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 30, 2022 / Corrected/Revised June 7, 2022

 

 

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;

bans designed to go into effect if Roe v. Wade 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.

ROE v. WADE (1973)
No. 70-18

Argued: December 13, 1971

Reargued: October 11, 1972

Decided: January 22, 1973
https://caselaw.findlaw.com/us-supreme-court/410/113.html

Appellee (Pro-Life): Henry Wade, District Attorney of Dallas County, State of Texas

Appellant (Pro-“Abortion”): Jane Roe (Norma McCorvey*)

[ * Norma McCorvey later became a born-again Christian and a leading voice for the sanctity of life of the unborn, and against “abortion” ]

 

ROE v. WADE Opinion:

Part IX

A. The appellee [ Texas ] and certain amici argue that the fetus is a “person” within the language and meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment.  In support of this, they outline at length and in detail the well-known facts of fetal development. If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case, of course, collapses, [410 U.S. 113, 157]  for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the Amendment. The appellant [ Jane Roe ] conceded as much on reargument. [FN 51] On the other hand, the appellee conceded on reargument [FN 52] that no case could be cited that holds that a fetus is a person within the meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment.  [ emphasis added; identification of parties to the case in brackets added ]

History: Based upon the recommendation of constitutional attorney, scholar, author, and former Dean of the College of Law and Government in Regent University (Virginia Beach, VA) Herb Titus, J.D., the original design of personhood legislation in South Carolina, as first introduced in February 1998 in both the SC House and the SC Senate, was based upon the South Carolina State Constitution for its authority, not the United States Constitution. This legal strategy and structure, based upon the South Carolina State Constitution, has been the case for each and all of the 23 consecutive years of Personhood legislation that has been active in the South Carolina Legislature, 1998 through 2021:

http://christianlifeandliberty.net/2021-04-11-History-of-Personhood-Legislation-in-South-Carolina-1998-2020.pdf


This important point was emphasized in the written testimony of Herb Titus at the very first public hearing for Personhood legislation in the SC Legislature on April 25, 2001. Herb Titus also testified live by telephone before the SC House Judiciary Constitutional Laws Subcommitttee, consisting of Representatives (Ch.) Chip Campsen (R), Jim Harrison (R), Jay Lucas (R), Creighton Coleman (D), and Fletcher Smith (D). After several members of the public also testified, the Subcommittee then failed to report H.3252 to the full SC House Judiciary Committee by a vote of 4 to 1 against H.3252.  All three “Republicans” and Creighton Coleman voted against H.3252; only Democrat Fletcher Smith voted favorably. the first Legislator in South Carolina to vote in support of Personhood legislation.

Written Statement of Herb Titus on H.3252, “Right to Life Act of South Carolina”
given to South Carolina House Judiciary Constitutional Laws Subcommittee on April 25, 2001

H.3252 – “Right to Life Act of South Carolina” (SC Personhood Bill in 2001-2002 Session of SC General Assembly)
(Herb Titus testified before the Constitutional Laws Subcommittee by telephone, in addition to submitting this written statement.)

Attorney, former College of Law and Government Dean, Herb Titus (Excerpts from Written Statement, April 25, 2001):

“I am appearing this day before the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives for the State of South Carolina to testify in favor of the constitutionality of H.3252, the “Right to Life Act of South Carolina.”  [ 2001-2002 SC Personhood Bill ]

“H.3252, if enacted, would enable the South Carolina legislature to overcome the barriers to preventing full protection of the lives of preborn human beings. In Roe v. Wade, the United States Supreme Court based its holding that a woman had a right to an abortion upon its ruling that an unborn child was only “potential life,” not a fully-human life, and therefore, was not a “person” within the meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment due process clause. In contrast to this narrow interpretation of the meaning of “person” in the federal constitution, H.3252 recognizes that Article I, Section 3 of the [ South Carolina ] state constitution contains a more expansive definition, vesting the due process guarantee of life, liberty and property, and the guarantee of equal protection of the laws, to every human person “at fertilization.”

“If the right to life and to equal protection vest at fertilization, then a woman’s constitutional right [sic] to terminate her pregnancy, that would otherwise be                        [ erroneously ] recognized by the United States Supreme Court under the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, disappears.”

“At the heart of the equal protection of the laws is the prohibition against denial of rights to a class of human beings, refusing to recognize them as legal persons before the law. … for South Carolina to afford the benefit of its homicide laws to one class of human beings, to the exclusion of another class, would be a denial of equal protection of the laws. Yet, that is precisely the result when the state does not extend the benefit of its homicide laws to human beings not yet delivered from the womb of their mothers, as contrasted to those who are so delivered.”

“H.3252 rectifies this denial of equal protection, by recognizing that the constitutional protections afforded persons in Article I, Section 3 [ of the South Carolina State Constitution ] must include human beings from the moment of fertilization. Otherwise, the State Constitution fails to fulfill its primary purpose, to preserve and perpetuate the liberties that God has given to all human beings, regardless of their status.”

“In conclusion, H.3252 is constitutional, not in conflict with Roe v. Wade, because it is based upon an independent and adequate state constitutional ground which grants a more expansive right to life than the one afforded by the federal constitution as [ erroneously ] interpreted by the United States Supreme Court.”

Beginning with the 2013-2014 SC Legislative Session, the SC Personhood Bills in the SC House and SC Senate were revised to include, in addition to various legislative findings in the Preamble, the addition of an explicit reference to the Tenth Amendment of the United States Constitution as follows:

2013-2014 SC Personhood Bill, S.457
Section 1-1-340.
“This article is enacted pursuant to the power reserved to this State under the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.”

2013-2014 SC Personhood Bill, H.3584
Section 1-1-340.
“This article is enacted pursuant to the power reserved to this State under the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.”

On March 13, 2014 and on April 14, 2014, public hearings on SC Personhood Bill, S.457 were conducted before a Subcommittee of the SC Senate Judiciary Committee, consisting of Senators (Ch.) Chip Campsen (R), Greg Gregory (R), Greg Hembree (G), Brad Hutto (D), and Karl Allen (D). At the end of the two Subcommittee hearings, Chairman Senator Chip Campsen’s Subcommittee failed to even vote on the bill !

During the March 13, 2014 Hearing, COL (Dr.) John Eidsmoe, Senior Counsel for the Foundation of Moral Law [ morallaw.org ]
( associated with twice-former Alabama State Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore ) testified telephonically to the Subcommittee in support of S.457.

March 13, 2014

COL (Dr.) John Eidsmoe, Senior Counsel, Foundation for Moral Law
Professional Experience, Professional License, Education

Attorney, Senior Counsel COL (Dr.) John Eidsmoe (Excerpts from Written Statement):

“As Senior Counsel and Resident Scholar for the Foundation for Moral Law, and as one who has taught Constitutional Law I & II at various law schools for over twenty years, I have examined South Carolina S.457, believe it to be constitutional, and urge its passage.”

“Neither the Declaration nor the Constitution specifically define when personhood begins.  The Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973),  did not address when human life begins, but it did say the term “person” within the Fourteenth Amendment refers to persons already born.  I do not believe this precludes the State of South Carolina from defining personhood as beginning at conception, …”

“I understand that some South Carolina legislators are concerned about challenging Roe v. Wade because the U.S. Constitution, Article VI Sec. 2, declares the U.S. Constitution to be the “supreme Law of the Land.” True, but this means not just part of the Constitution but all of the Constitution. And because Article V declares that amendments when ratified “shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution,” the Tenth Amendment is part of the “supreme Law of the Land.” The Tenth Amendment provides that “The powers not delegated to the United [States] by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”  Wherever the Constitution delegates powers to the federal government, that is the supreme law of the land.  But wherever the Constitution reserves powers to the states, that is equally the supreme law of the landI would argue that the Constitution nowhere delegates to the federal government the power to determine when personhood begins.  Therefore, the power to determine when personhood begins is by the Tenth Amendment reserved to the states, and that is the supreme law of the land.”
[ emphasis added ]

“S.457 is well-drafted and a very good place to make this defense.  I hope and pray that South Carolina will lead the way by enacting S. 457, and if it is challenged in court the Foundation for Moral Law will be pleased to assist South Carolina in the defense of the law and the defense of the unborn child.”
