Dr. C. Everett Koop, pediatric surgeon, former United States Surgeon General (1982-1989): “Protection of the life of the mother as an excuse for an abortion is a smokescreen. In my 36 years in pediatric surgery I have never known of one instance where the child had to be aborted to save the mother’s life.”

South Carolina taxpayer dollars also fund “birth control”, some of which can cause chemical “abortions”. This definitely includes such funding in Section 33 – DHHS – Medicaid.

SC State Budget line items are sufficiently vague so that it would require an FOIA request to actually find out how much is budgeted to pay for baby-killing so-called “birth control” [child-prevention].  Just another way our SC State Government officials evade accountability to the taxpayers and citizens of South Carolina.

Chemically abortifacient “birth control” *** is reliably estimated to cause multiple times more the number of “abortions” than do surgical and RU-486 “abortions”.

3. Section 33 – DHHS

Medicaid funding of mass-murderers PLANNED PARENTHOOD

Two of SC’s three remaining “abortion” mills (down from 12 in 1988) are Planned Parenthood murder mills.

Recall that the SC Governor’s Executive Budget has two competing Provisos in Section 33 (Proviso 33.25 and Proviso 33.28):

SC Governor’s Executive FY 2022-2023
State Budget Bill
Provisos – Part 1B
https://admin.sc.gov/sites/default/files/budget/FY%2022-23%20Proviso%20Text_FINAL.pdf

Proviso 33.25 (PAGE 360) which does nothing now; key words “once the federal injunction is lifted”. The federal injunction has to do with preventing the Governor from removing Planned Parenthood from the SC State Medicaid program as an authorized provider. The federal court issued an injunction against that.

Proviso 33.28 (PAGE 360) which actually defunds Planned Parenthood, now, instructing SC DHHS not to accept ANY federal funds for “family planning”, which also includes Planned Parenthood funds. Proviso 33.28 is a real attempt to defund Planned Parenthood, now, by instructing SC DHHS not to accept ANY federal funds for “family planning”, which would of course include any such funds for Planned Parenthood.

However, fake “pro-life” Senate Finance Committee version of State Budget only has Proviso 33.25, with make-believe defunding language.

Proviso 33.25 is an example of “Republican” Leadership fake “pro-life” theater. Proviso 33.28 would get something done beginning July 1, 2022 when this new State Budget (H.5150) goes into effect, but Proviso 33.28 is not even included in the Senate Finance Committee version of the State Budget H.5150 !

The fake “pro-life” Senate Finance Committee version of the State Budget only has Proviso 33.25 (see graphic below), with the make-believe defunding language. “Republicans” especially in Leadership are good at “pro-life” theater.  Watch their deeds, not their fake words.  Funding of certain baby-killing and baby-killers continues year after year after year in the SC State Budget !

Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC)

The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) is a SC State Government institution. “The Medical College of South Carolina was established by Act of Legislature upon petition of the Medical Society of South Carolina, December 1823. The College was opened in the fall of 1824. The name was changed to “The Medical University of South Carolina” (MUSC) by [ SC Code of Laws ] Sec. 59-123-10.” [ Source: SC 2021 Legislative Manual ]

Title 59, Chapter 123 of the SC Code of Laws governs the existence and organization of MUSC, which operates South Carolina State Government’s Own “Abortion” Facility.  This includes the composition and election, the organization and powers, and designation as Medical University Hospital Authority” [ Section 59-123-60 ] of the Board of Trustees, which “is the final authority and the governing body of The Medical University of South Carolina, its colleges, outreach programs, and ancillary functions.”

SC Code of Laws
SECTION 59-123-40. Composition of board of trustees.
“The management and control of the university shall be vested in a board of trustees, to be composed as follows:
the Governor or his designee, ex officio, fourteen members to be elected by the General Assembly in joint assembly and one member to be appointed by the Governor. The Governor shall make the appointment based on merit regardless of race, color, creed, or gender and shall strive to assure that the membership of the board is representative of all citizens of the State of South Carolina.”

MUSC Board of Trustees
“The Board of Trustees is the final authority and the governing body of The Medical University of South Carolina, its colleges, outreach programs, and ancillary functions. The Board establishes the general policies of the University, defines educational programs, and approves annual budgets. The Board names the principal officers of the University, including the President and Vice Presidents. Meeting six (6) times a year, the comprised group includes physicians, dentists, an attorney, business executives, a CPA, a former state legislator, a former educator, and an engineer.”

Board of Trustees – 16 total members (4-year terms):
– 1 member representing the medical profession from each of the seven Congressional Districts, elected by the General Assembly
– 1 member representing the non-medical profession from each of the seven Congressional Districts, elected by the General Assembly
– 1 at-large member appointed by the SC Governor
– Ex officio member: the SC Governor or his designee
Source: South Carolina 2021 Legislative Manual, “The Medical University of South Carolina”, pp. 535-537

So, the Board of Trustees is the “final authority and the governing body of The Medical University of South Carolina”, and 14 out of 16 members are elected by the Near Super-Majority “Republican” SC General Assembly (House and Senate), and two members are chosen by the “Republican” Governor; and yet, the “Medical” University of South Carolina is South Carolina’s largest baby-killing “hospital”, having murdered 263 pre-birth children by “abortion” just in the years 2014 – 2020 !!!

Comments:

Is it not immeasurably grievous to consider that in supposedly “Red State”, “conservative”, “Republican” South Carolina, that our SC State Government operates its own taxpayer-subsidized mini-Auschwitz child-extermination facility ? While of course far less in numbers, what is the difference qualitatively between the fascistic “Republican” Government of South Carolina in 2022 and that of the Nazi Regime’s Third Reich in the 1940’s in its disregard for the Creator God-given, inherent, unalienable, right to life ? Where is the respect for the Sanctity of Human Life, as taught in the Bible ?

 

Beyond that, is it not unfathomably heart-wrenching to consider the magnitude of the reproach the existence of this State-sponsored, taxpayer-subsidized, child-extermination facility is to the Christian evangelical church in South Carolina, and therefore to the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Who is God the Son, the only Saviour, and only Mediator between God and men ?

 

God Himself said over 3,500 years ago, child-sacrifice is such an abomination to Him, such as “to defile My sanctuary, and to profane My holy name.”  Leviticus 20:3

 

The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, including her pastors, elders, and deacons, need to repent for allowing such an abomination as a SC State Government operated child-extermination center to exist in South Carolina.  2 Chronicles 7:14, Matthew 5:13-16, KJV

Re: MUSC Board of Trustees ( https://web.musc.edu/about/leadership/trustees )

Seven medical professional members of MUSC Board of Trustees representing Congressional Districts:

Note: The Fifth District medical profession representative on the MUSC Board of Trustees is Dr. G. Murrell Smith, Sr., M.D.

The present Chairman of the SC House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee (Budget Committee), is SC Representative G. Murrell Smith, Jr., Esq.

It has been reported current Speaker of the SC House of Representatives Jay Lucas (R-Darlington) will not be seeking re-election as a SC Representative in 2022, and that the most likely successor as Speaker of the House will be G. Murrell Smith, Jr. (R-Sumter).

So, G. Murrell Smith, Jr., the son of MUSC Board of Trustees member Dr. G. Murrell Smith, Sr., M.D., is the current Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, Chairman of the House Committee in charge of writing the State’s Annual Budget, and is currently the most likely candidate to succeed Rep. Jay Lucas as the Speaker of the SC House of Representatives.

Fake “Pro-Life” [sic] SC House defeated Budget Amendment #6 offered to Part 1B, Section 108, the Public Employee Benefit Authority (PEBA), to stop taxpayer dollars from being used to kill certain** preborn children through the SC State “Health” Insurance Plan.

So March 14, 2022, by a vote of 88 Y – 22 N (Division, not Roll Call), the Near Super-Majority “Republican” [sic] SC House effectively voted to continue FUNDING THE MURDER OF PREBORN CHILDREN CONCEIVED IN CASES OF RAPE OR INCEST with the South Carolina State “Health” Insurance Plan.

 

** Note: This Amendment #6 would have only banned the funding of “abortions” in cases of rape and incest. It would not have banned funding of “abortions” in the so-called cases of the life of the mother. However it is never necessary to “abort” (i.e., intentionally kill) the preborn child to save the life of the mother. Premature delivery is not an “abortion”. It is never justified to intentionally take the life of an innocent person. That is Murder. God says, “Thou shalt not kill (murder).” Exodus 20:13, KJV. The preborn child in the womb is judicially innocent. See additional information on “Exceptions” and specifically the so-called “life of the mother” case, at the end of this post below***.

2) South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster is an attorney, and the former U.S. Attorney for the District of South Carolina; and a two-term Attorney General for the State of South Carolina

** Planned Parenthood operates two of the three remaining “abortion” mills in South Carolina (down from 12 in 1988).

The Planned Parenthood “abortion” center in Columbia alone is reported to have exterminated over 55,000 pre-birth human beings from 1978 through 2020.

The “abortion” center in Charleston (1312 Ashley River Road), gave notice November 13, 2017 it was closing. That facility was purchased by Planned Parenthood, and began reporting the murder of preborn children under Planned Parenthood’s name in 2018. In 2018, 2019, and 2020, this Charleston Planned Parenthood child-murder center has reported killing a total of just over 4,000 pre-birth human beings.

So together, Planned Parenthood’s child-extermination centers in Charleston and in Columbia slaughtered over 59,000 babies through 2020. These are the Planned Parenthood child-extermination death camps which the 33 “Republican” Yea Votes above [ Ballentine through Wooten ] effectively voted March 14 to allow to receive Medicaid Federal “Family Planning” Funds, effectively fungible money which helps a recipient child-murder death camp to continue to operate.
