SC advances abortion bill with no exceptions for rape or incest

Not to be outdone by other backward states, South Carolina advances their own draconian, abortion bill.

State senators on Tuesday removed exceptions for rape and incest from a bill that bans abortions roughly six weeks after conception, potentially setting up a conflict with the House, which approved the exceptions earlier this year after contentious debate

The bill, H.3020, would make it illegal to get an abortion in South Carolina after a fetal heartbeat has been detected, which occurs five to eight weeks into most pregnancies.

Opponents called the measure a further transgression against the rights of those women and girls who have been victims of a brutal crime.
