New Ohio ‘Personhood’ Bill Would Recognize ‘Personhood’ and [Therefore] Constitutional Rights of All Unborn Human Beings From Conception [Fertilization]

Published by:

New Ohio ‘Personhood’ Bill
Would Recognize
‘Personhood’ and [ Therefore ] Constitutional Rights
of All
Unborn Human Beings From Conception [ Fertilization ]

What are the two main substantive differences between
the new Ohio ‘Personhood’ Bill HB 704,
and SC Personhood Bills H5401 and S1335 ?

 

1. No potentially Scripturally violative (Ex. 20:13, Matt. 19:18), or medically unnecessary “life of the mother” exclusion in H5401 and S1335.

2. H5401 and S1335 explicitly, solely, and exclusively amend SC Homicide Law [ SC Code of Laws, Title 16, Chapter 3 ].
H5401 and S1335 are not unconstitutionally vague, but amend specific portion of the SC Code of Laws.
H5401 and S1335 do not affect other areas of law, but are limited to Title 16, Chapter 3.

“COLUMBUS, Ohio — The state would recognize the personhood” and constitutional rights of all unborn human individuals from the moment of conception” under a bill introduced Monday by some of the most conservative members of the Ohio House.” [ emphasis added ]

“The bill contains just two sentences: “The state of Ohio shall recognize the personhood, and protect the constitutional rights, of all unborn human individuals from the moment of conception. Nothing in this section shall be interpreted in any manner that would endanger the life of a mother.” [ emphasis added ]

Columbia, SC

FINALLY, 54 Days AFTER Overturn of Roe v Wade June 24, SC Senate schedules first post-Dobbs “Abortion” Legislation Committee Meeting August 17; Will full SC Senate Pass a Bill With NO “Exceptions” ?
_____________________________________________________________

SC Senate Medical Affairs Committee is scheduled to hold Meeting/Hearing on August 17.

SC Senate Medical Affairs Committee ( 11 R, 6 D )
https://www.scstatehouse.gov/CommitteeInfo/senatemedical.php
_____________________________________________________________

At least FOUR “Republican” [sic] Senators are already identified on the public record
as supporting allowing the murder of certain innocent babies based upon the crimes of their fathers:

Senator Tom Davis (Beaufort) / ( Member, SC Senate Medical Affairs Committee )

Senator Shane Massey (Edgefield)

Senator Sandy Senn (Charleston) / ( Member, SC Senate Medical Affairs Committee )

Senator Katrina Shealy (Lexington)
____________________________

Evidence:

1) Tom Davis:

SC Senate Journal, Jan 26, 2021
www.scstatehouse.gov/sess124_2021-2022/sj21/20210126.htm#p12

Senator Davis co-sponsored an Amendment (1R011.KMM.ASM) with Senator Shane Massey adding rape and incest exceptions to the Heartbeat Bill S1. It was approved by a quick voice vote which avoided Senators’ accountability. This should have been a Roll Call vote, however more conservative Senators failed to react in time to request that.


2) Shane Massey:

AP News
‘Rape and incest exceptions quietly added to SC [ Heartbeat ] bill’
January 26, 2021
https://apnews.com/article/bills-south-carolina-3f453465fe1b5a31ce26c2bab03555d7

“In his 90-second speech proposing the exceptions, Senate Majority Leader Shane Massey also suggested requiring doctors to report any rape or incest cases to law enforcement. The Republican from Edgefield folded his notes, ended the remarks without any flourish and asked that his amendment be approved. Senate President Harvey Peeler didn’t pause, asking for senators to vote “aye” or “nay” out loud and then ruling the amendment passed.”

“After fighting off the exceptions in committee meetings twice before, conservatives seemed
surprised by the quick move. [ Senator Richard ] Cash later said he missed the vote and asked
to have it recorded that he opposed the exceptions.”

 

3) Sandy Senn:

SC Senate Session Archived Video, Jan 28, 2021
https://www.scstatehouse.gov/video/archives.php?key=10741&part=1
Begin Video time 24:50

Senator Senn not only supports exceptions, but supports child-murder by “abortion” all the way through the 1st trimester. She voted against the weak, unjust, incremental Heartbeat Bill S1 on both Second (1/27/2021) and Third (1/28/2021) Readings not because it was weak and unjust, but because for her it was too “pro-life” [sic], and not pro-“abortion” enough. The Charleston Planned Parenthood child-extermination murder center ( 1312 Ashley River Road, Charleston, SC 29407 ) is located in Senator Senn’s Senate District #41. Consider the fact that if Senator Senn had her wicked way, and “abortions” were to continue to be permitted all the way through the 1st trimester, that would basically mean present business-as-usual for her constituent Planned Parenthood.  Who would like to investigate the Campaign Disclosure Reports (including Contributors) of Senator Sandy Senn on the SC Ethics Commission website ?


4) Katrina Shealy:

SC Senate Session Archived Video, Jan 28, 2021
https://www.scstatehouse.gov/video/archives.php?key=10741&part=1
Begin Video time 44:15

Senator Shealy claimed, “As a woman”, she supports allowing rape, incest, and handicapped babies to be murdered. Shealy said, “I am a woman, and I am a pro-life [sic] conservative [sic], but I was a woman first, and I will always be a woman first.”

ALL Four of these SC Senators should be publicly called to Repentance by Christians in their respective Counties.

Are Davis, Massey, Senn and Shealy foolish enough to believe their ideas about killing innocent people supercede God’s commands ?

South Carolina had 49+ years to get new** legislation banning “abortion” on the books; PERSONHOOD legislation was first filed 24+ years ago in 1998 and has been on file every year since, including now in 2022 [ H5401, S1335 ].

‘History of Personhood Legislation in South Carolina ( 1998 – 2021 )’
http://christiansforpersonhood.com/index.php/2021/11/10/history-of-personhood-legislation-in-south-carolina-1998-2021

** Prior to 1970, South Carolina had laws banning almost all “abortions”, and providing criminal penalties for the abortionist and for the woman soliciting an “abortion” [ SC Code of Laws, Title 16. Crimes and Offenses.***, Chapter 3, Offenses Against the Person.***, Sections 16-82, 16-83, 16-84, 16-85, 16-86 ]. For killing of “pre-quickening” babies (approx. 1st trimester), there were no exceptions to criminal punishment [ Section 16-83 ]. For killing of “post-quickening” babies (approx. 2nd and 3rd trimester), there was an exception*** for preserving the mother’s life or the life of the child [ Section 16-82 ]. Punishment of the woman for soliciting an
“abortion” [ Section 16-84 ] also had an exception*** for preserving the mother’s life or the life of the child.

*** NOTE: This is the same portion of the current SC Code of Laws which would be amended upon passage into law of H5401 or S1335, The Personhood Act of South Carolina, i.e., Title 16. Crimes and Offenses., Chapter 3, Offenses Against the Person., by adding Section 16-3-100 [ for H5401; different Section numbering for S1335 ] under Article 1, Homicide. There is no need to create whole new laws against murder to end/abolish child-murder by “abortion” in South Carolina. Section 16-3-10 already defines “Murder” as the killing of any person with malice aforethought, either express or implied. [ Emphasis added ] All that is necessary is to define “Person” in Article 1. Homicide, Chapter 3., Title 16., of the SC Code of Laws, to include all natural persons, i.e., all human beings, beginning at fertilization, with no exceptions.
( Black’s Law Dictionary (2009): Person = “A Human Being – Also Termed Natural Person. )
( SECTION 16-3-50. Manslaughter.; SECTION 16-3-60. Involuntary manslaughter; “criminal negligence” defined. )
 
*** It should be noted however, that it is not medically necessary to intentionally kill the unborn child to save the life of the mother [ See DublinDeclaration.com, with over 1,000 medical field signatories; and as posted here. See also quotes from Dr. C. Everett Koop, pediatric surgeon, former United States Surgeon General (1982-1989) as posted here. ].
____________________________________________

In 2021, the SC Legislature took just 37 days to pass the incremental, “abortion” regulation Heartbeat Bill S1, from introduction in the Senate on 1/12/21 to when Bill S1 was passed by the SC House on 2/18/21, and signed into law by SC Governor McMaster on the same day. It had been reported out of Senate Committee in just 13 days, on 1/25/21, and then passed by the full Senate on 1/28/21, albeit with exceptions for rape, incest, false so-called life/serious health of mother, and for killing handicapped babies; overall a despicable, unethical, unjust, unbiblical Bill.

‘SC Fetal Heartbeat Protection From Abortion [ sic ] Act’, Bill S1
www.scstatehouse.gov/sess124_2021-2022/bills/1.htm

The “Republican” [ sic ] Leadership chose to pass the Heartbeat Bill, and failed to even give the House or Senate Personhood Bills a public hearing in 2021, or so far in 2022.

After passing the SC Senate on 1/28/21, the Heartbeat Bill S1, with all its exceptions [ Note: The entire Heartbeat Bill itself is one Big Exception ! ], went to the SC House. The Bill S1 was reported out of the House Judiciary Committee on 2/10/21. On February 12, 2021, a Letter (below) from SC Citizens for “Life” [sic], addressed to the now former House Speaker, former Representative Jay Lucas, and apparently distributed to House Members, basically threatened SC Representatives with being scored as not voting “pro-life” if they tried to amend the Senate-passed bill with all its additional exceptions. This meant if any Representative dared to vote to remove any of the exceptions from S1, then incrementalists SCCL would not score that as a “pro-life” vote.

SCCL along with other promoters of incremental legislation to regulate child-murder by “abortion” have PERPETUATED “abortion” in SC, as the fact should now be clearly seen, in that now 37 Days AFTER the June 24 Dobbs ruling/Opinion overturning Roe, South Carolina is STILL killing babies, instead of having passed PERSONHOOD over the last 24+ years to END/ABOLISH “abortion” in South Carolina.

 

God said to Moses:

“So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye are; for blood it defileth the land; and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein,
but by the blood of him that shed it.”

Numbers 35:33, KJV

____________________________________________________

Supposedly “pro-life” bills/laws which permit use of the abortifacient drug methotrexate
to “treat” ectopic pregnancies are pieces of legislation with a serious, unacceptable flaw.

Intentional killing of a pre-birth human being, wherever that human being is located, whether in the uterus, a fallopian tube, or elsewhere (not all ectopic pregnancies are located in the fallopian tube) is unethical, unjust, and unbiblical.

So then use of the abortifacient drug methotrexate to kill the tubal ectopic zygote/embryo is a methotrexate “abortion”, and is therefore unethical, unjust, and unbiblical.
