Hundreds of South Carolinians signed up to speak Thursday in front of legislators about proposed legislation that would ban abortions across the state. Parents, doctors, religious leaders, teachers, and advocates on both sides of the issue gave testimony to the House ad hoc committee, ranging from personal accounts of the impact abortion has had on individuals to readings from the Bible calling for complete abortion bans without exception. South Carolina currently bans abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, but many Republican legislators are working to enact stricter laws.
