Statement From Alisa Clements, WV Director of Public Affairs, on Governor Justice's Signing of HB 4007
We are deeply disappointed that Governor Justice signed into law today HB 4007, the so called “born alive” bill. This type of legislation is not based in fact or science and it is purely meant to punish doctors, demonize abortion, and spread misinformation about how safe, legal abortion works.
Seventy-eight percent of South Carolinians oppose banning abortion — yet that’s just what Republican leadership has been attempting to do for years.

“We know that access to reproductive health care hangs in the balance until we have a pro-women’s health majority in the South Carolina legislature that represents the interests of all of the patients we serve, as well as someone in the governor’s mansion who believes in the constitutional right to bodily autonomy and self-determination.”

“During this critical election year, PPVSAT endorsed a slate of candidates who can be counted on to protect and promote access to basic reproductive health care such as birth control, lifesaving cancer screenings and family planning in the state legislature, and that they support a woman’s right to make her own deeply personal pregnancy decisions, no matter what.”
"The bottom line is that it is critical to public health for the state to maintain the fullest possible network of qualified providers to ensure patients get the care they need."
