The next session of the S.C. General Assembly doesn’t convene until January, but Republicans in the State Senate are already working to try and pass a bill that essentially would prohibit abortions in the state. It’s known as the Fetal Heartbeat Bill.
It won easy passage in the House of Representatives earlier this year, and Republican Governor Henry McMaster has said if the bill passes he’ll sign it into law. Because the bill is expected to have a harder time passing in the Senate its' backers are already at work trying to give it a head start in next year’s session.
