SC State House
“Republican” near super-majority (30R – 16D) [65% R] SC Senate concurs with SC House Orwellian S474 Heartbeat Bill – May 23, 2023
By a vote of 27 Y – 19 N, with only the three pro-“abortion” RINO female senators (Gustafson, Senn, Shealy) voting No out of the 30 Republicans, the SC Senate concurred with the SC House Amendments to S474.
So features of S474 in the final Bill as passed May 23, 2023 to be sent to the SC Governor include:
1. Features 1) and 2) below were also part of the original SC Senate version of S474 passed February 9, 2023 by a vote of 28 Y to 12 N.
2. Features 3) and 4) and 5) were CHANGES ADDED in the SC House Judiciary Constitutional Laws Subcommittee as part of the Jordan (“/McCravy”) strike all and insert Amendment #1 on May 9, 2023, and were retained by the SC House of Representatives as passed on May 17, 2023 (May 16/17) by a vote of 82 Y to 33 N on Second Reading, and as passed on May 17, 2023 by a vote of 82 Y to 32 N on Third Reading. The Senate concurred with the House version on May 23, 2023 by a vote of 27 Y – 19 N (without further Amendments).
1) Bans “abortions” after about 6 weeks, with multiple “exceptions”, thereby DECREASING surgical and RU486 “abortions” in South Carolina.
2) Section 44-41-610.(4)
Re-defines the term “Contraceptive” in SC Law [ Section 44-41-610. ] to also include a drug, device, or chemical that prevents implantation in the uterus of a one-week old or so human being after conception (“blastocyst” of 200-300 cells), which is actually an early “abortion” . This re-definition is a perversion of medical science and is Orwellian.
3) SECTION 3. / Section 44-41-90.(A)
CODIFIES in permanent SC Law the FUNDING of certain “abortions” in the State Health Insurance Plan (instead of appearing annually in the State Budget, Section 108/PEBA, Part 1B Provisos).
S474 provides for FUNDING of “abortions” through the State Health Insurance Plan in the cases of so-called life/serious health of the mother [ despite the counter-indication of the www.DublinDeclaration.com ], rape/incest, and so-called fatal fetal “anomaly” [sic – euthanasia].
[ This after repeated Annual SC State Budget battles over many years in both the SC House and the SC Senate over the funding of State Health Insurance Plan “abortions”, going back well over a decade to at least 2010 in the SC House and SC Senate !!! ]
4) SECTION 5. / Section 38-71-146
Mandates all private, group, and HMO insurance policies in the State cover “contraceptives” [sic], which consistent with the perversion of the definition of “contraceptive” also includes abortifacients, thereby likely INCREASING the number of early “abortions” by abortifacient birth control in South Carolina (there is a religious exemption).
5) SECTION 11.
Provides “contraceptives”‘ [sic], which includes abortifacients, to the DEPENDENTS (e.g., young adults) of employees covered by the State “Health” Plan, with which to FORNICATE, facilitating corruption of the morals of youth, and likely INCREASING the number of early “abortions” by abortifacient birth control in South Carolina.
1) S474 once again incrementally regulates [ PERPETUATES ] the murder of children in the womb; S474 is NOT a “pro-life” bill, it is a pro-“abortion” bill.
2) ORWELLIAN S474 HEARTBEAT BILL INCLUDES FALSELY DEFINING “CONTRACEPTIVE” AS ALSO PREVENTING IMPLANTATION, WHICH OCCURS ONE WEEK OR SO AFTER CONCEPTION !!!
HOW CAN A CONTRACEPTIVE BE DEFINED AS WORKING 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 !!!
THIS IS ORWELLIAN. THIS RE-DEFINITION OF “CONTRACEPTIVE” TO INCLUDE ABORTIFACIENT FUNCTIONALITY VIOLATES TRUE BIOLOGY, TRUE SCIENCE, AND PLAIN ENGLISH.
Human life begins at conception/fertilization, NOT implantation.
“… JUSTICE STANDETH AFAR OFF; FOR TRUTH IS FALLEN IN THE STREET” Isaiah 59:14, KJV
“THERE IS NO TRUTH, …, NOR KNOWLEDGE OF GOD IN THE LAND. Hosea 4:2, KJV
3) S474 codifies in permanent SC Law the FUNDING of certain “abortions” in the State “Health” Plan; S474 is NOT a “pro-life” bill, it is a pro-“abortion”-FUNDING bill.
4) S474 mandates birth control, including abortifacients, to be covered by all private, group, and HMO insurance policies in the State (there is a religious exemption), thereby likely INCREASING abortifacient birth control “abortions” in South Carolina; S474 is NOT a pro-life bill, it is a pro-“abortion” bill.
5) S474 provides birth control, including abortifacients, to the DEPENDENTS (e.g. young adults) of employees on the State “Health” Plan, facilitating FORNICATION by young people, and likely INCREASING abortifacient birth control “abortions” in South Carolina; S474 is NOT a pro-chastity bill, it is a pro-fornication bill; S474 is NOT a pro-life bill, it is a pro-“abortion” bill.
2023-2024 Bill S474
Paul the apostle, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, warned against doing evil that good may come (see Romans 3:8, KJV).
The ends do NOT justify the means. That is jesuitical, not Biblical thinking.
The Bible says,
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter !
Isaiah 5:20, KJV
We have known how to END “abortion” for over 50 years; it’s written right in the text of the 1973 Roe v Wade Opinion*: PERSONHOOD.
* [ IX. A. ] “If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s [pro-“abortion”] case, of course, collapses, [410 U.S. 113, 157] for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the Amendment.”
When the true church of the Lord Jesus Christ agrees with God and unites around the purpose of Establishing Justice (and not just incrementally regulating “abortion” to try to “save babies”), then child-murder by “abortion” will END.
What is the chief purpose of man ? It is to GLORIFY GOD.
Romans 11:36; I Corinthians 10:31, KJV
Does this Bill S474 Glorify God ? How can it when it violates His Word in so many ways [ e.g., Exodus 20:13; Matthew 19:18; 1 Corinthians 6:9,10,18, KJV ]
“Thou shalt not kill (murder).”
Exodus 20:13, KJV
Commentaries on the Laws of England (1765-1769)
[ excerpts, emphasis added ]
Sect. 2: Of the Nature of Laws in General
English jurist William Blackstone wrote over 250 years ago:
“Upon these two foundations, the law of nature and the law of revelation, depend all human laws; that is to say, no human laws should be suffered to contradict these.”
He described the revealed or divine law thusly:
“The doctrines thus delivered we call the revealed or divine law, and they are to be found only in the holy scriptures.”
Blackstone specifically addressed the crime of murder:
“To instance in the case of murder: this is expressly forbidden by the divine, and demonstrably by the natural law; and, from these prohibitions, arises the true unlawfulness of this crime. … Nay, if any human law should allow or injoin us to commit it, we are bound to transgress that human law, or else we must offend both the natural and the divine.”
This Bill S474 allows the crime of murder to be committed. S474 is therefore an offense to “both the natural and the divine”.
The Bible says,
“Where there is no vision, the people perish: …”
Proverbs 29:18, KJV
