Subj: County Results for Republican Advisory Q #1, June 2014 Republican Primary

Dear REPUBLICAN South Carolina Senators,     

Attached to this letter is a print-out from the South Carolina Election Commission website which shows the Official Results by County for Republican Advisory Question #1, in the June 2014 Statewide Primary Election.

The raw vote totals are displayed, which totaled 240,453 ( 78.6% ) in favor of Republican Advisory Question #1, out of a total of 305,726 votes cast. Each and every County of the 45 Counties which reported showed a large majority in favor of Republican Advisory Question #1, ranging from a high of 88.1% of the voters to a low of 69.2% of the voters in these 45 Counties.

The text of Republican Advisory Question #1 on the Official Ballot, read as follows:

“Should Article I, Section 3 of the South Carolina Constitution be amended to include the following language?” 

“The privileges and immunities of citizens of South Carolina and the United States shall not be abridged, so that no person shall be deprived of life without due process of law, nor shall any person be denied the equal protection of the laws. These rights shall extend to both born and pre-born persons beginning at conception.”    Yes [   ]    No  [   ]

 On the reverse side of this letter is a list of the County Results for Republican Advisory Q #1, June 2014 Republican Primary ( by Percentage ), calculated from the raw vote data on SC Election Commission website.

On April 28, 2015, a Joint Resolution ( S.719 ) was introduced in the South Carolina Senate to place virtually the identical, verbatim language which appeared in Republican Advisory Q #1, in the June 2014 Republican Primary, as an actual proposed constitutional amendment on the ballot in November 2016.

[The only difference is the removal of the hyphen in the word ‘preborn’. ]

There are presently nine Senate co-sponsors of S.719, the SC Personhood Constitutional Amendment:

Bright, Bryant, Cromer, Fair, Grooms, S. Martin, Massey, Shealy, Turner. [ If you have not signed on yet as a co-sponsor, please do so as soon as possible. Why should there not be 27 Republican Senate co-sponsors ? ]

In addition, the SC Personhood Project led by Personhood South Carolina, has received the pledges ( https://personhood.sc/pledge/ ) of eight SC Senators:  Bright, Bryant, Corbin, Fair, Gregory, Hayes, Shealy, Verdin [ If you have not yet signed the pledge, please go to https://personhood.sc/ to download pledge. ]

Over the past 17 years of introducing Personhood BILLS in the SC Legislature ( 1998-2015 ), the General Assembly has failed to establish justice for pre-birth human beings by actually passing any of these bills in both chambers. S.719 introduced on April 28, 2015 is the first time a proposed Personhood Constitutional AMENDMENT has been introduced.  It is time to LET THE PEOPLE VOTE !!!
