Update: Abortion in South Carolina Moves Closer to Being Criminalized 

The ad hoc SC House committee on abortion legislation has met twice this month. The committee produced a bill named H. 5399 after a disingenuously short period of public input. H. 5399 is a total ban on abortion with only an extreme exception for the life of the mother, and would send people to jail who provide or even assist a woman seeking an abortion. There is not an exception for rape, incest, or fetal abnormality.

The committee has submitted H. 5399, and the House Judiciary committee will likely prepare the bill during the week of August 15 for a full House vote later in the month. You are encouraged to contact the members of the House Judiciary Committee in Charleston County to share your thoughts on H. 5399:

Contact Members of the House Judiciary Committee

There is also discussion in the SC House to outlaw discussion of abortion resources online, and even over the telephone. 

After approval from the House Judiciary committee, the entire SC House and then SC Senate would need to draft a similar bill. Contract your SC Representative and Senator today to let them know your thoughts on H. 5399:
