demings had answered previously to news of Graham’s bill by tweeting: “This is just the next step in Marco Rubio’s fight to ban abortions without exceptions for victims of rape, incest and sexual assault. In the United States Senate, I will never stop fighting to codify Roe v. Wade and protect women’s freedoms.”
end of last monthRubio told an interviewer that, as Demings pointed out, he wants a ban with no rape or incest exceptions, though he said he was willing to vote for those exceptions. blond so he said he thought the issue should be decided by the states, not the federal government, yet here he is quickly signing on to support a federal abortion ban.

Florida recently banned abortion after 15 weeks, in line with Graham’s bill. Florida law does not include exceptions for rape or incest, although it does include exceptions for saving the life or health of the pregnant person, and for cases where fetal anomalies incompatible with life are discovered after 15 weeks.
According to a July survey57% of Floridians disapproved of the Supreme Court decision that overturned roe v. calf, though respondents were divided on what they wanted to see in their state’s laws. One in three wanted a state law protecting abortion access, with 15% supporting a 15-week ban and 30% supporting stronger bans. another poll found 56% support for abortion to be legal in most or all cases.
