Planned Parenthood said it will be holding a Day of Action at the SC State House. The organization held a press conference at 10 a.m.
The House Ad Hoc Committee on Abortion will be holding their hearing in the Blatt Building at noon.
Abortion is currently banned in South Carolina after six weeks of pregnancy under the Fetal Heartbeat Law with medical and rape exceptions. The law bans an abortion if cardiac activity is detected.
The first meeting/public hearing of the SC House ad hoc committee on abortion begins at 12, but people are already lined up outside to get in the building where it’ll be held, which is surrounded by temporary fences. Much more noticeable law enforcement presence here than usual. pic.twitter.com/dHMdzfvGHl— Mary Green (@MaryGreenNews) July 7, 2022
