from Palmetto Family Council: By a vote of 18-4 on Tuesday, the South Carolina House Judiciary Committee advanced H3548, to the full S.C. House. The bill prevents abortionists from killing living unborn children by ripping them apart so that they bleed to death. The language of the dismemberment ban is similar to the ban on partial birth abortion that the S.C. General Assembly passed in 1997 and which was upheld as constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court in Gonzales v Carhart. The dismemberment ban passed the Constitutional Laws Subcommittee 3-0 on March 8 following strong pro-life testimony.
