“Good” is the Enemy of God’s Best*
Personhood legislation recognizes the Creator God-given unalienable right to life of every human being as a natural “person” beginning at fertilization, in statutory/constitutional law.
In South Carolina, Personhood Bills to Establish Justice and END child-murder by “abortion” were first introduced in the SC Legislature in February 1998, in both the SC House and SC Senate, and have been active in the SC Legislature every year since, for now 23 years.
There have been numerous Judiciary Subcommittee Hearings for Personhood Bills in both the SC House and SC Senate over the years ( See ChristianLifeandLiberty.net, RTL Act of SC page, and Personhood Act page; see also ChristiansforPersonhood.com ).
In April 2005, H.3213 actually passed the full SC House of Representatives, albeit with a fatal flaw rape exception unacceptably allowing use of an abortifacient drug.
‘South Carolina House Passes Personhood Bill’ (with fatal flaw)
– April 14, 2005
In 2016 (S.719), and again in 2018 (S.217), Personhood Bills were passed by the full Senate Judiciary Committee, and placed on the full SC Senate Calendar. However the Senate “Republican” Leadership did not promptly advance the bills, and ran out the session clock.
As often in years past, incremental, child-murder regulation legislation took priority for the “Republican” Leadership in 2019. This effectively took up 2019, 2020 (along with COVID), and 2021.
Now that the Heartbeat Bill is passed and out of the way, will the Leadership of the “Republican” super-majorities (65%) in both the SC House and SC Senate take up the Personhood Bills already filed in each chamber ( H.3568 and S.381 ) ?
* paraphrase from Oswald Chambers,
“My Utmost for His Highest”
Incremental Bills that regulate child-murder by “abortion” are not good, they are evil.
Incremental Bills perpetuate child-murder by “abortion”.
Incremental Bills are the Enemies of Personhood Bills.
