South Carolina Woman Arrested For Using Abortion Pills

The Columbia State reports:

A Greenville woman was arrested earlier this week and charged with performing or soliciting an abortion. In October 2021, the then-33-year-old woman sought medical help at St. Francis Hospital after having labor pains, according to a Greenville Police Department incident report.

A warrant for her arrest was signed in 2022, Greenville Police Sgt. Johnathan Brown said. The incident report says the woman told medical personnel she had taken abortion pills to end a pregnancy. State law prohibits self-medication to abort a pregnancy.
