(WSPA) – The South Carolina Supreme Court will hear the challenge to the state’s new abortion ban later this month.

7NEWS’s Jason Raven recently reported that Governor Henry McMaster signed S.474 into law surrounded by a group of Republican state lawmakers on May 25 that immediately took effect.

Not long after South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster signed a six-week abortion ban into law, abortion providers in the state filed a lawsuit challenging the new restrictions.

The state’s high court says justices will hear arguments against the six-week ban on June 27.

The Court has agreed to block the law that will remain in place until this month’s hearing.
