“Republican” super-majority SC House passes Orwellian S474 Heartbeat Bill – May 17, 2023
HORMONAL BIRTH CONTROL WORKS BOTH CONTRACEPTIVELY AND ABORTIFACIENTLY.
S474 Heartbeat Bill as passed by the South Carolina House May 17, 2023 will DECREASE surgical/RU486 “abortions” recorded in South Carolina.
However S474 Heartbeat Bill will also likely INCREASE “abortions” caused by abortifacient birth control drugs and devices.
Human Life begins at conception/fertilization, NOT implantation.
S474 tells a BIG LIE in Section 44-41-610.(4) by FALSELY including in the definition of “Contraceptive” a drug, device, or chemical that prevents “the implantation of a fertilized ovum* in a woman’s uterine wall after conception.” THAT IS NOT THE ACTION OF A CONTRACEPTIVE. THAT IS THE ACTION OF AN ABORTIFACIENT. THAT IS AN EARLY “ABORTION” AT ABOUT ONE WEEK OR SO AFTER CONCEPTION/FERTILIZATION. Notice in the definition of “Contraceptive” itself, it says, “AFTER CONCEPTION”. For S474 to claim a drug, device, or chemical that works AFTER CONCEPTION is somehow to be called a “Contraceptive” is ORWELLIAN. IT IS A LIE.
* This definition is further in medical, biological, and scientific ERROR by stating it is a “fertilized ovum” that implants in the woman’s uterine wall. That also is FALSE. It is NOT a one-celled “fertilized ovum” but a 200-300 cell human embryo termed a “blastocyst” which implants in the endometrial lining of the woman’s uterus at 6 to 12 days AFTER conception/fertilization. This human embryo is living and exhibiting cell division (mitosis) as it has grown from a one-cell fertilized ovum into a 200-300 cell blastocyst at the time of implantation about one-week or so AFTER CONCEPTION/FERTILIZATION.

COVENANT PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH (CPC) RESOLUTION ON ABORTIFACIENTS
Generations Radio and Covenant Presbyterian Church denomination Resolution re: ABORTIFACIENTS
– Deaths of 6,750,000 babies per year caused by intrauterine devices (IUD’s) in the United States.
– Studies have found the Plan B pill acts as an abortifacient 80 – 92% of the time.
‘Yes, Some Contraceptives Are Abortifacients’
November 4, 2016
“Pro-abortion-rights activists employ a neat semantic trick to evade and ignore the scientific details of abortifacient drugs: redefining “pregnancy” to mean “the implantation of an embryo in the uterine lining.” Thus any drug that prevents implantation of an existing embryo prevents pregnancy rather than aborting an existing one. Semantics aside, the crucial, underlying question is whether these birth-control methods cause embryonic death.”
“As Donna Harrison has explained at NRO, an IUD’s manipulation of the hormone progesterone causes a woman’s body to reject any embryo that might be formed after ovulation, rather than wholly stopping ovulation from occurring. The copper material in some IUDs has been shown to be toxic to an embryo, leading to its death or, if it survives, abnormal development. Furthermore, an IUD’s manipulation of the uterine lining accounts for the fact that, among women who become pregnant while using an IUD, there is a high rate of ectopic pregnancy, in which the embryo implants somewhere outside the uterus.”
‘ORWELLIAN S474 HEARTBEAT BILL INCLUDES FALSELY DEFINING “CONTRACEPTIVE” AS ALSO PREVENTING IMPLANTATION, WHICH OCCURS APPROX. ONE WEEK AFTER CONCEPTION !!! // AS A RESULT, S474 IN EFFECT, ALTHOUGH NOT EXPLICITLY STATED, IS THEREFORE EFFECTUATING A FALSE DEFINITION FOR EARLY ACTUAL ONE-WEEK OR SO “ABORTIONS” AS CONTRACEPTION !!!’
