Heartbeat Bill H3020 is on full SC House Calendar for April 9; however Personhood Bill H3920 is still not yet even assigned to ConLaws Subcomm by House Judiciary Chairman Rep Peter McCoy.

“Good” is the Enemy of God’s Best.

(paraphrase of Oswald Chambers’ ‘My Utmost For His Highest’ daily devotional)

‘The Test Of Self-interest’
My Utmost For His Highest ( May 25 )

“The great enemy of the life of faith in God is not sin, but the good which is not good enough. The good is always the enemy of the best.”

Heartbeat Bill H3020 passed BOTH ConLaws Subcomm (3-2) AND full House Judiciary Comm (15-7) on Tuesday, April 2; and H3020 is now on the Calendar of the full SC House for April 9:

ALL Heartbeat bills have a huge “EXCEPTION”

Published by:

Christians for Personhood (CP)
April 5, 2019

In NY Times article below, Georgia RTL supported Georgia’s recently passed incremental child-murder regulation Heartbeat Bill, until rape and incest exceptions were added. For heaven’s sake, by definition, ALL Heartbeat bills have a huge “EXCEPTION” – i.e., allowing the killing of ALL children in the womb who are less than six weeks old !!! Heartbeat bills do NOT “establish Justice” as required by the Preamble of the US Constitution (and therefore inherent in Oath of Office taken by legislators and governors); are contrary to Scripture; and are contrary to a principled, Biblically-sound position of supporting only Personhood, or other legislation which completely abolishes child-murder by “abortion”.

‘Georgia Is Latest State to Pass Fetal Heartbeat Bill as Part of Growing Trend’

Christians for Personhood comments (cont’d):

Georgia RTL is essentially founding affiliate of so-called “Personhood” Alliance:

National Personhood Alliance | Georgia Right to Life
http://www.grtl.org/?q=national-personhood-alliance

However there are leaders within the Romish/ecumenical “Personhood” Alliance who do NOT only support principled, Biblically-sound Personhood legislation.

In fact, a leading voice advocating passage of the Ohio incremental child-murder regulation Heartbeat bill is a president emeritus of the (so-called) Personhood Alliance: Molly Smith, president of the Ohio affiliate of the “Personhood” (sic) Alliance, called Cleveland Right to Life.

Leadership – Personhood Alliance
https://personhood.org/about-us/leadership

The “Personhood” Alliance leaders are NOT all ONLY supporting principled, Biblically-sound Personhood legislation. That is NOT a position faithful to the Word of God, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Matthew 19:18
Amos 5:15

Additional Christians for Personhood ( CP ) comments:

“Christian” [sic] America is a bloody nation. We have murdered over 61 MILLION (reported) children while inside the wombs of their mothers.  This number does not even include all the preborn children “aborted” (murdered) chemically by abortifacient so-called “birth control”, including birth control pills, which function pharmacologically as both contraceptives and as abortifacients.

CHEMICAL ABORTION
Pastors for Life, Easley, SC, 1996

Every one of these children was created in the image of God, and the unjust sacrifice of their lives is an offense to God, defiling His sanctuary, and profaning His Holy Name ( Leviticus 20:3, KJV ).

‘I AM A PERSON’ – 7 weeks from conception
and “How To Receive Salvation of the Spirit”


The United States is the world ’s third largest child-murder-by-“abortion” country, behind just Communist China, and Russia.

The Biblical consequences for shedding innocent blood include more bloodshed ( Hosea 4:2 ), tyranny ( Psalm 106:37-44 ), invasion ( 2 Kings 17:5-23 ) and war ( 2 Kings 24:1-4 ).  These verses cited are only examples. Read the books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel, and more.  The Bible is full of promises of blessing for obedience, and judgment for disobedience for any nation, for all nations ( Proverb 14:34, Psalm 9:17 ).  Read Deuteronomy chapter 28 and Leviticus chapter 26 ( KJV ).

America is suffering ongoing bloodshed domestically ( e.g., mass shootings, youth violence, police shootings ), and America is under tyranny from our own government ( financial and civil liberties ).  America is suffering invasion ( 10 to 30+ Million Illegal Aliens ), and America has suffered from involvement in multiple wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Libya, and Syria ( Iran ?).

Psalm 106:37-44, KJV was cited earlier.  Perhaps the Mercy of God was shown to our country as many Christians in America came to the place of this last verse ( v. 44 ), crying out to God in our affliction, as Election Day, November 8, 2016 approached and arrived:

“Nevertheless He regarded their affliction, when He heard their cry.
  Psalm 106:-44, KJV

After God showed US Great Mercy in the November 8, 2016 Election, are Christians now crying out to God

to Establish Justice for the children being “drawn unto death” ( Proverbs 24:10-12, KJV ) in America’s child-murder by “abortion” centers ?

Personhood is Abolition
Personhood is abolition.  Here in South Carolina, we have advocated passage of State personhood legislation continuously for the last 21 years since February 1998

[ History of Personhood Legislation in South Carolina ( 1998 – 2018 ) ].

– South Carolina Personhood legislation up through 2018 has recognized the Creator God-given, unalienable right to life of every human being as a “person” beginning at fertilization, in SC law.

SOUTH CAROLINA (2005) – First (only) time Personhood legislation passes SC House of Representatives, albeit with fatal flaw rape “exception” amendment allowing abortifacient drug use

Personhood legislation (Bill – H.3213) passed in the South Carolina House on Second Reading, April 13, 2005 by a vote of 95 – 18, albeit with a fatal flaw rape EXCEPTION amendment for a so-called “morning-after-pill” (an abortifacient causing chemical abortions)  that was added to the bill on the SC House floor prior to passage which allowed for this abortifacient drug to be given to a woman in the case of rape.  The bill then passed as amended on Third Reading, April 14, 2005 by a vote of 91 – 10, and was sent to the SC Senate, where it was later assigned to the Judiciary Committee.  Two Senate Judiciary Subcommittee Hearings were held, however no Subcommittee debate was conducted, and no vote was taken on the bill, effectively killing H.3213 for the 2005-2006 Session.

– Primary August 14: Benjamin Dunn, Christian Stegmaier

____________________________________
____________________________________

There are four Republican candidates running in the August 14 Primary of the SC State Senate District 20 Special Election

Two* of these Republican candidates are confirmed supporters of SC Personhood Legislation:


Benjamin Dunn

Christian Stegmaier

* Note: Both of these men are professing Christians and attorneys.

The purpose of Personhood legislation is to establish justice for all pre-birth human beings, recognizing  the Creator God-given unalienable right to life of every human being as a “person”, in law, at fertilization, and that without exception, because God’s Word says, “Thou shalt not kill (murder).”  Exodus 20:13, KJV

SC Senate District #20 includes parts of both Richland and Lexington Counties, running from White Rock to Ballentine and Irmo, along I-26 and I-126, thru downtown Columbia, continuing southeast thru Shandon and other Columbia neighborhoods to I-77, and vicinity [ Map ].

Christian Stegmaier candidate for Senate Seat #20

by Michael Reed | July 11, 2018
http://thestandardsc.org/exclusive-interview-christian-stegmaier-candidate-for-senate-seat-20

[ Excerpt, emphasis added ]


Christian believes that “life begins at conception.” He says we have a “responsibility to the unborn” and that the “unborn should be protected.” He says in the law a person “can be charged with a crime if we kill a fetus.” He emphasized that abortion is a “federally driven issue” but that the “5th and 14th Amendments say each person has a right to life.”

Regarding the recent Greenville Women’s Clinic news violating state law concerning improper disposal of aborted babies as “medical waste”, he said it was “reprehensible to God’s creation.” Stegmaier emphasized that as a people we must “return to a notion of accountability.” He said he believes in “personhood of the fetus.”

Benjamin Dunn
SC Senate District 20

July 24, 2018

Re: Personhood Legislation Position Statement

     This letter is in response to your request for my position on personhood legislation. I pledge to defend all preborn lives, without exception, by granting my full support to personhood legislation if I am elected to the South Carolina Senate. By “full support” I mean co-sponsoring personhood legislation, voting in favor of personhood at every opportunity (including procedural votes such as recall motions, special order motions, tabling motions, cloture votes, and committee votes), and using all positional powers to move personhood forward without delay.

Thank you,

/s/

Benjamin Dunn
