ABORTIFACIENTS

Resolution states:

– Deaths of 6,750,000 babies per year caused by intrauterine devices (IUD’s)
in the United States.

– Studies have found the Plan B pill acts as an abortifacient 80 – 92% of the time.

“REPUBLICAN” SUPER-MAJORITY SC HOUSE PASSES FALSELY-NAMED “HUMAN LIFE PROTECTION ACT” H3774 ON 2ND READING 83Y – 31N FEB 15; 3RD READING 77Y – 31N FEB 16

“REPUBLICAN” SUPER-MAJORITY SC HOUSE PASSES FALSELY-NAMED “HUMAN LIFE PROTECTION ACT” H3774 ON 2ND READING 83Y – 31N FEB 15; 3RD READING 77Y – 31N FEB 16

H3774 FAKE “HLPA” [SIC] WOULD BAN APPROX. 97%* OF SURGICAL AND RU486 “ABORTIONS”; WHILE INCREASING “ABORTIONS” BY ABORTIFACIENT BIRTH CONTROL DRUGS AND DEVICES

* Using State of Florida 2020 statistics

SURGICAL AND RU486 “ABORTIONS” COMPRISE ONLY AN ESTIMATED 10-20% OF THE TOTAL NUMBER OF PRENATAL HUMAN BEINGS EXTERMINATED BY “ABORTION”; THE OTHER ESTIMATED 80-90% ARE KILLED BY ABORTIFACIENT BIRTH CONTROL

SO THE H3774 FAKE “HLPA” [SIC] WOULD ACTUALLY BAN APPROX. 10-19% OF THE TOTAL NUMBER OF “ABORTIONS”, BECAUSE IT DOES NOT ESTABLISH LEGAL PERSONHOOD AT FERTILIZATION FOR ALL PRENATAL HUMAN BEINGS, AND THEREFORE DOES NOT PROVIDE EQUAL PROTECTION, AND THEREFORE DOES NOT ESTABLISH JUSTICE

http://christianlifeandliberty.net/2022-12-05-History-of-Personhood-Legislation-in-South-Carolina-1998-2022.pdf


2) H3774 [ SECTION 3., Section 44-41-810.] does NOT protect ANY human life from conception / fertilization. H3774 only protects from the point of “clinically diagnosable pregnancy” due to the detectable presence of hCG – which comes AFTER IMPLANTATION.

3) H3774 [ SECTION 3., Section 44-41-810.] uses the blasphemous term “species homo sapiens” compatible with the anti-Creator, anti-Creation Darwinian Evolutionary worldview to define an “Unborn child”. Human beings are created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27, KJV), and are NOT part of the Animal Kingdom, nor of the Primate Order, as this wicked, unbiblical terminology inherently implies !!!

4) H3774 [SECTION 4.] undermines YEARS** of Annual SC State Budget battles, and actually CODIFIES funding of selected* surgical/RU486 “abortions” in the SC State Health Insurance Plan !!!

* H3774 provides for FUNDING of “abortions” through the SC 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**** !!!  And more since then*****. [ Note: The so-called Hyde Amendment is NOT a Pro-Life Amendment – funding “abortion” in cases of so-called life of the mother, rape, and incest is NOT Pro-Life. ]

***

Re: SC Senate votes against stopping State-funding of certain “abortions”
through SC State Health Insurance Plan (PEBA)

__________________________________________________

5) H3774 [SECTION 6., Section 38-71-146.] MANDATES the expansion of the availability of birth control, including birth control which can cause chemical “abortions”, by REQUIRING “All individual and group health insurance and health maintenance organization policies in this State shall include coverage for” contraceptives/abortifacients. This is more Big Government socialism; not to mention, promotion by the South Carolina State Government of the shedding of innocent blood through birth control which is abortifacient.

6) H3774 [SECTION 6., Section 38-71-146.] FALSIFIES BIOLOGICAL AND MEDICAL SCIENCE, FALSELY CLAIMING: A contraceptive may prevent ovulation, fertilization, or implantation in the uterus.” However, implantation in the uterus occurs 6 to 10 days AFTER fertilization. So preventing implantation in the lining of the uterus of a living human being by a drug or device is NOT the work of birth control functioning as a contraceptive, but of birth control that is functioning as an abortifacient, i.e., to cause an early “abortion” at about one week of human life. This twisting, perversion, and falsification of the English language, of science, of biology, and of the truth, apparently embraced by the medical profession, is Orwellian, and has the effect of deceiving the public by calling abortifacient birth control drugs and devices by the FALSE label “contraceptive” instead of truthfully identifying their abortifacient characteristics.

THIS FURTHER EXPOSES THE FALSE CLAIM THAT H3774 PROTECTS HUMAN LIFE FROM CONCEPTION. IT ABSOLUTELY DOES NOT.

IMPLANTATION IN THE UTERUS OCCURS 6 TO 10 DAYS AFTER CONCEPTION / FERTILIZATION.

7) H3774 [SECTION 7.] promotes FORNICATION* among South Carolina youth by requiring the Public Employee Benefit Authority (PEBA) and the State Health Insurance Plan to cover contraceptives/abortifacients for dependents “under the same terms and conditions that the Plan provides contraceptive coverage for employees and spouses.” This is immoral and despicable. The Bible commands to “Flee fornication.” (1 Corinthians 6:18, KJV), and the Bible reveals “fornicators” shall not “inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9,10, KJV). For the South Carolina State Government to further promote fornication among the State’s youth by making birth control even more available and accessible to them as dependents, might not this for even more young people, hinder their inheriting the kingdom of God ?

* Note: In a recent calendar year (2017), 88% of the surgical/RU486 “abortions” in South Carolina were committed upon UNMARRIED females. (“Abortions” by Marital Status Occurring in SC in 2017 (SC DHEC) – Click Here). BIRTH CONTROL fuels FORNICATION, and FORNICATION fuels “ABORTION”.  (Have we forgotten the introduction of Margaret Sanger’s birth control pill in 1960 effectively launched the “Sexual Revolution” of the 1960’s, from which we are still suffering, and still experiencing today in 2023 !?)

8) H3774 [SECTION 4.] prohibits the use by Planned Parenthood of any state funds for “abortions” [ However, this also begs the question, does that mean Planned Parenthood can continue to receive state funds for purposes other than surgical/RU486 “abortions” ?].

9) H3774 [SECTION 10.] rightly FINALLY repeals Sec 44-41-20. “Legal Abortions.” in the SC Code which codifies the Roe v Wade framework. The Roe framework was placed in the SC Code by the SC Legislature in 1974, and has been preserved there by 25+ years of incremental “abortion” regulation legislation, including by the incremental “abortion” perpetuation Heartbeat Law [ SC Senate Bill S.1, See Section 44-41-710. ] which has been blocked by SC Supreme Court since its August 17, 2022 Order.

However, H3774 does NOT rightly repeal in its entirety, all of Chapter 41 – Abortions, Title 44 of the 1976 Code, as would have the Personhood Act of SC (2022 Session – H5401/S1335).

_____________________________________________
_____________________________________________

So, in conclusion, H3774 would ban approximately 97% of surgical and RU486 “abortions” in SC, and thus would likely shut down such “abortions” at the Planned Parenthood murder mills in Columbia and Charleston, and would likely stop nearly all such “abortions” at the Greenville murder mill.

However, surgical and RU486 “abortions” only account for an estimated 10-20% of the total number of “abortions”. The other estimated 80-90% is from birth control which can function abortifaciently, TO WHICH THIS UNRIGHTEOUS BILL H3774 IN ITS PRESENT FORM AS FILED ON JANUARY 24, 2023, AND AS PASSED BY THE SC HOUSE JUDICIARY CONSTITUTIONAL LAWS SUBCOMMITTEE ON JANUARY 26, 2023 (SC Legislature Archived Video), AND AS PASSED BY THE FULL SC HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES ON FEBRUARY 15 (2ND READING) AND ON FEBRUARY 16 (3RD READING), WOULD EXPAND AVAILABILITY AND ACCESSIBILITY, EVEN TO DEPENDENTS (YOUTH) THROUGH THE SC PEBA AND THROUGH THE STATE HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN !

National Review
November 4, 2016
https://www.nationalreview.com/2016/11/contraception-birth-control-abortion-abortifacients-ella-plan-b-iud-embryo-life/
Excerpts:

“Pro-abortion-rights activists employ a neat semantic trick to evade and ignore the scientific details of abortifacient drugs: redefining “pregnancy” to mean “the implantation of an embryo in the uterine lining.” Thus any drug that prevents implantation of an existing embryo prevents pregnancy rather than aborting an existing one. Semantics aside, the crucial, underlying question is whether these birth-control methods cause embryonic death.”

“As Donna Harrison has explained at NRO, an IUD’s manipulation of the hormone progesterone causes a woman’s body to reject any embryo that might be formed after ovulation, rather than wholly stopping ovulation from occurring. The copper material in some IUDs has been shown to be toxic to an embryo, leading to its death or, if it survives, abnormal development. Furthermore, an IUD’s manipulation of the uterine lining accounts for the fact that, among women who become pregnant while using an IUD, there is a high rate of ectopic pregnancy, in which the embryo implants somewhere outside the uterus.”

Rep. McCravy’s Bill still contains exceptions to a ban on “abortion” for so-called life/serious health of the mother (despite DublinDeclaration.com), rape/incest, and so-called fatal fetal “anomaly” [sic – euthanasia].

H3774 still codifies the FUNDING of “Abortions” in the cases of these exceptions in the State Health Insurance Plan. (SC Citizens for Life calls H3774pro-life legislation“, but how can that be true when H3774 actually FUNDS certain “abortions” !!!???)

H3774 continues to fail to protect ANY human life at conception, but instead, only at the point of a “clinically diagnosable pregnancy” – e.g., from a positive pregnancy test AFTER IMPLANTATION, because H3774 purports to “ban” a procedure (“abortion”) instead of
establishing a legal identity AT FERTILIZATION for the preborn through Personhood.

H3774 still protects the continued use of IUD and Plan B (MAP) abortifacient birth control.

H3774 still provides birth control to dependents (youth) with which to fornicate, through PEBA and the State Health Insurance Plan.

H3774 still forces private and group insurance and HMO policies in South Carolina to cover birth control, which assumedly includes abortifacient birth control.

H3774 still tries to redefine science and biology by falsely claiming a “contraceptive” may prevent implantation, when that is the definition of an abortifacient, not a contraceptive.
______________________________________________

Of interest:

Pro-“abortion” attorney Rep. Justin Bamberg (D) spoke more about the unborn as a “person” THAN DID ANY “PRO-LIFE” REPUBLICAN, including H3774 chief sponsor, Rep. McCravy.

Watch Judiciary Committee February 7, 2023 meeting video above, 1:25:15 to 1:29:00 (less than four minutes).

Rep. Bamberg quotes:

“No person shall…”

In the bill’s definitional section, “Person isn’t defined in the … bill.”

“What is a person under the Constitution in this State ?”

“But we don’t even define unborn child as a person in this state. Our Constitution doesn’t. And our law doesn’t. And this bill doesn’t. That would be a good starting point.”
_____________________________________________

Although Rep. Bamberg is a pro-abort, and he may just be trying to lure Republicans into a trap so he can then turn around and criticize them for being “extreme”, the point is, he is right. Are the unborn “people” ? Are they “persons” ? Why for the last 7 1/2 months since Dobbs have Republicans failed to advocate for passage of Personhood legislation ?

The official SC GOP Party Platform is a PERSONHOOD Platform ( https://sc.gop/assets/uploads/2022/09/SCGOP-Platform.pdf ), so why in Fall 2022 were the Republicans in the SC House and SC Senate not unified in supporting Personhood legislation such as H5401 and S1335 ? AND WHY IS REP. McCRAVY’s CURRENT BILL H3774 NOT A PERSONHOOD BILL !?

Bill Search by Bill Number
https://www.scstatehouse.gov/billsearch.php

Even in the recent SC Supreme Court Heartbeat Law Opinion, Justice John Few’s individual Opinion explicitly cites several Personhood Bills going back to 2015.

Christians for Personhood Note:

Personhood legislation was first filed in the SC Legislature in February 1998, almost 25 years ago, and has been on file every year since, through 2022. Personhood legislation passed the full SC House in 2005 (H3213), albeit flawed by still allowing use of an abortifacient drug in rape cases. Personhood legislation passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee in both 2016 (S719) and 2018 (S217) and was placed on the full Senate calendar, where each piece of legislation died.

‘S.C. Senate begins debate on six-week abortion ban; ban from conception advances to House floor’

(Christians for Personhood Note: the WIS-TV reporter is incorrect when stating the new House bill would ban “abortion” from conception. As Rep. McCravy rightly explained in his Judiciary Committee remarks on Tuesday, Feb 7, the bill H3774 protects human life from the point of a “clinically diagnosable pregnancy” (i.e., NOT at conception). The WIS-TV reporter is not correct. Unfortunately, Rep. McCravy did not further clarify this means the bill does not protect human life until AFTER IMPLANTATION (If Rep. McCravy did that, would WIS-TV perhaps start correctly reporting that fact ?).

The Bible commands to “Flee fornication.” (1 Corinthians 6:18, KJV), and the Bible reveals “fornicators” shall not “inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9,10, KJV). For the South Carolina State Government to further promote fornication among the State’s youth by making birth control even more available and accessible to them as dependents, might not this for even more young people, hinder their inheriting the kingdom of God ?

* Note: In a recent calendar year (2017), 88% of the surgical/RU486 “abortions” in South Carolina were committed upon UNMARRIED females. (“Abortions” by Marital Status Occurring in SC in 2017 (SC DHEC) – Click Here). BIRTH CONTROL fuels FORNICATION, and FORNICATION fuels “ABORTION”.  (Have we forgotten the introduction of Margaret Sanger’s  birth control pill in 1960 effectively launched the “Sexual Revolution” of the 1960’s, from which we are still suffering, and still experiencing today in 2023 !?)

7) H3774 [SECTION 4.] prohibits the use by Planned Parenthood of any state funds for “abortions” [ However, this also begs the question, does that mean Planned Parenthood can continue to receive state funds for purposes other than surgical/RU486 “abortions” ?].

8) H3774 [SECTION 10.] rightly FINALLY repeals Sec 44-41-20. “Legal Abortions.” in the SC Code which codifies the Roe v Wade framework. The Roe framework was placed in the SC Code by the SC Legislature in 1974, and has been preserved there by 25+ years of incremental “abortion” regulation legislation, including by the incremental “abortion” perpetuation Heartbeat Law [ SC Senate Bill S.1, See Section 44-41-710. ] which has been blocked by SC Supreme Court since August 17, 2022.

However, H3774 does NOT rightly repeal in its entirety, all of Chapter 41 – Abortions, Title 44 of the 1976 Code, as would have the Personhood Act of SC (2022 Session – H5401/S1335).

_______________________________________________________
_______________________________________________________

So, in conclusion, H3774 would ban approximately 97% of surgical and RU486 “abortions” in SC, and thus would likely shut down such “abortions” at the Planned Parenthood murder mills in Columbia and Charleston, and would likely stop nearly all such “abortions” at the Greenville murder mill.

However, surgical and RU486 “abortions” only account for an estimated 10-20% of the total number of “abortions”. The other estimated 80-90% is from birth control which can function abortifaciently, TO WHICH THIS UNRIGHTEOUS BILL H3774 IN ITS PRESENT FORM AS FILED ON JANUARY 24, 2023, AND AS PASSED BY THE SC HOUSE JUDICIARY CONSTITUTIONAL LAWS SUBCOMMITTEE ON JANUARY 26, 2023 (SC Legislature Archived Video), WOULD EXPAND AVAILABILITY AND ACCESSIBILITY, EVEN TO DEPENDENTS (YOUTH) THROUGH SC PEBA AND THROUGH THE STATE HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN !

SOUTH CAROLINA SUPREME COURT JUSTICE EXPLICITLY NAMES SEVERAL PERSONHOOD BILLS IN HIS HEARTBEAT LAW OPINION – JANUARY 5, 2023

SC Supreme Court Justice John Few’s Opinion documents the repeated failure of the
SC General Assembly over the course of years to pass Personhood legislation;
plus the continued existence today of the Roe framework in the SC Code of Laws,
which was added to the SC Code by the SC Legislature in 1974
______________________________________________
______________________________________________

Selected specific Personhood Bills named in Justice John Few’s Opinion:

S.129 (2015) [pp. 75, 76] “… would have added a new section to Title 1 of the Code – “Administration of the Government” – providing, “The right to life for each born and preborn human being vests at fertilization.” “

S.1335 (2022) [p. 76] “(proposed but not adopted legislation adding a new section to Title 16 – “Criminal Code” – providing, “The right to life for each born and preborn human being is inherent and unalienable beginning at fertilization”)…”

H.5401 (2022) [p. 76] “(proposed but not adopted legislation adding a new section to Title 16 – “Criminal Code” – providing, “The General Assembly finds that a human being is a person at fertilization”)…”

S.381 (2021) [p. 76]

H.3568 (2021) [p. 76]

H.3920 (2019) [p. 76]

S.217 (2017) [p. 76]

H.3530 (2017) [p. 76]

_______________________________________

Justice John Few (pp. 75, 76):

“For years, a minority of the General Assembly attempted to enact legislation banning abortion altogether. See, e.g., S.129, 121st Gen. Assemb., Reg. Sess. (S.C. 2015). Those “personhood bills” – based on what would have become a legislative finding that human life begins at conception [FN 53] – consistently failed to gain majority support. [FN 54]”  [emphasis added]

See also personhood/person references by Justice John Few on pp. 77, 80.

Justice John Few (p. 90):

“In 1974 – in response to Roe – the General Assembly enacted an expansive statutory right to abortion, making any abortion legal up to the end of the second trimester of pregnancy. Act No. 1215, 1974 S.C. Acts 2837, 2838-39. That statutory right to – or opportunity for – abortion is actually still the law. See § 44-41-20(a)-(b).”

Christians for Personhood:

Chapter 41 “Abortions” of Title 44 of SC Code of Laws should be repealed; child-murder by “abortion” should be ENDED, not incrementally “regulated” !
______________________________________________
______________________________________________

No Personhood Bill has ever been fully passed, in 24 straight years of these bills being filed in the SC Legislature, 1998 to 2022. The most progress achieved was passage of a Personhood bill by the full SC House in 2005, albeit with a fatal flaw rape exception
allowing use of an abortifacient drug [There are no exceptions to “personhood”, none. ]. In the SC Senate, Personhood legislation was passed by the Senate Judiciary Committee in both 2016 and 2018, and in each year, placed on the Senate Calendar where the bills subsequently died.
______________________________________________

This is the 24 year history of principled Personhood legislation, never fully passed by the SC Legislature, which has led now to the ongoing post-Dobbs slaughter of an estimated 3,000 unborn children in SC in the 198 Days since Roe was overturned

ESTABLISH JUSTICE NOW !

PASS PERSONHOOD NOW !

THE KEY TO ENDING CHILD-MURDER BY “ABORTION” IN SOUTH CAROLINA AND IN AMERICA IS TO CODIFY THE CREATOR GOD-GIVEN, INHERENT, UNALIENABLE, NATURAL PERSONHOOD OF ALL HUMAN BEINGS, AS LEGAL PERSONHOOD, IN LAW, AT FERTILIZATION, AND THAT WITHOUT EXCEPTION, BECAUSE …

GOD SAYS,

“THOU SHALT NOT KILL (MURDER).”
