South Carolina legislators are trying to pass anti-abortion legislation in the final moments of their session! Senate Bill 474 has passed through the state Senate and is getting closer to the governor’s desk. Reach out to your representative today, and stand for safe and legal abortions in South Carolina!
SB 474 is a “fetal heartbeat” ban, which would prohibit abortion after six weeks. This ban, however, is entirely a misnomer, since six-week-old fetuses don’t have a heartbeat. Worse yet, many individuals are unaware that they’re pregnant this soon! This bill would only doom individuals to carry a pregnancy to term simply because they found out about their pregnancy too late to take action. In a post-Roe America, this is another clear attack against reproductive rights by religiously motivated anti-abortion groups that put the life of the fetus before the life of the woman. Don’t let South Carolina force religious views on its residents!
This bill is moving quickly in a last-ditch effort to crack down on reproductive rights before the public can react. Don’t let these legislators get away with it! We have included suggested language through the “Take Action” button, which can be customized to your liking. For best results, please be succinct and polite.
