If a new bill in South Carolina becomes law, abortionists who detect heartbeats in unborn babies can’t kill them.
The Republican-majority House of Representatives in that state passed a fetal heartbeat bill, which would require women seeking abortions to undergo an ultrasound of the baby to determine if a heartbeat is detectable. Heartbeats can be heard as early as six weeks.
An abortionist would face two years in jail and a fine of up to $10,000 if he or she kills the baby unless there’s a medical emergency.
The state’s Senate likely will pass their version of the bill, and Gov. Henry McMaster will sign it. He’s trying to defund abortion giant Planned Parenthood. Expect an abortion-lobby lawsuit after the governor signs the bill.
Star Parker, founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, had some questions for a Republican senator who said she wouldn’t support a Supreme Court nominee “hostile” to Roe v. Wade:
Recently, Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins expressed dismay at border security policies that separate children from their parents. Collins called this “traumatizing to children, who are innocent victims, and it is contrary to our values in this country.”
At the same time, Collins says she will not support a Supreme Court nominee “who demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade.”
I ask Collins, is the unborn child, who has a heartbeat and can feel pain, not also an innocent victim? Does Collins not find this violence on life also “contrary to our values in this country”?
Perhaps Collins finds taking a position on whether the unborn child is human life, like Obama, above her pay grade.
