"Republican Leadership in SC Senate Blocking Personhood for Pre-born Bill - S.450"
Columbia [ SC State House ] - On Thursday (March 25) Senator Jake Knotts (R - W.Columbia / Lexington) said "No" to Johnny Gardner's (dir., Voice of the Unborn) face-to-face request for a public hearing for S.450 ! Gardner asked Republican Senator Knotts if Knotts would consider letting us have a hearing on Senator Bright's bill (the SC Personhood Bill) ? Senator Knotts said "No".
Time is running out in the 2009-2010 legislative session to pass S.450, the SC Personhood Bill, to END "abortion". We have perhaps 2-3 weeks to get the bill out of REPUBLICAN Senator Jake Knotts' subcommittee. Even though we have 23 Senate co-sponsors ( 1/2 the entire SC Senate ), and even though three out of six members on Jake Knotts' subcommittee itself are co-sponsors, Knotts is refusing to even grant a public hearing !!!
Please call Senator Jake Knotts now at (803) 755-6253 (H) and (803) 212-6350 (O) and ask him WHY will he not even grant a public hearing for S.450 when 50% of the entire SC Senate is co-sponsoring the bill, and 50% of his own Judiciary Subcommittee is co-sponsoring the bill ? [ Knotts was appointed as chairman of this Judiciary subcommittee by Senator Glenn McConnell (R-Charleston), Judiciary Committee chairman, who is NOT a co-sponsor of S.450. Republican Senator Glenn McConnell is also President Pro Tempore of the SC Senate. ]
Ask REPUBLICAN Senator Jake Knotts to reconsider his refusal to grant a public hearing, to stop trying to block this pro-life / anti-abortion legislation designed to recognize pre-birth human beings as "persons", and to schedule a hearing for S.450 as soon as possible !!! Additional information is available on the home page of http://www.christianlifeandliberty.net/
Also call Republican Judiciary Committee chairman and SC Senate Pro Tempore Glenn McConnell at (843) 571-3921 (H) and (803) 212-6610 (O) and (843) 747-7554 (Bus.), and ask him why his appointed subcommittee chairman, Senator Jake Knotts, is refusing to even grant a hearing for S.450 ? Request Sen. McConnell to ask Sen. Knotts to schedule a public hearing for S.450.
God is judging South Carolina for over 300,000 [ surgical ] "abortions" - Read Psalm 106:37-44, KJB. When we are concerned enough about the right to life of the innocent pre-born to cry out for JUSTICE for THEM [ NOT just "regulation" of their murder ], THEN God will deliver US from the wicked rulers and their encroaching statist tyranny which has already begun to oppress us. ESTABLISH JUSTICE for the pre-born - PASS S.450 - the SC Personhood Bill.
