Abortion banned in South Carolina after 20 weeks with Nikki Haley’s signature on bill

South Carolina became the 17th state to ban abortions after the 20-week mark Wednesday when Gov. Nikki Haley, a Republican, signed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act into law.

The legislation passed the South Carolina Senate last week and allows abortions after the five-month mark only in the event of a terminal “anomaly” diagnosis of the fetus.

Pro-life groups were quick to praise Ms. Haley for signing the legislation.

Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser called the legislation the “latest victory amid a flurry of state-level pro-life activity being led by women lawmakers.”

    I’m glad to see abortion has been banned after the 20 week mark in South Carolina. This is another step in the right direction–to shut down the baby slaughterhouses around the nation.

    It took her 5 days to do away with the Confederate Flag that hadn’t MURDERED anyone, but took 20 weeks on something that kills! She’s not been good for SC at all!
