The purpose of Personhood legislation is to establish justice for all pre-birth human beings, recognizing the Creator God-given unalienable right to life of every human being as a “person”, in law, at fertilization, and that without exception, because God’s Word says, “Thou shalt not kill (murder).” Exodus 20:13, KJV

[ Excerpt, emphasis added ]
Christian believes that “life begins at conception.” He says we have a “responsibility to the unborn” and that the “unborn should be protected.” He says in the law a person “can be charged with a crime if we kill a fetus.” He emphasized that abortion is a “federally driven issue” but that the “5th and 14th Amendments say each person has a right to life.”
Regarding the recent Greenville Women’s Clinic news violating state law concerning improper disposal of aborted babies as “medical waste”, he said it was “reprehensible to God’s creation.” Stegmaier emphasized that as a people we must “return to a notion of accountability.” He said he believes in “personhood of the fetus.”

Re: Personhood Legislation Position Statement
This letter is in response to your request for my position on personhood legislation. I pledge to defend all preborn lives, without exception, by granting my full support to personhood legislation if I am elected to the South Carolina Senate. By “full support” I mean co-sponsoring personhood legislation, voting in favor of personhood at every opportunity (including procedural votes such as recall motions, special order motions, tabling motions, cloture votes, and committee votes), and using all positional powers to move personhood forward without delay.
