- The South Carolina state Supreme Court on Thursday struck down the state’s six-week abortion ban, asserting that such a law violates the state’s constitution.
- This is the first state supreme court to decide whether abortion is a constitutional right since Roe fell, according to a spokesperson from the Center for Reproductive Rights, which was part of the case.
- The court had temporarily blocked the ban back in August while it considered a legal challenge from abortion providers.
