A CALL TO ACTION: FIGHT THE PASSAGE OF ANTI-ABORTION BILL
Unfortunately, the South Carolina State Senate passed S. 1 last week by a vote of 30 to 13. The bill, which Republicans call the “Fetal Heartbeat Bill” would ban abortions after six weeks, with very limited exceptions. Governor McMaster has made clear his support for this bill and eagerness to sign it into law. Therefore, there is only one way to stop this bill from becoming a law in our state: we must urge the State House not to pass it.
We urge you to voice your strong opposition to this bill to your representatives and to take to social media to make this opinion clear. We cannot sit back and just let the State Legislature declare that the women of South Carolina do not have control over their own bodies. To find your state legislator and his or her contact information, please click the button below. We cannot stand idly by and do nothing to prevent this unconstitutional bill from passing!
