GOP passes new abortion bills and teaching restrictions in General Assembly

The S.C. State House

Lawmakers advanced new, but not so new abortion bills, a bill that would restrict what teachers can teach in their classrooms, and elected a new Supreme Court justice that will leave the court without a female justice for the first time in 35 years.
