“Two bills severely restricting abortion in South Carolina and Nebraska’s Republican-dominated legislatures both failed to pass on Thursday,” Axios reports.
“The results mean abortions remain legal in the two states until 22 weeks of pregnancy.”
New York Times: “Both states would have joined a growing list of Republican-dominated states with severe restrictions on abortion. So far, 14 states have active bans on nearly all abortions, though some allow exceptions for rape and danger to the life of the mother. Georgia and Florida also ban abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, but Florida’s ban is on hold pending a court challenge.”Save to Favorites
