TAYLORS, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Gov. Nikki Haley will be at the Hidden Treasure Christian School in Taylors on Wednesday to celebrate the signing of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act into law.

The law bans abortions after 19 weeks and was authored by State Representative Wendy Nanney of Greenville.

According to the legislation, after twenty weeks, an unborn child “reacts to stimuli that would be recognized as painful if applied to an adult human, for example, by recoiling.”

Haley signed the bill into law on May 25.

The event at Hidden Treasure, located at 500 West Lee Road, will begin at 2 p.m.
