USA – Abortion bans in deeply conservative Nebraska and South Carolina both fell short of advancing in close legislative votes amid heated debates among Republicans. 

In Nebraska, an effort to ban abortion about the sixth week of pregnancy fell one vote short of breaking a filibuster. 

In South Carolina, lawmakers voted 22-21 to shelve a proposed near-total abortion ban for the rest of the year. 

Fourteen other states have bans in place on abortion at all stages of pregnancy, while four others have bans throughout pregnancy where enforcement is blocked by courts.
