An original ruling by the lower court said the "20-week threshold" would make some "pre-viability abortions" illegal, which would be in violation of the Supreme Court's 1992 ruling in the case of Planned Parenthood v.

North Carolina’s House Health Committee approved the bill, which would require doctors to provide documentation under oath of any abortion performed with a set of details of why they did the procedure. Those documents would be reviewed by the state as the next level of oversight.
House Bill 453, which was introduced in the General Assembly this week, is known as the 'Human Non-Discrimination and No Eugenics Act'. The bill aims to restrict women from getting abortions based on race, sex, or a prenatal diagnosis of Down's syndrome.
"South Carolina politicians just used an abortion ban to target and re-victimize sexual assault survivors — all while the pandemic rages on," Planned Parenthood President and CEO Alexis McGill Johnson said in a statement Thursday. "This is politics at its worst."
