South Carolina governor signs bill banning abortion of fetus after heartbeat is detected

So grateful for the work of SC Gov. Henry McMaster and state lawmakers to save lives by passing the Fetal Heartbeat Bill in their state this week. This bill bans abortions after a heartbeat is detected and allows for exceptions in cases of rape, incest, or endangerment of the mother’s life. I thought it was appalling that the majority of the Deep State in the House walked out in opposition with one calling it a “vote about pretend life.” I hope their eyes can be opened to the reality of abortion.
Before signing the bill, Gov. McMaster poignantly said, “If there’s not a right to life, then what rights is there. What rights exists, if not the elementary, fundamental, profound right to life.” He’s completely right. But Planned Parenthood has already filed a lawsuit to try to block the bill and, even with the votes, there will be a legal battle. South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson said, “My office will vigorously defend this law in court because there is nothing more important than protecting life.”
Join me in praying for all those who are working diligently to save the lives of tens of thousands of babies and for a court victory that will protect the unborn. May God bless each one who continues to stand bold and strong for life in a culture of death.
