Mixed reactions have continued to trail the ban of abortion in South Carolina in  a restrictive law known as “heartbeat ban.”

This is just as anti-abortion supporters faulted President Joe Biden’s administration over the development.

According to the heartbeat law, SB1, women cannot undergo abortion after detecting a fetal heartbeat, which could be detected within six weeks into a pregnancy.

However, the law exempts cases of rape, incest and medical emergencies while physicians are mandated to report to the county sheriff within 24 hours in exemption cases.

Meanwhile, President Joe Biden’s immigration bill would be revealed on Thursday for the legislative process, according to senior White House officials.

The bill would enable the integration of 11 million undocumented immigrants as part of Biden’s vision for the country.

A senior administration official said, “This was a day-one commitment of the president, and it is his vision of what it takes to fix the system.”

According to reports, two Democratic legislators, California Congresswoman Linda Sanchez and New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez, would present the bill to the House of Representatives and the Senate, respectively.

Recall that the former President Barack Obama issued an executive order in 2012 to provide protection for Dreamers. Dreamers are  people who grew up in the United States but were brought in illegally.

According to the executive order, the dreamers were offered protection for two renewable years and opportunity to work.
