The six-man ( FOUR REPUBLICANS, two Democrats ) House-Senate Budget Conference Committee *** agreed to throw out the SC House-passed amendment (March 17-18) banning state-funding of abortions in the State Health Insurance Plan for rape, incest, and unrestricted life of the mother "abortions", in the FY 2011 State Budget compromise [ FY 2011 State Appropriations (Budget) Bill - H 4657 ].
The Republican-majority SC Senate had earlier (April 28) refused to pass the same amendment.
*** Senators: John Land (D-Clarendon), Hugh Leatherman (R-Florence), and Mike Fair (R-Greenville)
House Representatives: Kenny Bingham (R-Lexington), Bill Clyburn (D-Aiken), and Dan Cooper (R-Anderson).
"Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people." - Proverb 14:34, KJB
"The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations [ and STATES ] that forget God." - Psalm 9:17, KJB
With a Republican-majority SC Senate, a Republican-majority SC House, and a Republican Governor, the Christian pro-lifers of South Carolina will still, continue to be forced in the 2010-2011 budget year to fund surgical and chemical "abortions".
The Republican-majority SC Legislature continues to fund the shedding of innocent blood in our State, polluting the land (Numbers 35:33).
God is Judging South Carolina for over 300,000+ (surgical alone) "ABORTIONS" (Psalm 106:37-44).
