The South Carolina Senate has taken a bold step to protect the lives of unborn children by passing a bill that would ban all abortions, except in cases of rape, incest or threats to the mother’s life.
The bill would ban some 97% of the 5,700 abortions performed in the state each year. The measure passed the state Senate by a vote of 28-10 and will require a second vote of approval before moving to the state House for consideration.
Obviously, the law has no chance at standing given the framework of the much-maligned SCOTUS decision known as Roe v. Wade. However, lawmakers hope the law will trigger a chain reaction that leads to a direct challenge to the 1972 decision that launched an almost half-century-long culture war.
“It’s designed to give the court an opportunity to revisit Roe v. Wade,” said state Senate Majority Leader Shane Massey.
It is likely that at least one SCOTUS justice would have to leave before pro-lifers could ever hope for an overturning of Roe v. Wade. Even if they were to do so, President Trump would still have to appoint a judge with the fortitude to pass the gauntlet of Senate hearings.
Ardent pro-lifers maintain that while South Carolina’s ban is a strong step forward, it does not go far enough. Here’s LifeSite’s guide on why pro-lifers should seek to ban all abortions: “The Ultimate Guide Why Abortion is Wrong, and How to Argue In Favor of Life.”
