Thanks to the strong leadership of Rep. Greg Delleney (Chester) the bill changing South Carolina’s abortion reflection period from ONE HOUR to TWENTY FOUR HOURS cleared an important hurdle yesterday.
After an hour or so of debate, the SC House Judiciary Committee passed H.3245 on a voice vote without amendment.
The debate was not without fireworks, as freshman pro-life Rep. Wendy Nanney (Greenville) stood tall for the bill in the face of cross-examination by pro-abortion Rep. Todd Rutherford (Richland).
The legislation now moves to the House floor, where it will be up for a vote soon.
Please watch for instructions from Palmetto Family Alliance on how you can help with that key roll call.
If you made a call or sent an email, thank you! If you didn’t, we will need you on the next vote.
Note: At ONE HOUR, South Carolina’s reflection period is the shortest in the country among states with waiting periods. TWENTY FOUR hours is the national standard.
