SC "Personhood" Bills - Take Action to Advocate Bills' Progress

South Carolina's "Personhood" Bills - H.3526 and S.450 - are SC's pro-life / anti-abortion bills to END "legalized" child-murder-by-abortion by vesting legal "personhood" at fertilization, with no exceptions.

Go to:, links to bills on Home page; click on “RTL Act of SC” to pull up information on history and status of SC Personhood Bills (first introduced in SC House and Senate in 1998).

H.3526 was introduced Feb.12, 2009 and now has 52 sponsors in the SC House of Representatives

S.450 was introduced Feb. 18, 2009 and now has 11 sponsors in the SC Senate
(look on-line to see list of Senate sponsors of bill S.450 at

Each bill (H.3526 and S.450) states:
“The right to life for each born and preborn human being vests at fertilization.” and “The rights guaranteed by Article I, Section 3 of the Constitution of this State [SC], that no person shall be deprived of life without due process of law, nor shall any person be denied the equal protection of the laws, vest at fertilization for each born and preborn human person."


The 1973 US Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision instructed that if “personhood” for the “fetus” was established at fertilization, with no exceptions, then the legal argument for abortion “collapses” :

“If this suggestion of personhood is established, the [abortion] case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment.”

The SC "Personhood" Bills (H.3526 and S.450) are constitutional, and meet the express requirement set forth by the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade to establish personhood for the "fetus," thus guaranteeing the right to life of this pre-birth human being, and ending decriminalized abortion in SC. “Exceptions” to “Personhood” are unconstitutional.
