Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, defends his 15-week abortion ban bill on Jesse Watters Primetime on Sept. 14, 2022. Graham has been widely panned for the timing of his abortion ban bill, which coincided with dismal inflation news on Tuesday, and for putting Republican midterm candidates in a tight spot.

On this episode of the South Carolina Lede for September 17, 2022: the latest on the controversy surrounding Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham's 15-week nationwide abortion ban proposal; new inflation data and what it means for Social Security recipients; an extended interview with SCDHEC's Director of Public Health Dr. Brannon Traxler; and more.
