South Carolina House conservative lawmakers have rejected what is being called a watered-down abortion measure that aimed to make the state's six-week abortion procedure ban more restrictive.

The rejection from lawmakers could indicate that the state plans on keeping the six-week ban in place, the Associated Press reported.

Many of the conservative lawmakers, who reportedly also favored a complete ban on abortion in the state, were some of whom rejected the latest measure.

South Carolina's six-week abortion procedure ban has been suspended as the state's Supreme Court reviews elements of it for privacy rights violations.
