives in North Florida and across the country.”-SSN
Graham, who is the daughter of former U.S. Senator Bob Graham (R), is obviously concerned about the well-being of a pregnant woman and her child, but exactly at what stage of pregnancy does Graham concern herself with the pregnanc, considering that she supports abortion?
During her run for the U.S. Congress in 2014, Graham stated that she would “emulate” her father’s leadership, and that voter’s could count on her continuing the “Graham legacy.”
I’m going to make sure that I’m dedicated to letting the people of this district know that they can count on the Graham legacy,”-Gwen Graham
If Gwen Graham truly is serious about ‘emulating’ her father’s leadership, and carrying on the “Graham legacy, is she saying that she will also follow his past voting lead while he was in the U.S. Senate?
If this is the case, it would mean that she would support and vote against any anti-abortion bills, including partial birth abortion legislation.
Yes, partial birth abortion. In 1999, then U.S. Senator Bob Graham was one of 34 Senators who voted against Senate bill 1692, which banned “the abortion procedure in which the physician partially delivers the fetus before completing the abortion.”
Here is former Senator Bob Graham’s past voting record in the U.S. Senate.
• Voted NO on criminal penalty for harming unborn fetus during other crime. (Mar 2004)
• Voted NO on banning partial birth abortions except for maternal life. (Mar 2003)
• Voted NO on maintaining ban on Military Base Abortions. (Jun 2000)
• Voted NO on banning partial birth abortions. (Oct 1999)
• Voted NO on disallowing overseas military abortions. (May 1999)
• Rated 100% by NARAL, indicating a pro-choice voting record. (Dec 2003)
• Expand embryonic stem cell research. (Jun 2004)
Rep. Graham has recently received $5,500 from the Planned Parenthood PAC, and is one of Emily’s List top candidates.
Emily’s List is an organization that does not support any candidates unless they are in complete support of their pro-Choice agenda, including the support of partial-birth abortions.
Republicans Neal Dunn and Mary Thomas are in a contested primary race to see who will get the opportunity to face-off with Graham in the 2016 general election.
