S.C. Heartbeat Law Ruled Constitutional
On Wednesday, August 23rd the S.C. State Supreme Court upheld the Heartbeat Law as constitutional in a 4-1 decision.
Justices John James, John Few, and Gary Hill joined Justice John Kittredge in the majority opinion. Chief Justice Donald Beatty was the lone dissenting opinion.
The Heartbeat Law takes effect immediately upon this decision. And it is the strongest piece of pro-life legislation to make it through the process in South Carolina.
