South Carolina lawmakers advance 20-week abortion ban
By Harriet McLeod CHARLESTON, South Carolina (Reuters) – South Carolina’s Republican-controlled House of Representatives approved a bill on Wednesday that would ban most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, moving the state closer to becoming the latest to limit access to the procedure. The bill now moves to the Senate, where if approved and then signed by Republican Governor Nikki Haley, South Carolina would become the 13th state to enact the ban, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a nonprofit sexual health research organization. Under the bill, doctors in South Carolina would be required to determine the age of the fetus and include on abortion reports to the state health department whether an ultrasound test was used to determine the age. Doctors performing an abortion of a fetus at 20 weeks or less would also be required to try to deliver it alive.
