South Carolina’s highest court upholds strict abortion ban

On November 5, 2020, the South Carolina Supreme Court upheld a 2018 law passed by the state legislature that imposed a strict abortion ban. The law made it a felony for a doctor to perform an abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which typically occurs after around six weeks of pregnancy. This law, which is one of the most restrictive in the United States, was challenged in court and its enforcement was temporarily blocked by a federal judge. The South Carolina Supreme Court’s ruling overturns the injunction imposed by the federal judge, and allows the law to go into effect.
