Request sent to SC Senators before end of regular session June 2:

[ Note: S.111, the Right to Life Act of South Carolina, has only six co-sponsors, out of 46 SC State Senators (26 Republicans and 20 Democrats). The six pro-life Senators in the SC Senate are Senators Mike Fair, David Thomas, Larry Grooms, Danny Verdin, Kevin Bryant, and Wes Hayes. ]

Sent by memo from the Second Floor State House lobby to the Senate chamber:



"Please sign on as a co-sponsor of S.111, the RTL Act of SC before sine die on June 2d."

DATE: 6/1/05
TO: Senator __________ (Senator Jim Ritchie (R) - Spartanburg)
(Senator Randy Scott (R) - Summerville)
(Senator Luke Rankin (R) - Myrtle Beach)
(Senator Joel Lourie (D) - Columbia)
(Senator Glenn McConnell (R) - Charleston)

FROM: Steve Lefemine, Columbia Christians for Life

MESSAGE: Will God Bless or Curse S.C. over the next several months?

1) Three other states also have principled "no exceptions" ban-abortion bills in their state legislatures. You men have the opportunity before you of making history for good by passing the RTL Act of SC, & helping SC lead the nation in ending this 32+ year national tragedy + disgrace of "legalized" abortion.
2) Or, as the 2005 hurricane season begins today, & and The State reported $ 110 million in damage to SC in 2004, how will God deal with us in 2005 ?


Attachments to the lobbying memo above included:

- Four states having active no 'exceptions' bills during 2005 legislative session [ NORTH DAKOTA, GEORGIA, OHIO, and SOUTH CAROLINA ]

with these Scriptures hand-written in the margin:

Psalm 147: 8,16-18 "... He causeth His wind to blow, and the waters flow."
Jeremiah 51: 14-16 "The LORD of hosts... He hath made the earth by His power, ... When He uttereth His voice, there is a multitude (tumult) of waters in the heavens;... He maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures."
1 Samuel 12: 16-19
