South Carolina Bill Eliminating Fetal Anomaly Exception for Abortion (H 3983)
This law was last updated on Feb 18, 2019
H 3893 would make it a criminal act to perform an abortion during any trimester if the sole reason for the abortion is due to the existence of a fetal anomaly.
The bill would amend all statutes related to the “South Carolina Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” to eliminate the fetal anomaly exception to the prohibition of abortion when the probable post-fertilization age of a fetus is 20 weeks or more.
Removes fetal anomaly exceptions found in H 3114 (2016).
Identical to H 4833, which failed to pass in 2018.
2/14/19 – Introduced; referred to House Judiciary Committee.
