“Personhood” is the key to ENDING “abortion” in the United States

“Personhood” recognizes the Creator God-given, unalienable right to life of every human being as a natural person, beginning at fertilization, in statutory and/or constitutional law.

Appellants’ Legal Brief
(Governor McMaster, et al.)
https://protect-us.mimecast.com/s/fBA1Cqxo2QUZNv5ETZxLUV?domain=click.icptrack.com

E-page #12 of the Appellants’ Legal Brief identifies the (pro-“abortion”) plaintiffs who sued to stop the Heartbeat Bill from going into effect, as “three abortion clinics and one of their owners”.

South Carolina has three “abortion” centers:  Planned Parenthood in Charleston; Planned Parenthood in Columbia; and Greenville Women’s “Clinic” in the Upstate, the last of which is co-owned by abortionist (mass-murderer) Terry Buffkin, who is also one of the lawsuit plaintiffs.

As indicated in the statistics table below prepared by SC DHEC, these three “abortion” centers committed [ Note: not “provided” ! ] approximately 99% of the 5,101 child-murders by “abortion” committed within SC in 2019, as reported to DHEC (as required by SC Law):

Notes:

1) The SC Heartbeat Law does not Establish Justice, as required by God (Exodus 20:13, Matthew 19:18, Amos 5:15, Micah 6:8, Proverbs 21:3, Psalm 82:1-4, Psalm 89:14, Psalm 97:2, Romans 13:1-4, KJV), and as included in the US Constitution’s Preamble, which the SC Governor and SC Legislators take an Oath to uphold.

2) Despite the misguided, hyperbolic claims made by some, the Heartbeat bill is not the greatest or strongest (so-called) “pro-life” legislation ever passed by the SC Legislature in the state’s history.

Prior to Roe, the 1962 SC Code of Laws was much stronger:

Volume 4, Title 16 Abortion
Sections 16-82 and 16-83

“Bad Fruit” of Years of Ecumenical Compromise and Disobedience to Biblical Doctrine of Separation: SBC Convention Messengers’ Dilution of Resolution to Abolish “Abortion”

SBC Convention Messengers’ Dilution of Resolution to Abolish “Abortion”

Southern Baptists rightly declare their belief in the inerrancy, authority, and sufficiency of God’s Word, the Bible.

How is it then, June 16, 2021, SBC Convention Messengers voted to compromise the “Abortion” Abolition Resolution by also still holding onto unjust, unbiblical, incrementalism ?

For decades, evangelicals have yoked up with Roman Catholics, and followed the lead    of  Vatican-proxy National Right to Life in pursuing the incremental regulation of    child-murder by “abortion”, instead of APPLYING GOD’S WORD, and seeking first and foremost to Establish Justice to END child-murder.  Joining with and following those who do NOT hold to the Bible as the final, supreme authority has been a disaster.

Personhood is Abolition

Published by:

Revised June 28, 2021

 

I understand there has been quite a bit of discussion online recently addressing the subjects of Personhood and the Abolitionist’s approach.

Let me begin by stating, Personhood is abolition.  Here in South Carolina, we have advocated passage of State personhood legislation continuously for the last 19 years since 1998 [ History of Personhood Legislation in South Carolina ( 1998 – 2016 )  ].

The current 2017 legislation in the SC Legislature is called the Personhood Act of South Carolina (S.217 / H.3530).

South Carolina Personhood legislation recognizes the Creator God-given, unalienable right to life of every human being as a “person” beginning at fertilization, in SC law.

In my opinion, we will need to pass Personhood legislation, and then we will very likely need interposition of Lesser Magistrates to enforce it once the law is codified and on the books if the passage of Personhood legislation occurs first at the State level.

Personhood and Interposition are NOT mutually exclusive.  Quite the contrary.

The way I see it, Personhood is needed first to establish contemporaneous statutory or State constitutional legal legitimacy in the eyes of the citizens of whatever State jurisdiction is involved which has determined in their day, to take a righteous stand against child-murder; and then interposition of Lesser Magistrates would likely be needed to enforce it ( keeping in mind none have so far enforced marriage though over 30 States have constitutional bans against sodomite/lesbian so-called “marriage” [ sic ] ).

If Federal Personhood legislation is passed, such as US Rep. Jody Hice’s ( R-GA ) re-introduction of his ( formerly US Rep. Paul Broun’s ) bill, HR 586 [ without  Creator-denying “species homo sapiens” term ! ]                                      (https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/586), then perhaps interposition by State officials would not be necessary.  If however, SCOTUS “Justices” further violate their Oaths and Constitutional function by overthrowing legislation such as HR 586, there is the further step available of US Constitution, Article III, Section 2 legislation in which the US Congress has the authority and power to restrict the appellate jurisdiction of the US Supreme Court, such as in HR 2761 which was introduced in the 114th Congress (https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-bill/2761/text).

For those opposed to Personhood efforts, I wonder how many have listened to, or read the transcript of, the October 11, 1972 Second Oral Argument of Roe v Wade, where the “basic constitutional question, initially“, “critical to this case, was [ and is ] whether or not an unborn child is recognized in law as a “person”.  Once that is done, then the matter becomes legally inarguable; establishing legal recognition of the Creator God-given unalienable right to life of all human beings here in the United States, according to our Federal and State Constitutions, beginning at fertilization, with no “exceptions”.

It is simple, short legislation, applying a present day, inarguably recognizable legal standard, if there is the WILL to do it !

“PERSONHOOD” is the key to ENDING child-murder-by-“abortion”A plain reading of the 5th and 14th Amendments of the US Constitution, and analogous due process and equal protection language in the State Constitutions [ for example, Article I., Section 3. of the South Carolina Constitution ], indicates that legal status and therefore protection of constitutional rights, is recognized for “PERSONS” in these provisions. The issue of personhood for the “fetus” as being the preeminently critical issue was specifically addressed by a US Supreme Court Justice during the October 11, 1972

Roe v. Wade Oral Reargument.  [ Go to these internet links to both a transcript and the actual audio of the October 11, 1972 Roe v. Wade Oral Reargument. ]

THE KEY, BASIC, AND INITIAL CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUE IN ROE V. WADE (1973), CRITICAL TO THE CASE, WAS WHETHER OR NOT THE “FETUS” ( PRE-BIRTH HUMAN BEING ), WOULD BE RECOGNIZED IN LAW AS A LEGAL “PERSON”:

 

Excerpt from transcript (edited) of Reargument ( October 11, 1972 ) of Roe v. Wade before the US Supreme Court:

 

US Supreme Court Justice:
“And the basic constitutional question, initially, is whether or not an unborn fetus is a person, isn’t it ?” 
[ p. 827 ]

Mr. Robert Flowers (Assistant Attorney General, State of Texas):
“Yes, sir, and entitled to the constitutional protection.” 
[ p. 827 ]

US Supreme Court Justice:  “And that’s critical to this case, is it not?”  [ p. 828 ]

Mr. Robert Flowers (Assistant Attorney General, State of Texas):  “Yes, sir, it is. … (continued).”  [ p. 828 ]

 

Child-murder-by-“abortion” could have been ENDED in America 44+ years and 59+ MILLION dead children ago with FEDERAL Personhood Legislation.
