THIS JUST IN: South Carolina Passes Landmark ABORTION Bill

While it's not the anti-abortion bill many Christians are hoping for, it's still a small step in the right direction. South Carolina's Legislature just approved a landmark bill that bans the killing of unborn babies after 19 weeks of their development.

According to the Star Tribune, Republican governor Nikki Haley is expected to sign it.

The bill does make exceptions, though. It allows abortions after 19 weeks for unborn babies who a doctor determines cannot live outside the womb and also allows abortions if the mother's life is determined to be in jeopardy. Unborn babies with severe, but not fatal, disabilities cannot be aborted legally after 19 weeks. Rape and incest and not considered causes for exemption.

The bill is similar to laws enacted in 12 other states. The 19-week cutoff is based off the idea that unborn babies can feel pain at 20 weeks.
