South Carolina

Check out the status of abortion care, gender-affirming health care, and many other issues that we're following.

Abortion is available through 6 weeks of pregnancy in South Carolina.

In 2023, the all-male South Carolina Supreme Court allowed a dangerous law to go into effect, impacting the availability of abortion across the state. There are limited exceptions for the life and physical health of the pregnant person, including someone who has a diagnosis of a "life-limiting" fetal anomaly. Survivors of rape and incest can only access care until 12 weeks of pregnancy and only if their physician reports the assault — and the survivor’s name — to law enforcement. For more information, check out our resource on How to Get an Abortion in South Carolina.

Repeal The Ban SC!

South Carolina's extreme abortion ban has had devastating consequences on the pregnant people of our state. To bring about change in this law, since the courts have failed us, we must show our strength in numbers and demand the South Carolina legislature repeal this dangerous and discriminatory law! Join us, with our coalition partners, by adding your name to the long list of people who want abortion access restored in our state. 

Gender-affirming health care for trans youth is banned in South Carolina.

This year, lawmakers passed House Bill 4624, which bans gender-affirming health care for anyone under 18, including reversible hormone therapy and puberty blockers. For patients currently accessing care, they will be forced to taper off their medication by January 2025 or seek care in another state. This bill also requires school officials to “out” students who are curious about or questioning their gender to their parents, potentially before they are ready to share.

There are resources available for families who are forced to travel out of state.
