Senators in South Carolina approved a proposal to ban virtually all abortions six weeks following conception after removing exemptions for pregnancies that are the result of rape and incest.

Bill H.3020, more commonly referred to as the fetal heartbeat bill, bans abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can occur as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.

â€śOct. 23 (UPI) -- Senators in South Carolina approved a proposal to ban virtually all abortions six weeks following conception after removing exemptions for pregnancies that are the result of rape and incest.â€ť
"Everybody acknowledges that rape and incest are terrible crimes," said Republican Sen. Richard Cash, who proposed the exemptions to be removed. "However, the little baby, the boy or the girl, is still an innocent life and life is still the most valuable right we have as human beings."
First, let me say that I praise the Lord that the above will undoubtedly save some innocent lives. But my guess is it will not become law and let me also add this. It is implying that an embryo is not a real human life and they can be legally murdered during the first 6 weeks.
This is what the womanâ€™s liberation movement has led to. They can now legally murder their own children. Once Pandoraâ€™s Box was opened, it cannot be shut.
