Ultrasounds cut through pro-abortion lies

National Pro-Life Alliance

The abortion lobby fears the life-saving power of ultrasounds and will say or do anything they can to cover up the truth about abortion. For example, Cecile Richards, the President of the nation’s largest abortion provider Planned Parenthood, insisted that ultrasound laws set an “abhorrent precedent.” Of course, what Cecile really “abhors” about ultrasounds is how effective they are at saving lives.

In fact, a nationwide study has revealed that 78% of abortion-minded women who view an ultrasound image of their unborn baby reject abortion and choose life for their babies. That’s because ultrasounds compel women to recognize something the abortion lobby cannot tolerate -- that unborn babies are just as human as you or I. That’s why your National Pro-Life Alliance continues to push for tough ultrasound laws at the state and federal levels to show mothers the truth -- that abortion ends a human life.

By requiring that every abortionist show the mother an ultrasound of her child before performing an abortion, you and I can literally save thousands of unborn lives.

For Life,
Martin Fox, President
National Pro-Life Alliance
P.S. If you haven’t already done so, please click here to sign your petition in support of the Ultrasound Informed Consent Act.

New Members for GCRWC attending April meeting


Read SC Policy Council article here.


PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL YOUR STATE REPRESENTATIVE AND ASK HIM/HER TO VOTE AGAINST H. 5368.  This is a bill introduced by outgoing Rep. Walt McLeod on Wednesday, May 18th.  The unstated goal of this bill is to intimidate citizens from testifying at House or Senate subcommittee or committee hearings.  The two main parts of the bill are: 1.  to require testimony given at committee or subcommittee hearings to be given under oath, and 2. anyone who "willfully gives false, materially misleading, or materially incomplete testimony under oath is guilty of contempt of the General assembly."  The first offense of contempt of the General Assembly is a misdemeanor, punishable by a $100 minimum fine, a six-month imprisonment, or both.  The second offense is a felony and carries a minimum prison sentence of five years, or a fine at the discretion of the court.

As pointed out by the SC Policy Council, "the terms 'materially misleading' and 'materially incomplete' could mean just about anything. If a testifying citizen misstated a statistic or failed to mention a point lawmakers felt to be essential, would that open the citizen to a SLED investigation?"

The bill was introduced "without reference", so it bypassed the committee process and will go to the House floor for debate probably Tuesday or Wednesday of this week.  CALL YOUR STATE REPRESENTATIVE AND TELL HIM/HER TO VOTE AGAINST THIS BILL, THE SOUL PURPOSE OF WHICH IS TO STIFLE OUR FREEDOM OF SPEECH. 

Contact your representative here.

A Review of the South Carolina Department of Transportation

Follow this link to see the video of Representative Jonathon Hill giving one of the best floor speeches probably ever given at the SC Legislature:  

Rather than pass Hill’s amendment, the House passed Amendment 1A proposed by House leadership, which offers little in the way of true reform.  H.3579, with Amendment 1A, has been sent back to the Senate.  (Exerpt from Legislative Article by Debbie Spaugh)

Posted April 8: The SC legislators still have not acted on the Personhood Amendment. Visit Personhood South Carolina website.

Refugee bill sent to South Carolina House

NOW is a critical time in our state house regarding the refugee issue because S997 has passed
the Senate and is on the way to the House. Remember we have so much more influence at the
state level than at the federal level, that is why it is so important to form a good, friendly
relationship with your state representatives. (Read more)

"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world." — Anne Frank

This is an Action Alert regarding the "Roads Bill", H.3579, which was amended by
the Senate (Amendment 31A), passed on 3/9/2016, and returned to the House.
As I pointed out in my article in the GCRWC March Newsletter, the Senate version
did remove the gas tax hike, but failed to make real reforms to the transportation
funding system. The House will probably take up H.3579, with Amendment 31A
the week of April 11th.
We need to call or email our State Representatives and urge them to kill the bill.
The citizens of South Carolina want real reforms. Read more.

This is a link to an article about funding of I-185. According to this, no tax dollars were used to build it or maintain it. The tolls are used to pay the bond debt and to pay the DOT for maintenance.
