A step toward getting rid of abortion altogether

That was Oklahoma, today. Tuesday, it was South Carolina.

The South Carolina legislature passed a bill yesterday that bans abortions after 19 weeks, and is now on its way to Gov. Nikki Haley’s desk, where she will likely sign it. That would make South Carolina the 17th state to pass the ban.

Rep. Wendy Nanney, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act’s sponsor, said the bill is a step toward getting “rid of abortion altogether.” The bill does allow for exceptions if the mother’s life is in danger, or if a doctor determines the fetus cannot survive outside the womb. There are no exceptions for rape or incest, and it would be illegal to abort a fetus with a severe disability—which is normally detected at 20 weeks.

Anything to make sure women are kept enslaved to their own bodies. Any way to keep the escape hatch nailed shut from the outside.

The bill would also only affect hospitals, as the three abortion clinics in the whole state of South Carolina don’t perform abortions after 15 weeks.

Three in the whole state – and they don’t do them after 15 weeks.

Sorry, women – it’s your own fault for being born with a uterus.
