The SC Fetal Heartbeat Protection from Abortion Act bill is pending in the SC Senate. This bill prohibits an abortion being performed once a fetal heartbeat is detected. It passed the SC House of Representatives, and sub- and full committees in the Senate last year. This year, the bill is waiting for a vote on the S.C. Senate floor. Grass-roots advocacy is the most effective way for us to ensure life-protecting laws are passed in South Carolina. This is not a political fight: it is a spiritual, moral and humanitarian issue.

We must be a voice for the unborn children who have been conceived with their own soul and are made in the image and likeness of God.
