Statement from Vicki Ringer, South Carolina Director of Public Affairs for Planned Parenthood Votes! South Atlantic:

“The latest independent, nonpartisan research from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM) affirms Planned Parenthood’s position that abortion in all forms is a safe and effective form of health care. In fact, the biggest threat to quality abortion care is the litany of medically unnecessary regulations that raise costs and delay procedures, ultimately putting women’s health at risk. NASEM confirmed what millions of women already know: that access to safe and effective, legal abortion care depends on where you live.

“One key takeaway from the report is that the dilation and evacuation (D&E) method is reported as a ‘superior method’ for abortions in the second trimester, and is safe with minimal rates of complications.

“Despite the overwhelming evidence, anti-women’s health lawmakers in Columbia continue to push H. 3548, which would ban this very safe method of abortion.

“While politicians across the country and here in South Carolina attempt to overregulate and restrict a woman’s access to abortion, Planned Parenthood South Atlantic will continue to challenge unfounded regulations that prohibit women from accessing the quality care they need.”
