According to Washington Watch with Tony Perkins via Soundcloud, “PERKINS: ‘Another measure that’s going to be voted on by Senator Graham which is a measure which has been up before. And this simply says that after the period of roughly five months, when a baby feels pain, that at that point forward abortion should be prohibited. LOEFFLER: That’s right. […] I think it’s just common sense to say that 20 weeks is the minimum, the number we need to look at.” [Washington Watch with Tony Perkins via Soundcloud, 2/25/20]

Thursday night, the Washington Examiner spotted her meeting with Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony List. The meeting caught our attention because Dannenfelser had opposed Loeffler’s nomination, noting on Twitter that she served on the board of Grady Memorial Hospital, which has ties to Emory Medical School, which offers training for students on performing abortions.” [Washington Examiner, 12/20/19]
