(TheConservativeNews.org) – Despite the modern liberal insistence that abortion is a human right, there are several legislative attempts underway to ban the practice. Conservative states, in particular, have strong pro-life factions, and one of them is taking action.

On Wednesday, February 17, the South Carolina House of Representatives passed a bill that would ban most abortions. This bill passed the Senate on January 28. Then, it went to Republican Governor Henry McMaster to sign it into law, which he did on February 18. 

The law requires a doctor to check for a fetal heartbeat before performing an abortion. If one is found, a termination will only be legally possible if the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest, there’s an anomaly, or a threat to the mother’s life.

While the bill passed with a comfortable margin of 30-16, it did not proceed without causing controversy. Democrat House members walked out of their chamber in protest after the votes were cast.

While the US Supreme Court’s Roe v Wade ruling guarantees legal abortion as a constitutional right, another SCOTUS case could see that decision reversed. Legislation like the one about to pass in South Carolina would then take effect, making most abortions illegal.
