The House ad hoc committee on abortion held its first hearing on July 7, 2022 in Columbia. The committee, made up of eight Republicans and four Democrats, heard seven hours of testimony on Thursday and will craft new legislation later this fall that will further restrict abortion access in South Carolina.

On this episode of the South Carolina Lede for July 9, 2022: a recap of the first hearing held by the South Carolina House ad hoc committee on abortion; a look at how inflation is impacting South Carolinians; details on the first cases of monkeypox in the Palmetto State; and more.
