The Constitutional Laws Subcommittee (chaired by Rep. Greg Delleney) of the SC House Judiciary Committee (chaired by Rep. Jim Harrison) conducted the first public hearing in three years (since March 2005) on the Right to Life Act of SC (H.3284/H.3697), over seven weeks ago, on February 14, 2008:
"Right to Life Act of SC "Personhood" Bill - Public Hearing, February 14, 2008
Public Hearing Statement in support of Right to Life Act of SC - Columbia, SC - Feb. 14, 2008
Now it is unclear whether or not Rep. Delleney will hold any further public hearings in the 2008 SC Legislative year (which ends June 5) on the Right to Life Act of SC, to pass the bill out of his Constitutional Laws Subcommittee, as he has already done once before, the last time he held a public hearing for the bill, three years ago, on March 31, 2005:
'Take Action to Pass the RTL Act of SC' - April 1, 2005
The bill also previously passed Rep. Harrison's full Judiciary Committee, on April 5, 2005:
'Take Action to Pass the RTL Act of SC' - April 7, 2005
Please contact Rep. Greg Delleney (R-Chester) and Rep. Jim Harrison (R-Columbia) and urge them to pass the Right to Life Act of SC out of their respective committees immediately. You can contact them by phone, letter, e-mail, office visit, or come to the SC State House on Tuesdays (12 noon), Wednesdays (10 AM), or Thursdays (10 AM), to lobby them directly, outside the SC House Chamber (Second Floor Lobby of State House).

According to the text of the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision itself, all that is necessary to "collapse" the abortion argument, is to establish fetal "personhood" without any exceptions. For 10 years, since February 1998, the Right to Life Act of SC has been an active bill in the SC House, and if passed into law, would recognize the God-given personhood of human beings at fertilization, without exceptions. This bill would end "legalized" abortion in South Carolina.
With Republican majorities in the SC House, the SC Senate, a Republican Governor (Mark Sanford), and a Republican Lt. Governor (President of the SC Senate) Andre Bauer, it is clear that the reason for the failure to pass the Right to Life Act of SC, and bring an end to the pre-meditated murder of 7,000 children per year in South Carolina, is because the REPUBLICANS in the South Carolina Legislature have chosen not to do so.
Fetal 'Personhood' denied by Republican-majority SC Legislature in 2007 (2008 ?)
According to the language of Roe, if a Legislature will declare the 'fetus' is legally a 'person ' at fertilization, without 'exceptions,' Abortion is over ! Neither the Republican-majority SC House, nor the Republican majority SC Senate, even held Judiciary Subcommittee public hearings on the Right to Life Act of SC (H.3284 / S.313) during the entire January 2007 through June 2007 SC Legislative session, finally adjourning June 29.
The Right to Life Act of SC, in statutorily vesting legal "personhood" at fertilization for ALL human beings, satisifies the Roe formula published 35 years ago. The issue of legal "Personhood" for ALL human beings, without exception, is a key to unlocking the 35 year old Roe v. Wade abortion enigma.

"Give an unborn baby personhood..."
George Mason, Virginia delegate to the Constitutional Convention, 1787:
"Every master of slaves is born a petty tyrant. They bring the judgment of heaven upon a country. As nations cannot be rewarded or punished in the next world, they must be in this. By an inevitable chain of causes and effects, Providence punishes nation sins, by national calamites."
America lost over 600,000 American lives in the War Between Americans (1861-1865) as a result of God's divine judgment on the national sin of America's institutionalized chattel slavery system
Just as God is already bringing incrementally greater divine judgment (e.g., 9-11, War in Iraq, the ongoing Foreign Invasion by 12-20 Million Illegal Aliens, a Collapsing Economy, etc.) upon America for our federal, state, and local government-protected, institutionalized system of child-murder in our 750 plus abortion centers and hospitals and doctors offices today.
AMERICA - A NATION UNDER DIVINE JUDGMENT.
Psalm 33:12; Proverb 14:34; Psalm 9:17; 2 Kings 24:1-4; Jeremiah 19:3-5; Psalm 106:37-42
Foreign invasion (12-20 Million Illegal Aliens) and War (Iraq) are divine consequences upon a nation, any nation, for the shedding of innocent blood (e.g., 2 Kings 24:1-4)...
"If My people [Christians], which are called by My Name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My Face, and turn from their wicked ways [sins of commission and omission]; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land [America, or any nation]."
