South Carolina Panel Passes Bill to Ban Abortions After 20 Weeks Because Babies Feel Pain (5974 hits)

by Dave Andrusko
Columbia, SC | LifeNews.com | 5/1/14 On Wednesday a subcommittee of the South Carolina Senate Medical Affairs Committee advanced the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act with amendments that will be considered in the full committee May 1.

“In conjunction with National Right to Life attorneys Mary Spaulding Balch and Jennifer Popik, South Carolina Citizens for Life is reviewing the amendments,” said Holly Gatling, SCCL executive director. “The tactic of our opponents is to raise red herrings, obfuscate, and talk about anything other than the horrific pain an unborn child feels as her arms and legs are being ripped off of her body.”

Gatling told NRL News Today, “We were not given the courtesy of seeing the amendments before the hearing on Wednesday, and the amendments were passed before any testimony was taken.” Gatling added, “Some amendments may not hurt the bill, but any amendment will delay passage.”

The abortion industry, its allies in the legislature, and the news media have adopted a familiar scare tactic. They argue that passing a law that protects a developmentally advanced unborn child from pain abortion beginning at 20 weeks will somehow ban contraception in South Carolina!

This is, of course, preposterous. Popik explained to the subcommittee members that the language in the pain-capable bill is virtually identical to language that has been in effect in state and federal laws for years, language that has had no impact on contraception in any state.

Popik also countered the testimony of an abortion proponent who tearfully told of “terminating” two of her less-than-perfect children. Popik is the mother of four, including 5-year-old twin daughters born with a genetic disorder.

“These children I have touched my life and the people around them in ways I cannot even explain to you,” she said. Children with disabilities diagnosed before birth “are capable of feeling pain no matter what their ‘potential’ may be in life,“ she said.
