In a stunning report, South Carolina could be the latest state to pass a so-called “heartbeat bill” banning abortions once a heartbeat of a baby Is detected.
“The state Senate voted 30-13 Wednesday to pass the new ban, which is expected to become law,” reports Fox News.
“Life is the most precious right we have,” said Larry Grooms, a state senator who passionately sponsored the legislation. “Government’s primary duty is to protect the fundamental right to life. Without life, no other rights really matter.”
Governor Henry McMaster said “We’re closer than we’ve ever been to passing into law the most comprehensive pro-life legislation our state has ever seen. It’s off to the House of Representatives now, where we have great leaders who I know will fight for life.”
We will keep pushing until the Fetal Heartbeat Bill reaches my desk and I will immediately sign it into law!
