However, for South Carolina, the news is tragically, shamefully, not as good.

South Carolina is NOT one of the 13 States with trigger laws already in place
( AR, ID, KY, LA, MO, MS, ND, OK, SD, TN, TX, UT, WY ).
https://www.cnn.com/2022/05/03/us/state-abortion-trigger-laws-roe-v-wade-overturned/index.html

South Carolina is NOT one of the 9 States with pre-Roe “abortion” bans still in place
( AL, AR, AZ, MI, MS, OK, TX, WI, WV ).
https://www.cnn.com/2022/05/03/us/state-abortion-trigger-laws-roe-v-wade-overturned/index.html

South Carolina is NOT one of the 3 States which passed recent “abortion” bans in spite of Roe 
( AL (2019), AR (2021), OK (2022) )
https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/new-law-bans-nearly-all-abortions-arkansas-n1260328

So, 18 different States already have some type of immediate or quick “abortion” ban legislation, in some measure, already in place upon the overthrow of Roe:
AL, AR, AZ, ID, KY, LA, MI, MO, MS, ND, OK, SD, TN, TX, UT, WI, WV, WY.

Whether or not ALL “abortions” in these States are ENDED/ABOLISHED, or not, depends upon whether or not the specific legislation in each State has truly established Biblical Justice. Legislation in any State that allows “exceptions” has not.

So, for now, South Carolina is still able to continue killing babies, even though Roe v. Wade is now overruled !

 

Shame on the SC House and SC Senate !

Shame on the SC Governor !

 

Establish Biblical Justice NOW !!!

Pass Personhood NOW !!!

America’s Founding: “… the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God” – Establish Justice, Pass Personhood Now !!!

Published by:

Revised June 26, 2022

Expressed in The Declaration of Independence
July 4, 1776

America’s Founding: “… the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God”

 

In Congress, July 4, 1776

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people
to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another,
and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. —

How many Americans, including Christians, understand today, without the Christian Protestant Reformation, there would not have been the “America” which was Declared Independent in 1776; and whose Constitution was Signed in 1787, and Ratified in 1788, and Implemented in 1789; and in which the Individual Rights of American citizens are protected from the federal government by the Bill of Rights which was Ratified in 1791 !!!???

Blackstone’s Commentaries: “… the law of nature and the law of revelation”

In the decade before the first shots of the American Revolution (War for American Independence) were fired on the green (common) at Lexington (Mass.) on April 19, 1775, English jurist William Blackstone published his four books of Commentaries on the Laws of England (1765-1769).  “The Commentaries were long regarded as the leading work on the development of English law and played a role in the development of the American legal system.”  “The Commentaries are often quoted as the definitive pre-Revolutionary source of common law by United States courts.”  “For decades, a study of the Commentaries was required reading for all first year law students.” Blackstone’s Commentaries were used before, and for approximately 100 years after, the American Revolution (1776-1783) to train lawyers in the United States, including at the University of South Carolina School of Law during part of the Reconstruction Era (1867-1877) after the USC Law School opened in 1867.

The University of South Carolina Law School curriculum included Blackstone’s Commentaries at times during period 1867-1877:



                                     USC Law School History: Reconstruction Era (1867-1877)  [excerpts, emphasis added]

“The University of South Carolina School of Law was established as one of ten academic schools when South Carolina College was reorganized as the University of South Carolina in 1865 and 1866.  The Board of Trustees elected twenty-seven year old South Carolina attorney Alexander Cheves Haskell as the first professor of law and the law school opened on October 7, 1867. Professor Haskell developed his own system of leading the junior class through a course in Blackstone’s Commentaries and the senior class through a course on Stephens’ Pleading. …” [ continued ]

                                    USC Law School History: Reconstruction Era (1867-1877)  [excerpts, emphasis added]  [continued]

“From the opening of the law school in October 1867 until the death of Professor Melton on December 4, 1875, classes were held in the University Library, now the South Caroliniana Library, and DeSaussure College. … The Board of Trustees chose Franklin J. Moses, Sr., the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of South Carolina, as Melton’s successor.  Under Moses the curriculum of the law school was modified to place a heavy emphasis on Blackstone’s Commentaries and Kent’s Lectures.”


William Blackstone
Commentaries on the Laws of England (1765-1769)

[ excerpts, emphasis added ]

INTRODUCTION
Sect. 2:  Of the Nature of Laws in General

“The doctrines thus delivered we call the revealed or divine law, and they are to be found only in the holy scriptures.”

“Yet undoubtedly the revealed law is of infinitely more authenticity than that moral system, which is framed by ethical writers, and denominated the natural law. Because one is the law of nature, expressly declared so to be by God himself; the other is only what, by the assistance of human reason, we imagine to be that law. If we could be as certain of the latter as we are of the former, both would have an equal authority; but, till then, they can never be put in any competition together.”

“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.”

http://christianlifeandliberty.net/Blackstones-Commentaries-1863-Introduction-Section-II-Of-the-Nature-of-Laws-in-General-pp-title-25-28-29.pdf
____________________________________________

In other words, Blackstone’s Commentaries, which were used before, and for 100 years after, the American Revolution (1776-1783) to train lawyers in the United States, said “all human laws” are to be inviolate of the Laws of Nature and the Word of God, the Bible !!!

Commentaries on the Laws of England (1765-1769)
[ excerpts, emphasis added ]

INTRODUCTION
Sect. 2:  Of the Nature of Laws in General

“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.

Subj: A PLEA FOR JUSTICE: JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED; ESTABLISH JUSTICE NOW !

                                                                                               

We may possibly be less than one month away from an historic ruling by the United States Supreme Court, one that is 49 plus years overdue, whose delay has cost the lives of over 63 million children in the United States. Please do not become responsible before God for the life of even one more child being taken in South Carolina if in fact SCOTUS soon overthrows the evil, unconstitutional Roe Opinion.

In a May 4, 2022 letter to then-House Speaker Lucas from several members of the SC House of Representatives, they stated (copy enclosed):

 

“The killing of even one child with the needless countenance of state law would be a grave assault to human rights and human dignity.”

and;

“No more children should have to die without justice.”

 

What will your legacy be ? That South Carolina’s top leaders had in place the legislative means to protect human life, as do already, in various measures, 13 other States via “trigger laws”; and 9 States with pre-Roe “abortion” ban legislation still on the books; and 3 States with “abortion” ban legislation passed since 2019 in spite of Roe ? Or, will the legacy of South Carolina in this historic sea change in America be that Roe was overturned, but in the State of South Carolina, the shedding of innocent blood continued, for even one second longer than necessary ? [ Note: Laws recognizing ”Personhood” at fertilization for ALL humans fully establish justice. Other “bans” may still shut down child-murder centers, as in Oklahoma. ]

 

’13 states have passed so-called ‘trigger laws,’ bans designed to go into effect if Roe v. Wade is overturned’
May 3, 2022
https://www.cnn.com/2022/05/03/us/state-abortion-trigger-laws-roe-v-wade-overturned/index.html

 

13 States with Trigger Laws already in place:

AR, ID, KY, LA, MO, MS, ND, OK, SD, TN, TX, UT, WY

 

9 States with pre-Roe “Abortion” bans still in place:

AL, AR, AZ, MI, MS, OK, TX, WI, WV

 

3 States which passed recent “Abortion” bans in spite of Roe

AL (2019), AR (2021), OK (2022) [ https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/new-law-bans-nearly-all-abortions-arkansas-n1260328 ]

 

So there are 18 different States which have some type of immediate “abortion” ban legislation already in place upon the overthrow of Roe: AL, AR, AZ, ID, KY, LA, MI, MO, MS, ND, OK, SD, TN, TX, UT, WI, WV, WY.

 

Men, please do not wait to “respond” after Dobbs. Revise Sine Die Resolution S1325 and take up Personhood legislation beginning Day One June 15 of the upcoming Special Session, to END/ABOLISH ALL “abortion”. Pass Personhood Now !

 

God’s Requirement for Murder is Justice ( Exodus 20:13, Micah 6:8, Amos 5:15, KJV ).

May 4, 2022 Letter to then-Speaker of the SC House of Representatives Rep. Jay Lucas
from several Members of the SC House of Representatives, including these words:

“The killing of even one child with the needless countenance of state law would be a grave assault to human rights and human dignity.”

and;

“No more children should have to die without justice.”

SC LEGISLATURE FINISHES 2022 REGULAR SESSION MAY 12; ADOPTED “SINE DIE” RESOLUTION TO COME BACK INTO SPECIAL SESSION JUNE 15-17 AND JUNE 28-30 FOR OTHER MATTERS, BUT NOT TO TAKE UP “ABORTION” LEGISLATION UNTIL AFTER JUNE 30 !

SC LEGISLATURE FINISHES 2022 REGULAR SESSION MAY 12;

ADOPTED “SINE DIE” RESOLUTION TO COME BACK INTO SPECIAL SESSION
JUNE 15-17 AND JUNE 28-30 FOR OTHER MATTERS, BUT NOT TO TAKE UP
“ABORTION” LEGISLATION UNTIL AFTER JUNE 30 !
_____________________________________________

“REPUBLICANS” are a 65% majority in both the SC House and SC Senate; however by voting to delay debate on banning “abortion” until AFTER the Supreme Court Dobbs Case ruling o/a June 30 when Roe may possibly be overturned, means the SC Senate and SC House have effectively voted to possibly PERPETUATE CHILD-MURDER in South Carolina.

Shame.

If even one unborn child is destroyed in South Carolina AFTER any Dobbs case ruling that overturns Roe, their INNOCENT BLOOD will be on the hands of SC Legislators who:

1) Failed to join one of 13 other States with “trigger laws” already passed,
which go into effect if Roe is overturned;

CNN
May 3, 2022
https://www.cnn.com/2022/05/03/us/state-abortion-trigger-laws-roe-v-wade-overturned/index.html

AND,

2) Failed to include in the Sine Die Resolution passed May 10 (SC Senate) and May 11 (SC House) that “abortion” legislation could be taken up in June 15-17 and June 28-30 special sessions, when trigger legislation could be passed, but postponed consideration of “abortion” legislation until after June 30, 2022. The US Supreme Court ruling on the Mississippi Dobbs case is expected sometime during the period June 27 – 30.

S1325: Sine Die Resolution
https://www.scstatehouse.gov/sess124_2021-2022/bills/1325.htm
_________________________________________________

Regarding the Sine Die Resolution, a May 4 letter to Speaker of the House Jay Lucas,
signed by several House members stated in part:

“The killing of even one child with the needless countenance of state law would be a grave assault to human rights and human dignity.”

and,

“No more children should have to die without justice.”
_________________________________________________

With the impending Supreme Court ruling in the Dobbs case, the SC Legislature, demonstrating a lack of fear of God, and a lack of love for their unborn neighbors, passed a Sine Die Resolution which declines to take up “abortion” legislation until some unspecified time July 1 – November 13.

In other words, even if as of o/a June 30, there is no Federal US Supreme Court ruling such as Roe or Casey to provide any political cover for not completely banning “abortion”, the State of South Carolina will continue to allow children in the womb to be torn to pieces until some unspecified time July 1 – November 13 !

Shame.

UNLESS, the South Carolina Legislature takes up the Sine Die Resolution itself, S1325, as the Resolution language allows, and revises the Sine Die Resolution to allow for consideration of “abortion” legislation in the June 15-17 and June 28-30 special sessions.  This the “Republican” 65% near super-majority SC House and the “Republican” 65% near super-majority SC Senate can do by a 2/3 vote in each chamber, the same voting margin that was needed to pass S1325 to begin with, which the SC Senate did on May 10, and the SC House did on May 11.
