South Carolina Citizens for Life (SCCL) is the SC state chapter of National Right to Life (NRL). SCCL is based in Columbia, SC.
As National Right to Life and their chapters have done in other states as well,the SC chapter has thus far refused to support, and even opposed, the passage of the Right to Life Act of SC, SC's principled "no exceptions" Abortion Ban bill.

National Right To Life: The Judas Of The Preborn
Anti-abortion constitutional amendment petition falls short in Michigan National Right to Life does it again - this time in Michigan...
In fact, the executive director of SCCL, reportedly 2-3 years ago, actually tried to convince the SC House sponsor not to pursue passage of the bill. This in spite of the fact that the RTL Act of SC has been an active bill, and re-introduced into the SC Legislature, every year since 1998. The House version of the bill (H.3213) passed the SC House of Representatives inApril 2005, albeit with a "fatal flaw" rape exception amendment. The bill was then killed by neglect by the Republican-majority SC Senate in 2006.
The SC Legislature came back into session on January 9, 2007, and so far, for the first time since 1998, the RTL Act of SC has thus far not been re-filed.
On Saturday, Jan. 13, SCCL conducted its annual march and rally to the SC State House, attended by hundreds of participants, a large majority of whom appeared to be Roman Catholic. Hundreds of copies of the text of the flyer below (many accompanied by Gospel of salvation tracts) were distributed to the march and rally participants through the efforts of Columbia Christians for Life.

Is SC Citizens for Life really "Pro-Life" ?
Why is South Carolina Citizens for Life not supporting the Right to Life Act of SC (H.3213/S.111 in 2005/2006 session), South Carolina's principled "no-exceptions" Abortion Ban bill !?
Ask SCCL (803-252-5433) why their executive director, Miss Holly Gatling, reportedly 2-3 years ago, tried to convince the sponsor of the Right to Life Act of SC, Rep. Ralph Davenport, not to pursue passage of the bill ? Davenport did anyway, and the bill passed the SC House of Representatives in April 2005, albeit with a "fatal flaw" rape exception amendment. The bill was killed by the Republican-majority SC Senate in 2006.
