South Carolina Women Increasingly Terminate Pregnancies in Other States

Many women in South Carolina who choose to terminate pregnancies continue to go to other states to do so, according to a report from Lauren Sausser at The Post and Courier.

The report says that 5,600 South Carolina women had abortions outside of the Palmetto State in 2015, a number that was higher than anywhere else in America.

Last year, about 11,000 women who claimed South Carolina as their residence had abortions, but less than half of those were performed in South Carolina.

The Post and Courier notes numbers from a Centers for Disease Control report and the state's health department indicate "that decadesí worth of legislative attempts to reduce abortions in South Carolina have not stopped women from terminating their pregnancies. In fact, the rate of South Carolina women who had abortions last year was exactly the same as it was 20 years ago. Increasingly, though, it appears women are getting the procedure done outside the state."

1. Ireland pro-lifers tried to stop women from getting abortions outside Ireland

the pro-lifers would ride the ferries between ireland and england and hassle young women - this was back in the 80s 90s

i wonder when sc prolifers will try these tactics
