The Supreme Court in the state of South Carolina ruled to uphold a six-week ban on abortions Wednesday, which is a reversal of a previous decision. If you listen closely, you can hear the bloodthirsty progressives across the state sinking to their knees in utter despair as they watch the “right” to murder children in the womb slip through their fingertips. They are a ghoulish bunch, those pro-abortionists, aren’t they?
If a country is not willing to provide basic protection for the God-given right to life for the weakest members of their population, they lack the moral character to sustain liberty. And that’s a fact, Jack. Just look at the writings of the Founding Fathers, who all made it abundantly clear that freedom can only be kept by a people who are upright and righteous. Certainly murdering children is not something a righteous society allows.
“The court, which became a conservative majority due to Justice Kaye Hearn retiring at the age of 72 in February, ruled in January that a similar law passed in 2021 violated a woman’s right to privacy under the state constitution. State legislators passed a new six-week ban in May and were immediately sued by Planned Parenthood South Atlantic, but this time the court determined in a 4-1 decision that South Carolina has a ‘compelling interest in protecting the lives of unborn children,’ according to the ruling,” the Daily Caller reported.
“That finding is indisputable and one we must respect,” the court stated in their ruling. “The legislature has further determined, after vigorous debate and compromise, that its interest in protecting the unborn becomes actionable upon the detection of a fetal heartbeat via ultrasound by qualified medical personnel. It would be a rogue imposition of will by the judiciary for us to say that the legislature’s determination is unreasonable as a matter of law—particularly on the record before us and in the specific context of a claim arising under the privacy provision in article I, section 10 of our state constitution.”

The legislation, known as the Fetal Heartbeat and Protection from Abortion Act, prohibits individuals from procuring an abortion after a child’s heartbeat is detected, which often happens at six weeks into the pregnancy. There are limited restrictions for cases of rape and incest or to protect and preserve the health and safety of the mother. In the lawsuit, brought about by Planned Parenthood, the case was made that the ban “blatantly disregards that precedent” that was set down by the court’s previous ruling.
The only hold out on the bench was Chief Justice Donald Beatty, who stated in his dissent that the majority “abandoned previous precedent.”
“Today, however, the majority has abandoned the precedent established just months earlier by this Court and, despite its insistence otherwise, has turned a blind eye to the obvious fact that the 2021 Act and the 2023 Act are the same,” Beatty stated in the dissent. “The result will essentially force an untold number of affected women to give birth without their consent. I am hard-pressed to think of a greater governmental intrusion by a political body.”
This legislation will end up saving untold numbers of lives. It’s time for the pro-life crowd to take the “W,” then get back to work to ensure that abortion is completely abolished and criminalized.
