Senator Richard Cash presentation [ View video from 37:50 – 44:00, approx. six minutes ]

State House, Senate Chamber
Excerpt [ Begin 42:40 ]:

Senator Cash:

“There are many important issues that we will debate in the Senate.  There are some urgent issues that we need to debate, but nothing is more important, and nothing is more urgent, than debating the Personhood Bill.”

“It is not a Republican issue.
It is not a Democratic [sic – Democrat ] issue.
It is not a black issue.
It is not a white issue.
It is not even just a woman’s issue or a man’s issue.
It is fundamentally at its core, a human rights issue.”

“So I ask at the first available opportunity, that we deal with this question:  ‘Who qualifies as a member of the human community, and is deserving of legal protection?’  It is a question that this body needs to debate fully on this Senate floor and to vote on.  Thank you very much.”

Republican Senate Majority Leader, and Chairman of the Senate Rules Committee, Senator Massey has not signed on as a S.217 co-sponsor, but has stated he will vote for the bill when he has the opportunity.

Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Senator Rankin, and Senator Senn have not yet agreed to support S.217.

Senator Campsen has been a long-time opponent of Personhood legislation ( although when SC Personhood legislation was first introduced in February 1998, then-Representative Campsen was actually a co-sponsor !? ).
