    Moments after unveiling a bill that would ban all abortions in the United States at 15 weeks, US Senator Lindsey Graham was interrupted by a mother with a devastating story. "I did everything right and at 16 weeks we found out that our son would likely not live," Ashbey Beasley told a crowded room. "When he was born, for eight days he bled from every orifice of his body," she said. But, she said, at least she got to choose how to handle her difficult pregnancy, while Mr Graham's law would take away that choice. "What do you say to someone like me?" Since the Supreme Court s
