Anti-abortion groups are campaigning against three Democratic Senators in key battleground states who oppose a ban on late-term abortions.

Republicans are working to retake the Senate during the November midterms, and hitting vulnerable Democrats on the late-term abortion issue has become an important strategy for them and their allies.

The anti-abortion groups will be holding rallies in Colorado, North Carolina and Arkansas next week to raise awareness about the late-term abortion bill and shame the Democratic senators. 

“A federal law is long overdue,” said Dannenfelser. “The United States is only one of seven countries to allow abortion on demand at such a late stage of pregnancy.” 

All three senators are in close races critical to Senate control. Republicans only need to flip six Democratic Senate seats to take control of both houses of Congress.
