In the latest attack on abortion access, South Carolina joins a long list of states who have attempted to pass legislation or set up obstacles for individuals trying to access abortion services. Last week, South Carolina Governor Henry McMasters signed an executive order that bans funding of any non-profit organization or practitioner that offers abortion services. The executive order bars the funding of abortion providers by state and local resources and will undoubtedly limit the number of people who will receive abortion procedures or preventative care at these facilities. According to many reproductive rights advocates, this executive order is a pointed attack on Planned Parenthood, which has three clinics in the state. The Los Angeles Times reports that Governor McMasters said in a statement that “taxpayer dollars must not directly or indirectly subsidize abortion providers like Planned Parenthood.” Governor McMaster’s executive order follows the most recent rollback on Title X funding protections by the Trump Administration.  After Trump’s inauguration, the House and Senate, using the Congressional Review Act, repealed a rule put in place by the Obama administration in December that blocked states from cutting off Title X funding to women’s health clinics that provide abortion services. Title X of the […]<div>

On the anniversary of the federal Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, advocates for abortion access fear that an increase in anti-abortion violence will be met with limited enforcement by the Trump administration, which has shown unprecedented support for restricting abortion access. Signed into law by President Bill Clinton on May 26, 1994, the FACE Act helps to curb violence against abortion providers, clinics, staff and patients. The FACE Act criminalizes the use of force, the threat of force, or physical obstruction to intimidate, harm, or prevent someone from obtaining or providing reproductive health services. The law was passed during a surge of violence against reproductive healthcare providers in the 1990’s that culminated in the murder of Dr. David Gunn in Pensacola, Florida on March 10, 1993. Following Dr. Gunn’s death, Dr. George Tiller was shot on August 19, 1993 by Shelly Shannon, who has been called a “soldier” in the “Army of God,” an anti-abortion extremist group that claimed the killing of abortion providers as the only method to end abortion. The following July, Dr. John Bayard Britton and volunteer clinic escort Lt Col. James Barrett were murdered by anti-abortion extremist Paul Hill. On December 30, 1994 […]<div>
