Unjust Heartbeat Law (S474)
Oral Arguments
Tuesday, June 27, 2023

“This [SC State Supreme] Court will review a circuit court order granting an injunction against enforcement of the 2023 Fetal Heartbeat and Protection from Abortion Act.”

When SC Supreme Court in Session

‘Re: Orwellian, Unjust, Pro-“Abortion”, Pro-Fornication, Pro-“Abortion”-Funding S474 Heartbeat Bill’
Christians for Personhood

2023-2024 Bill S474:
“Abortion – Fetal Heartbeat”

The Heartbeat Law (S474) is NOT a “pro-life” bill. Aside from the obvious huge “exception” of allowing ALL children in the womb to continue to be exterminated prior to about six weeks gestation, there are also multiple “exceptions” to a ban after six weeks.

Human Life begins at conception/fertilization, NOT at heartbeat, NOT at implantation.

Furthermore, this bill:

1) In Orwellian fashion, S474 falsely re-defines the term “Contraceptive” to include a drug or device that prevents implantation of the human embryo in the uterus, which occurs 6 to 12 days after conception/fertilization. This is FALSE. Prevention of implantation is not the work of contraception, but is actually an early “abortion” at about one week gestation.
[ Section 44-41-610.(4) “Contraceptive” ]

2) S474 CODIFIES the FUNDING of “abortion” in the State “Health” Insurance Plan in the cases of the “exceptions”. S474 is an “ABORTION” FUNDING bill.

3) S474 requires the State “Health” Insurance Plan to cover “contraceptives” [ which includes abortifacients according to the Orwellian re-definition of the term ] for the DEPENDENTS [ e.g., young adults ] of employees. S474 is a PRO-FORNICATION bill.

4) S474 requires all private, group, and HMO health insurance policies in the State of SC to cover “contraceptives” [ which by the Orwellian re-definition includes abortifacients ]. (There is a religious exemption.) So while S474 will likely DECREASE the number of surgical/RU486 “abortions”, S474 will also likely INCREASE the number of early abortifacient “birth control” [ Margaret Sanger’s term ] “abortions.”

So, all in the name of “saving babies”, the incremental “abortion” regulation Heartbeat Law (S474) is also:

1) Orwellian;

2) Unjust;

3) Pro-“Abortion”;

4) Pro-Fornication; and

5)  Pro-“Abortion”-Funding

Christian, do the “ends” justify the “means” ? No, that is jesuitical, not Biblical thinking.


Paul the apostle warned those who would do evil that “good” may come, writing in Scripture their “damnation is just”.
(See Romans 3:8, KJV)


The incremental “regulation” of “abortion” is by definition the PERPETUATION of “abortion”. And following the false leadership of those who advocate incrementalism instead of ABOLITION is leading us to destruction.
(See Isaiah 3:12; Isaiah 9:16, KJV)


William Lloyd Garrison
19th Century American Slavery Abolitionist

“… Has not the experience of two centuries shown that gradualism in theory is perpetuity in practice ?”


Likewise, …

Has not the experience of over 50 years shown that incrementalism in theory is the PERPETUATION of child-murder by “abortion” in practice ?




God says,

“Thou shalt not kill (murder).”

Exodus 20:13, KJV


American constitutional liberty and freedom will not survive unless Americans become a more virtuous people, NOT a less virtuous people.


“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

John Adams

First Vice President of the U.S.

Second President of the U.S.


Those who advocate and insist on the “legalization” [sic] of child-murder in the womb in any measure, undermine the morals and virtue, and ultimately therefore the liberty of our State and Nation.

June 24, 2023 is the one year anniversary of the Dobbs decision overturning Roe v Wade.

However South Carolina is still killing massive numbers of babies by surgical/RU486 “abortion”, still committing mass-genocide (an estimated 8,000+ children slaughtered inside their mothers’ wombs in SC since Dobbs), primarily at SC’s three child-extermination centers in Greenville, Columbia, and Charleston.

A smaller number of children are also killed at some of SC’s “hospitals”, including the “abortion” facility (facilities?) at SC State Government’s taxpayer-subsidized (over $100 Million State taxpayer dollars budgeted for FY 2023-2024) “Medical” University of SC (MUSC), which kills more children in the womb than any other “hospital” in the State ( 51 children in the womb reported killed at MUSC in 2021 – ).

MUSC also trains OB/GYN residents how to kill babies by “abortion”. In other words, MUSC trains abortionists. This sin and crime against humanity is perpetrated through the:

Ryan Residency Training Program

College of Medicine


The MUSC Board of Trustees has 14 seats elected by the “Republican”-majority SC Legislature, as well as one seat appointed by the “Republican” SC Governor, who also has one ex officio seat.

Published by:

SC House Ad Hoc Committee’s Fake, Wicked, Unbiblical, Unjust “Pro-Life” [sic] Bill: In Practice, Affirms Some “Abortion” IS Healthcare [sic]

Do not be deceived by the fine-sounding name: “South Carolina Human Life Protection Act.”

Describes “Permitted Abortion”; and Does NOT Protect Sanctity of Human Life at Conception: So, the Ad Hoc Committee Recommendation does NOT Protect ALL Preborn Human Beings, and Protects NO Preborn Human Beings Beginning at Conception !

The SC House Ad Hoc Committee Recommendation for H5399 is NOT a Pro-Life Bill !

THE BIG LIE. Despite several rightly-stated, principled, Legislative Findings in SECTION 2., (which shows the authors know what the Bill should say), they are Unenforceable because they do not revise actual Sections of the SC Code of Laws. They are a Smokescreen; betrayed by the egregiously compromised, unbiblical, and unjust actual Statutory Revisions [SECTION 3.] to Chapter 41, Title 44 of the SC Code of Laws

‘SC House Ad Hoc Committee Fails to Establish Justice in Recommended Language for “Abortion” Legislation; Adopted July 19, 2022’

Video Archive: SC House Ad Hoc Committee (“Abortion” Ban Legislation) – July 19, 2022
July 24, 2022

The Ad Hoc Committee Recommended Language for H5399 adopted July 19, 2022 by the Ad Hoc Committee on a 9 [ 8R, 1D ] to 3 [ 3D ] Roll Call vote allows for the “Abortion” of certain children in the womb. However “Abortion” is Child-Murder, and it is ALWAYS Murder.

The explicit language of the SC House Ad Hoc Committee Recommendation for H5399 allows for [ medically unnecessary – see ] “permitted abortion” in the circumstance described in Section 44-41-830. when the life/serious health of the mother is at risk. Although priority is given to delivering and saving the life of the unborn child in this context of the life/serious health of the mother; nevertheless, the Ad Hoc Committee Recommended Language still also allows for “permitted abortion”.

The Ad Hoc Committee Recommended Language allows the [ medically unnecessary – see ] intentional killing of unborn children in certain cases involving the life/serious health of the mother, IAW circumstances described in Section 44-41-830. However, it is never necessary to intentionally kill the baby to save the mother’s life. If necessary, premature delivery is not an “abortion”.

See the statement by Dr. C. Everett Koop, pediatric surgeon, former United States Surgeon General, here and here.

Pro-“abortion” advocates have taken up the perverse messaging: “Abortion is Healthcare.” However, isn’t the SC House Ad Hoc Committee erroneously and unnecessarily saying the same thing in the context of the life/serious health of the mother, by allowing for “permitted abortion” ?

Isn’t the SC House Ad Hoc Committee saying that in the circumstance described in Section 44-41-830., that “Abortion” IS Healthcare [sic] ???

However “Abortion” IS NOT Healthcare. “Abortion” IS Murder.

So the SC House Ad Hoc Committee Recommendation for H5399 allows for what is termed “permitted abortion” in Section 44-41-830.(B), (erroneously) supposedly for the life/serious health of the mother. However, if “abortion” is murder, is there ever such a thing as “permitted murder” ?

No. “Abortion” is murder. There is no such thing under God as “permitted murder”.  Exodus 20:13; Matthew 19:18, KJV

The right-thinking Christian understands the term is impossible, there is no such thing as “permitted murder” under God, it is oxymoronic.

God has already spoken:
“Thou shalt not kill (murder).”

Exodus 20:13, KJV

How many people must someone murder to be a murderer ?

Answer: ONE.
(e.g., Genesis 4:10, KJV)

Even from a medical standpoint, “abortion – the purposeful destruction of the unborn child – is not medically necessary to save the life of a woman.” Quoted from the 2012 Dublin Declaration on Maternal Healthcare.

See with over 1,000 medical field signatories.

The Lord Jesus Christ, God the Son, says, “Thou shalt do no murder.” Matthew 19:18, KJV

Apparently the Ad Hoc Committee chose to follow National Right to Life and their General Counsel James Bopp instead of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Bible, or to receive the counsel of the 1,000+ medical signatories of the Dublin Declaration on Maternal Healthcare.

National Right to Life/General Counsel James Bopp, et al., Post-Roe “Model” [sic] “Abortion” Law

So, the Ad Hoc Committee Recommendation does NOT protect ALL Preborn Human Beings.

Neither does this Ad Hoc Committee Recommended Language protect the Sanctity of Human Life beginning at conception, but only at the time of “clinically diagnosable pregnancy”. [Section 44-41-810.(1)]

So, the Ad Hoc Committee Recommendation protects NO Preborn Human Beings beginning at conception !

And while in Section 44-41-810.(7), the Ad Hoc Committee Recommended Language suitably refers to a Pre-birth Human Being as either “‘Unborn human being’ or ‘unborn child’ or ‘preborn child’ or ‘preborn human being’ or ‘fetus'”, NOTICE THE ONE THING THE PREBORN ARE NOT REFERRED TO AS IS A PERSON“; EVEN THOUGH PREBORN CHILDREN WERE REFERRED TO AS PERSONS IN THE UNENFORCEABLE LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS in SECTION 2. !!!

Without recognition of the Creator God-given, inherent, unalienable natural personhood of pre-birth human beings, they have no “due process” or “equal protection of the laws” guarantees of their right to life, under the 5th and 14th Amendments of the United States Constitution, or Article I, Section 3. of the South Carolina Constitution.  The

So, the Ad Hoc Committee Recommendation provides NO Preborn Human Beings with “due process” or “equal protection of the laws”as “Persons”.

And Section 44-41-810.(7) even uses the Creator and Creation-denying term “species homo sapiens“, which is compatible with Darwinian Evolution, to refer to a Pre-birth Human Being as “an individual organism of the species homo sapiens“.

The Bible warns those who follow false leadership that it leads to destruction (Isaiah 3:12, 9:16, KJV). In this present matter, because our SC Legislative leaders are they themselves (once again) following unrighteous leadership, we all who are under their authority as citizens in South Carolina will suffer as well, as we have been, for years (Sword/violence, Pestilence/COVID), and now the approaching threat of food shortage/Famine). Read some of the many verses in which the Bible reveals how God judges peoples and nations with the Sword, Pestilence, and Famine. We are living it in South Carolina.
[ Jeremiah 24:10, 27:8, 32:24,36, 34:17, 38:2, 42:17,22, 44:13; Ezekiel 5:12, 7:15, 12:16, 14:12-23, KJV ]

The wicked, unbiblical, unjust, and even blasphemous Ad Hoc Committee Recommendation for H5399 is an unrighteous, iniquitous decree. The Bible says “Woe unto them” that decree such a thing. Isaiah 10:1, KJV.

Just as the Serpent (Devil) tempted Eve in the Garden with “Yea, hath God said,…” (Genesis 3:1, KJV), to doubt and disobey God’s Word, so National Right to “Life”, the SC House Ad Hoc Committee, and SC Citizens for “Life” do likewise with their commendation of this unrighteous legislation.

At a minimum, no faithful, obedient, professing Christian who truly loves and fears God (Proverbs 1:7, 8:13, 9:19, KJV) should support it, neither those who are regular citizens, nor those holding office in the SC Legislature.

‘South Carolina Panel Votes to Ban Abortions, Protect  Lives of Unborn Babies’
by Holly Gatling [ exec. dir. of SC Citizens for “Life”, the SC chapter of National Right to “Life” ]
Jul 19, 2022

[ Excerpts, comments, emphasis added ]

‘The South Carolina House Judiciary Committee’s Ad Hoc Committee appointed to study potentially outlawing most abortions in the Palmetto State, made its 9-3 recommendation today to protect the lives of babies waiting to be born while strongly protecting the life of the mother.’ [sic]

‘Committee Chairman, pro-life [?] Representative John McCravy, R-Greenwood, said the goal of the recommendation is “ending the practice of using abortion as birth control.” ** He said, “South Carolina took a big step forward in protecting all [sic] life – not just people preferred by society. Everyone’s life is valuable today.” ‘

** FALSE. The rightful goal of legislation is to Establish Justice, IAW the Oath of Office of SC Legislators, which concludes with the words “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of this State and of the United States, So Help me God.” The Preamble of the U.S. Constitution includes among the purposes for which the Constitution was ordained and established, that of to “establish Justice”. The McCravy Ad Hoc Committee Recommended Language FAILED to do that.

‘Lisa Van Riper, President of South Carolina Citizens for Life,
the oldest and largest single-issue pro-life [sic] organization in the state, praised the committee for its vote.I commend the Ad Hoc Committeefor its overwhelming vote to recommend legislation that will protect the life of the unborn child [sic] while protecting the life of the mother throughout all nine months [sic] of pregnancy.” ‘
[ highlighting, emphasis, and comments added ]

‘ “For almost 50 years, the unborn’s life has gone with little legal recognition or protection,” *** Mrs. Van Riper said. “For almost five decades, women have been left vulnerable to pressure from boyfriends, parents and employers. For too long, society has been asked to address its social and economic problems by discarding the unborn child. Today, the Ad Hoc Committee gives us a better way forward for the unborn, the mother, and society.” ‘

*** Personhood legislation has been on file in the SC Legislature every year since 1998. In those 24 years, “abortion” incremental regulationists SC Citizens for “Life”, has never publicly supported this Personhood legislation to END “abortion” in South Carolina, and in fact SCCL incremental child-murder regulation bills have repeatedly been a hindrance and obstruction to the SC Legislature’s interest and attention to principled Personhood legislation. To paraphrase Oswald Chambers from “My Utmost for His Highest”, “Good” is the ENEMY of God’s Best.  SCCL incremental child-murder regulation bills have repeatedly been the Enemy of principled Personhood legislation. When the Supreme Court Dobbs ruling/Opinion was announced on June 24, 2022, South Carolina was NOT among the 18 States which already had either trigger law, pre-Roe, or despite-Roe legislation on their books.  As of this posting on August 15, 2022, South Carolina has therefore continued to kill unborn babies over these last 52 days. This is a fruit of incrementalism as espoused for the last 25+ years by SCCL and those who have aligned themselves similarly, including Palmetto Family (Council), the public policy “leaders” of the SC Baptist Convention, and the Roman Catholic Diocese of South Carolina (Charleston).

( article continued…

‘A proposal by Representative Magnuson to impose criminal penalties on women who procure drugs for the purpose of an abortion was tabled. Representative McCravy said the issue could be discussed later when the House Judiciary sets its next meeting, possibly in mid-August, to advance the bill. The Ad Hoc Committee language does not subject women to prosecution, he said; the language “seeks to err on the side of mercy and understanding.” ‘ ****

**** Yet more unbiblical, pious-sounding, error.  Without justice, there can be no mercy. Under God, and according to Scripture, the purpose and duty of the civil minister is to establish justice ( Romans 13:1-4; 1 Peter 2:14; Amos 5:15; Proverbs 21:3, KJV ).  As explained above, this is consistent with the Oath of Office taken by SC Legislators. Yes, “mercy rejoiceth against judgment” (James 2:13, KJV), but without justice and judgment first, there can be no mercy. There must be justice FIRST before mercy can be given. This is properly left to the courts and juries, not legislators. What about mercy upon the unborn children murdered because a woman knows she will not be punished ?

“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.


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;

’13 states have passed so-called ‘trigger laws,’
bans designed to go into effect if Roe v. Wade is overturned’
May 3, 2022


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

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.”


“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 !


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.


Two new stronger Personhood Bills to END / ABOLISH Child-Murder by “Abortion”
in South Carolina were filed May 12 [ H5401 (trigger law), S1335 ].

We have known that fact since the Second Oral Argument in the Roe v Wade case, Oct 11, 1972, over three months before actual issuance of the evil, immoral, unconstitutional Roe v Wade decision and Opinion Jan 22, 1973.

A human being is a natural person; that truth is inherent and unalienable. The Creator God-given right to life exists at fertilization for every human being, it is not granted by the State; however it is to be 1) recognized by the State, and 2) protected by the State, as God’s servant in civil ministry (Romans 13:1-4, 1 Peter 2:14, KJV).

This is the monumental fraud of the Roe v Wade decision and Opinion, the brazen denial of the natural personhood of human beings in the womb.

However the fraud is easily corrected, if there is the understanding, will, and courage to do so: Establish Personhood at fertilization, inarguably, without exception, by codification in law. There are no exceptions to personhood. Each and every human being is a natural person, by definition.

Black’s Law Dictionary (2009):
Person = “A Human Being”

“person. … 1. A human being.
– Also termed natural person.”

And yet, in 48+ years, no State Legislature has ever fully passed Personhood legislation, though some States have passed it in one chamber. Neither has the United States Congress ever done so !

“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.
