Demand South Carolina legislators repeal abortion restrictions! Hearing Scheduled!

by Brandi Ellison on Jun 29, 2022

House of Representatives Ad Hoc Committee on Abortion is meeting on  Thursday, July 7, 2022. 

The South Carolina House of Representatives has put together a special Ad Hoc Committee to consider NEW legislation related to the Supreme Court’s decision on abortion. This Committee has set its first meeting date to hear from the public.   

This is a critical moment for the voices of South Carolinians to be heard! Members of this committee are on the record about wanting to see a total and complete ban on abortion in South Carolina. The hearing will be one of the few opportunities for public testimony on the future of abortion access in South Carolina, and we need abortion rights supporters to show up and speak out.

What should be in your testimony?  Demand that legislators maintain and expand abortion access in South Carolina. Research shows that being denied an abortion has serious consequences for a person’s health, well-being, and financial security. ** Remember to include your personal story and any compelling data  

Who should speak? The committee wants to hear from anyone and everyone who could be impacted by an abortion ban. That means YOU!    

Nervous or have questions about testifying? WREN recently hosted two testifier trainings to help you learn the ins and outs of testifying. You can watch one of them here.
