Child-Murder ‘Regulation’ Heartbeat Bill Passed by Republican-Majority SC Senate Committee 9Y – 6N

– November 5, 2019


Incremental Child-Murder ‘Regulation’ Bills like the SC Heartbeat Bill do NOT Establish Justice …

SC Senators seated at Senate Medical Affairs Committee rostrum above (from L to R):

Upper tier: Senator Margie Matthews (D), Senator Tom Corbin (R), Senator Kevin Johnson (D), Senator Thomas Alexander (R), Senator Floyd Nicholson (D), Senator Brad Hutto (D) [obscured], Senator Harvey Peeler (R), Senator Danny Verdin (R) [Chairman], Staff person Gene Hogan, Senator Shane Martin (R), Senator John Scott (D), Senator Tom Davis (R), Senator Paul Campbell (R), Senator Marlon Kimpson (D).

Lower tier: Senator Richard Cash (R), Senator Mike Gambrell (R).

Three votes were taken in the full Senate Medical Affairs Committee November 5 regarding Heartbeat Bill H3020:

1) Vote #1 was on whether to adopt the H3020 Senate Subcommittee version of the Heartbeat Bill which had been amended in that subcommittee to remove the exceptions for rape and incest which were present in the Bill as a result of the rape and incest exceptions Amendment sponsored by selectively pro-“abortion” Rep Nancy Mace (R) adopted in the SC House on April 24, 2019. The full Senate Medical Affairs Committee failed to adopt the Subcommittee version on a vote of 6 Y – 9 N. Six Republicans voted in favor of adoption, all six Democrats plus three Republicans; Peeler, Davis, and Campbell, voted against adoption.

2) Vote #2 was on whether to adopt selectively pro-“abortion” Senator Tom Davis’ (R) rape and incest exceptions Amendment, which added a police filing report requirement for the “exceptions” [child-murders] to be permitted.  This vote was 9 Y – 6 N, all nine Republicans voting Yes, all six Democrats voting No for the Davis Amendment.

[ Note: It is unclear to this writer whether at the time of this Vote #2, whether the version of H3020 before the Senate Medical Affairs Committee under consideration was the amended version passed out of the SC House on April 25 including the Mace rape and incest exceptions Amendment, or whether it was the original unamended version of H3020 as introduced in the SC House. ]

3) Vote #3 was on whether to favorably pass the overall H3020 Heartbeat Bill including the Davis rape and incest exceptions Amendment. The Committee voted 9 Y – 6 N in favor of passage. All nine Republicans voted Yes for the incremental child-murder “regulation” H3020 Heartbeat Bill with the rape and incest exceptions. All six Democrats voted against.

On November 5, 2019 in the SC Senate Medical Affairs Committee chaired by Senator Danny Verdin (R – Laurens), all nine Republicans voted YES to favorable passage of the unjust, unbiblical, incremental child-murder regulation H3020 Heartbeat Bill, which was also even amended in the full Committee to adopt the rape and incest exceptions Amendment offered by selectively pro-“abortion” Senator Tom Davis (R).

The very concept of the Heartbeat Bill is a rejection of God’s commandments.

GOD says:

“Thou shalt not kill (murder).”

Exodus 20:13, KJV

JESUS, the Son of God Who is God says:

“Thou shalt do no murder, …”

Matthew 19:18, KJV

“Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: …”

Amos 5:15, KJV

The Heartbeat Bill allows the extermination of ALL the unborn children prior to the “abortion” mill murder-doctor’s detection of a heartbeat.  It is an abomination.

The Heartbeat Bill does NOT Establish Justice.

Human Life begins at conception (fertilization), not heartbeat.

Being Biblically “Pro-Life” means agreeing with God regarding the Sanctity of Human Life which He Created !!

The Heartbeat Bill is NOT a Pro-Life Bill, it is another incrementalist perversion pushed by Romish/ecumenical “pro-life” [sic] / “pro-family” [sic] establishment groups, whose support of such incremental regulation of child-murder gives political cover to Republican establishment leadership to continue pursuing incrementalism as has been the case in SC for over 25 years.

PERSONHOOD legislation was introduced in the SC Legislature in 1998, and has been active every year over the last 21 years.

Pass Personhood now ! – Stop enabling incrementalism.

The SC Heartbeat Bill does not Establish Justice …

Those who support legislation to incrementally ‘regulate’ child-murder demonstrate a lack of understanding of the Nature and Purpose of Law; such legislation which “allow[s] or injoin[s] us to commit” child-murder, is an offense to “both the natural and the divine.”  How many persons must a murderer murder to be a murderer?  Answer.  One.

Incremental Child-Murder ‘Regulation’ Heartbeat Bill (H3020) passed SC Senate Medical Affairs Subcommittee by vote of 4 Y to 3 N

– October 22, 2019

SC Senate Gressette Building (Room 308)
vicinity State House, Columbia, South Carolina


October 22, 2019 at the SC Senate Medical Affairs Subcommittee Meeting for the H3020 Heartbeat Bill:

SC Senators seated (from L to R):
Senator Mike Gambrell (R), Senator Marlon Kimpson (D), Senator Kevin Johnson (D), Senator Shane Martin (R), Staff person Gene Hogan, Senator Tom Corbin (R), Senator Margie Bright-Matthews (D), Senator Richard Cash (R)

CCL Note: In lower right hand corner of photo, in the audience, facing the Subcommittee rostrum ( back of head to camera ), is Rep. John McCravy (R-Greenwood), primary sponsor of H3020 Heartbeat Bill.  At the first Senate Subcommittee Hearing on September 10, 2019, Rep. John McCravy explained the Bill and asserted the “US Supreme Court, … can change the viability standard to be measured by the heartbeat”.  His specious argument is the US Supreme Court can in essence decide to change the present meaning of the term “viable”.  At present, “Fetal viability … is the ability of a fetus to survive outside the uterus.”  If the U.S. Supreme Court is to uphold the SC Heartbeat Bill (H3020) within the current Roe framework, Rep. McCravy opines the U.S. Supreme Court could change the meaning of the term “viable” to mean the detection of the presence of the heartbeat.

ROE v. WADE (1973), No. 70-18
Argued: December 13, 1971 and October 11, 1972;  Decided: January 22, 1973
https://caselaw.findlaw.com/us-supreme-court/410/113.html

However, the legal case is much stronger to END “abortion” entirely [ instead of just further incrementally “regulating” the murder of children and allowing the continued killing of ALL pre-born children prior to the detection of a heartbeat at six weeks  or so gestational age ], by establishing “Personhood” at fertilization, with no “exceptions”.  In the very text of the Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court Opinion it states, [Texas] argue[s] that the fetus is a “person” within the language and meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment … If this suggestion of personhood is established, the [pro-abortion] case, of course, collapses, [410 U.S. 113, 157] for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment.”

While the Roe Opinion is referring to establishing “personhood” within the meaning of the 14th Amendment, there is a basis for the argument that if a State established “personhood” in State law, it should be upheld under the 10th Amendment, as is incorporated in the language of 2019 SC Personhood Bill H3920, Section 1-1-340.

SC Senate Medical Affairs Subcommittee Meeting
Tuesday, October 22, 2019, 10:00 am

Voting “Yes” in favor of further incrementally “regulating” the murder of unborn children, and allowing all unborn children to continue to be killed before a heartbeat is detected (at about 6 weeks or later) were:

“Republican” Senators:

Shane Martin, Chairman
Richard Cash
Tom Corbin
Mike Gambrell

Voting against the H3020 Bill were three extremely pro-“abortion” Democrat Senators:

Kevin Johnson
Marlon Kimpson
Margie Matthews

_______________________________________

Conclusions:

1) Not one SC Republican Senator on the H3020 Senate Medical Affairs Subcommittee actually voted consistently on the final vote with God’s Word in the Sixth Commandment,

“Thou shalt not kill (murder).
Exodus 20:13, KJV

… or, with Matthew 19:18, KJV.

2) Not one SC Democrat Senator had any intention of voting consistently with God’s Word in the Sixth Commandment (Exodus 20:13, KJV), or, with Matthew 19:18, KJV, on the final vote.

Therefore, either by their actual unbiblical vote on the final vote (in the case of the “Republicans”), or by their pro-“abortion” motivation and intent on the final vote (in the case of the Democrats), NOT ONE SC SENATOR honored, obeyed, followed, and applied the Word of the Creator, as cited above.

And we wonder why after 46 plus years that same Creator God has not ENDED the killing of children in the womb in America, instead of that killing being incessantly, incrementally “regulated” and therefore PERPETUATED as it was once again today in this SC Senate Medical Affairs Subcommittee.

Jesus says,

“If ye love Me, keep My commandments.”
John 14:15

Did ANY of these seven SC Senators actually honor the commandments of Jesus Christ, Who is God the Son, by their vote on October 22 ?

Jesus Christ is “the King of kings, and Lord of lords”, now !   1 Timothy 6:15, KJV

‘SC Senate subcommittee passes “fetal heartbeat” bill minus rape, incest exceptions’
The bill will now be taken up by the full Senate Medical Affairs Committee before being discussed on the Senate floor
https://www.abccolumbia.com/2019/10/22/sc-senate-subcommittee-passes-fetal-heartbeat-bill-minus-rape-incest-exceptions/
Oct 22, 2019

[ Excerpts, emphasis added ]

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) ­ A bill that would ban virtually all abortions six weeks after conception in South Carolina moves closer to being discussed on the Senate floor.

The Senate Medical Affairs Subcommittee passed an amended version of the bill, which is now minus the rape and incest exception, in a 4-3 vote along party lines.

The bill is now going to be discussed by the full Medical Affairs committee before it could be brought up on the Senate floor.

Unlike the bill that passed the House, the bill the committee will review is without the rape and incest exception, an amendment that also passed along party lines.

continued…

The rape and incest exception was first added when the bill was discussed among the SC House of Representatives. House Bill 3020 passed in the House back in April with a vote of 70-31.

CCL Note: On April 24, 2019, THIRTY-THREE (33) SC House Republicans voted to allow the continued murder of children in the womb who were conceived in cases of rape or incest even after a heartbeat is detected.This pro-“abortion” amendment was sponsored by Rep. Nancy Mace in the full House Judiciary Committee:

‘Republican-Super-Majority SC House adopted Mace rape and incest ‘exceptions’ amendment to incremental Child-Murder Regulation ‘ HeartbeatBill

continued…

Some Senators say pushing this bill forward is a good step for those looking to protect the sanctity of life. However, Sen. Cash says if the rape and incest exception is put back into the bill, then he would not vote for it.

CCL Note: The entire Heartbeat Bill is One Big Exception !  By definition incremental child-murder “regulation” Heartbeat Bills allow the continued killing of ALL pre-born children prior to the detection of a heartbeat at six weeks or so gestational age.

ALL Heartbeat bills have a huge “EXCEPTION”
http://christiansforpersonhood.com/index.php/2019/04/08/all-heartbeat-bills-have-a-huge-exception/

continued…

The four Senators who voted in favor of the bill on the subcommittee were Sen. Cash, Senator Shane Martin (R-Spartanburg County, also the subcommittee chair), Senator Tom Corbin (R-Greenville County), and Senator Michael Gambrell (R-Anderson County).

The three Senators who voted against the bill were Senator Kimpson, Senator Bright Matthews, and Senator Kevin Johnson (D-Clarendon County).

The chairman of the Medical Affairs Committee is Senator Danny Verdin (R-Laurens County).

Some Senators believe the full Senate Medical Affairs Committee will meet at some point in the next few weeks to discuss the bill further, then move it along to the Senate floor in January.

“S.C. Republicans have acknowledged the proposal is part of an effort to spark a legal fight that gives the newly constituted U.S. Supreme Court an opportunity to overturn Roe v. Wade. They have said spending taxpayer dollars on that court challenge is worth it if it means preventing the thousands of abortions performed every year in South Carolina.”

The legal case is much stronger to END “abortion” entirely [ instead of just further incrementally “regulating” the murder of children and allowing the continued killing of ALL pre-born children prior to the detection of a heartbeat at six weeks or so gestational age ], by establishing “Personhood” at fertilization, with no “exceptions”.  In the very text of the Roe v. Wade  U.S. Supreme Court Opinion it states, [Texas] argue[s] that the fetus is a “person” within the language and meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment … If this suggestion of personhood is established, the [pro-abortion] case, of course, collapses, [410 U.S. 113, 157] for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment.”

While the Roe Opinion is referring to establishing “personhood” within the meaning of the 14th Amendment, there is a basis for the argument that if a State established “personhood” in State law, it should be upheld under the 10th Amendment, as is incorporated in the language of 2019 SC Personhood Bill H3920, Section 1-1-340.

‘SC senators advance bill banning most abortions after striking rape, incest exceptions’

Oct 22, 2019

[ Excerpts, emphasis added ]

COLUMBIA ­ State senators on Tuesday removed exceptions for rape and incest from a bill that bans abortions roughly six weeks after conception, potentially setting up a conflict with the House, which approved the exceptions earlier this year after contentious debate.

Senators in committee voted 4-3 to strike the exceptions, as proposed by Sen. Richard Cash, R-Powdersville, the chamber’s most ardent abortion foe. Another 4-3 vote advanced the measure to the full Medical Affairs Committee.

The bill, H.3020, would make it illegal to get an abortion in South Carolina after a fetal heartbeat has been detected, which occurs five to eight weeks into most pregnancies.

continued…

About two-thirds of abortions in South Carolina are conducted after six weeks of gestation, according to 2017 data from the state’s health department.

continued…

Abortion opponents across the country are hoping the time has come for a full U.S. Supreme Court review of the nation’s abortion laws.

CCL Note: So why not seek a “full U.S. Supreme Court review” on stronger, more solid legal ground, pass “Personhood” and Establish Justice !?  The incremental child-murder “regulation” Heartbeat Bills DO NOT ESTABLISH JUSTICE !

ROE v. WADE (1973), No. 70-18
Argued: December 13, 1971 and October 11, 1972;  Decided: January 22, 1973
https://caselaw.findlaw.com/us-supreme-court/410/113.html

continued…

Federal courts so far have not been favorable to the similar measures passed in at least five other states, including Georgia.  The Georgia measure was blocked from taking effect earlier this month, with federal District Court Judge Steve C. Jones saying it appeared incompatible with current law.

SC Senate Hearings (2) for Heartbeat Incremental Child-Murder ‘Regulation’ Bill H3020 – Sept 10, 2019

The SC Heartbeat Bill does not Establish Justice …

Those who support legislation to incrementally ‘regulate’ child-murder demonstrate a lack of understanding of the Nature and Purpose of Law; such legislation which “allow[s] or injoin[s] us to commit” child-murder, is an offense to “both the natural and the divine.”  How many persons must a murderer murder to be a murderer?  Answer.  One.

Note: The Conference Committee Report for H4000 State Budget was adopted in the SC House by a vote of 105 – 6 and in the SC Senate by a vote of 32 – 8, both votes occurring Tuesday, May 21, 2019.   H4000 was ratified on May 22, 2019, and next was sent to the SC Governor.

As this May 21 version of the SC State Budget approved by both the SC House and SC Senate contains funding for genocidal mass murderers Planned Parenthood (Section 33 – DHHS), and also contains funding for certain ‘Abortions’ in the State Health Insurance Plan (Section 108 – PEBA), that means the version of the SC State Budget as passed by the SC Legislature on May 21 still requires South Carolina taxpayers to fund PLANNED PARENTHOOD for now and to fund certain ‘Abortions’.  If even one child in the womb is murdered during FY 2019-2020 ( July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020 ) using funds appropriated in H4000 as approved May 21 by SC House members, and as approved May 21 by SC Senate members, as well as earlier applicable votes in the legislative process taken in the SC House and the SC Senate, then each and every House and Senate member voting to appropriate such money, or voting against efforts to stop the appropriation of such money, will consequently thereby be an accessory to murder before-the-fact, the fraudulent, unrighteous, immoral, and unconstitutional Opinion of the US Supreme Court in Roe v Wade notwithstanding.

Note: The SC DHHS funding of Planned Parenthood is NOT directly for surgical or RU-486 “abortions”, but for so-called “family planning funds”, which may include chemically abortifacient “birth control”. Any government (taxpayer) money given to Planned Parenthood helps sustain their operation as a child-murder center.  Two of the three stand-alone child-murder centers remaining in South Carolina are operated by Planned Parenthood [ located in Charleston and Columbia ].

33.25.      (DHHS: Family Planning Funds)  The State has enacted Section 43-5-1185 of the 1976 Code that prohibits state funds, directly or indirectly, from being utilized by Planned Parenthood for abortions, abortion services or procedures, or administrative functions related to abortions. Having prevented Planned Parenthood from performing abortions with state funds, once the federal injunction is lifted ***, the Department of Health and Human Services may not direct any federal funds to Planned Parenthood. An otherwise qualified organization may not be disqualified from receipt of these funds because of its affiliation with an organization that provides abortion services, provided that the affiliated organization that provides abortion services is independent of the qualified organization. An independent affiliate that provides abortion services must be separately incorporated from any organization that receives these funds. An organization that provides abortion services in compliance with Part 1.B., Proviso 33.12 of this act is excepted from the above restriction on state family planning funds and may receive state family planning funds.

*** In other words, DEFUNDING OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD DOES NOT GO INTO EFFECT NOW !
That is, for now, funding for Planned Parenthood goes on “business as usual” !!!  This is a fake “pro-life” [ sic ] proviso !!!  The federal injunction blocking this particular legal / legislative strategy to defund Planned Parenthood has been in place since August 2018 !!!

Why did the SC House and SC Senate not adopt the effective proviso from the SC Governor’s Proposed Executive Budget [Proviso 33.24] which utilized a different legislative strategy to defund Planned Parenthood ?

*** In other words, THE TAX-FUNDED MURDER OF CERTAIN CHILDREN IN THE WOMB IS STILL AUTHORIZED IN THE SOUTH CAROLINA STATE BUDGET !!!

This is in the SC State Budget passed and ratified and sent to the SC Governor by the Fake ‘Pro-Life’ [sic] Republican-Super-Majority SC HOUSE and the Fake ‘Pro-Life’ [sic] Republican-Majority SC SENATE !!!

Note: The Conference Committee Report for H4000 State Budget was adopted in the SC House by a vote of 105 – 6 and in the SC Senate by a vote of 32 – 8, both votes occurring Tuesday, May 21, 2019.   H4000 was ratified on May 21, 2019, and next is sent to the SC Governor.

As this May 21 version of the SC State Budget approved by both the SC House and SC Senate contains funding for genocidal mass murderers Planned Parenthood (Section 33 – DHHS), and also contains funding for certain ‘Abortions’ in the State Health Insurance Plan (Section 108 – PEBA), that means the version of the SC State Budget as passed by the SC Legislature on May 21 still requires South Carolina taxpayers to fund PLANNED PARENTHOOD for now and to fund certain ‘Abortions’.  If even one child in the womb is murdered during FY 2019-2020 ( July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020 ) using funds appropriated in H4000 as approved May 21 by SC House members, and as approved May 21 by SC Senate members, as well as earlier applicable votes in the legislative process taken in the SC House and the SC Senate, then each and every House and Senate member voting to appropriate such money, or voting against efforts to stop the appropriation of such money, will consequently thereby be an accessory to murder before-the-fact, the fraudulent, unrighteous, immoral, and unconstitutional Opinion of the US Supreme Court in Roe v Wade notwithstanding.

Note: The SC DHHS funding of Planned Parenthood is NOT directly for surgical or RU-486 “abortions”, but for so-called “family planning funds”, which may include chemically abortifacient “birth control”. Any government (taxpayer) money given to Planned Parenthood helps sustain their operation as a child-murder center.  Two of the three stand-alone child-murder centers remaining in South Carolina are operated by Planned Parenthood [ located in Charleston and Columbia ].
