COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Tuesday the South Carolina House Ad Hoc Committee on Abortion is holding their second meeting.

It is scheduled for 12 p.m. at the State House. The committee was formed by lawmakers earlier this year in anticipation of a potential ruling from the SCOTUS overruling Roe v. Wade.

The first meeting included public testimony, the second one does not.

A draft was previewed during the meeting that included no exceptions for rape or incest but would allow to save the life of the mother. Mothers would not be criminalized under the draft but doctors providing abortion care illegally would be.
