Gov. Nikki Haley signs bill outlawing abortion at 20 weeks

Gov. Nikki Haley on Wednesday signed legislation making it illegal for a woman to get an abortion once her pregnancy reaches 20 weeks with no exceptions for rape or incest.
The measure, which went into effect with Haley’s signature, was passed out of the Senate last week.
The governor did not immediately issue a statement explaining her support.
The law allows doctors to perform abortions past 20 weeks only if the fetus has been diagnosed with an “anomaly” and will die, or the mother’s life is threatened. Doctors who disobey the new rules would face jail time.
