S. 1 -- Six Week Abortion Ban

Bill Text

This bill bans abortion when a fetal heartbeat can be detected. Because this may happen as early as six weeks gestation – before most people even realize they’re pregnant – this bill would effectively ban safe, legal abortion in South Carolina.

Last Action: Signed into law on 2/18/21; Federal Court blocked law from taking effect on 2/19/21
