64. "In memory of the fallen" - Firefighters, rightly, Yes; Unborn, wrongly, No Charleston, SC fire, June 18, 2007 - nine firefighters killed, most since 9-11, just over one mile from Charleston Women's Child-Murder-by-Abortion center
- Nine brave firefighters sacrificed their lives on Monday, June 18 while fighting a raging fire that was described as a "30-foot tornado of flames," and trying to save the lives of two employees at the Super Sofa Store, 1807 Savannah Highyway (US Rte 17), Charleston, South Carolina. It was the "worst single incident to claim U.S. firefighters lives since the Sept. 11 attacks." (The State, June 19, 2007, Columbia, SC).
- The Charleston Women's Death Camp for Pre-birth Human Beings which has murdered over 46,000 children (1988-2005 alone) is just over one mile (straight line) from the site of Monday's tragedy where nine brave men lost their lives as protectors and rescuers.

65. June 28, 2007 Memo to SC State Representatives:  Will the GOP lose the White House in 2008 ?
After 34+ years, Republicans have still failed to pass fetal "personhood" legislation to end abortion
in our state and nation.  Foreign Invasion (12-20 million illegal aliens) and War (Iraq) are two [of]
God's end-game judgments on nations that shed innocent blood (Abortion).  2 Kings 24:1-4

66. Fetal 'Personhood' denied by Republican-majority SC Legislature in 2007 (2008 ?)
According to the language of Roe, if a Legislature will declare the 'fetus' is legally a 'person ' at fertilization, without 'exceptions,' Abortion is over ! Neither the Republican-majority SC House, nor the Republican-majority SC Senate, even held Judiciary Subcommittee public hearings on the Right to Life Act of SC (H.3284 / S.313) during the entire January 2007 through June 2007 SC Legislative session, finally adjourning June 29.

  is a national sin, 9-11 was a national calamity.  More and greater Divine Judgment is coming upon South Carolina

TOCongressman Gresham Barrett
          Lieutenant Governor André Bauer
        State Representative Nikki Haley
        Attorney General Henry McMaster

RE: 
YOUR POSITION ON THE SANCTITY OF LIFE
1) Support for
S.450 / H .3526  the SC Personhood Bill
2) Commitment to De-fund Abortion in the State Budget

146. BRIGGS v. ELLIOTT and the SC Personhood Bill (S.450 / H.3526)
- Just as SC’s Briggs v. Elliott as part of Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka (KS) (1954)
  helped overturn
Plessy v. Ferguson (1896) ("separate but equal"),
- So too the
SC Personhood Bill can, LORD willing, help overturn
  the unconstitutional abomination of Roe v. Wade (1973).
- Distributed to State Senators in Senate Chamber, State House, Columbia, SC - May 27, 2010

147. SC House-Senate Budget Conference Committee abandons unborn babies in State Budget compromise
- The six-man ( FOUR REPUBLICANS, two Democrats ) House-Senate Budget Conference Committee
agreed to throw out the SC House-passed amendment (
March 17-18) banning state-funding of abortions
in the State Health Insurance Plan for rape, incest, and unrestricted life of the mother "abortions", in the
FY 2011 State Budget compromise [ FY 2011 State Appropriations (Budget) Bill -
H 4657 ].        
-
The
Republican-majority SC Senate had earlier ( April 28) refused to pass the same amendment.    
May 27, 2010

148. Difference of just FOUR SC Senators forcing South Carolina
to continue to FUND State Health Insurance Plan abortions

If just FOUR SC Senators out of the 24 who voted to force Christian pro-life taxpayers to pay for
the shedding of innocent blood
on April 28th had switched their vote, from pro-child-murder-funding,
to a vote to do their duty as civil ministers and protect innocent human life, instead of forcing us to be
complicit in the destruction of innocent human life, then South Carolina would have been spared another
year of funding child-murder for selected "abortions" in the State Health Insurance Plan, part of the
SC State Budget ( 2010-2011 State General Appropriations Bill -
H 4657 ).  Does SC really expect to be
blessed financially in our State finances when some of those finances are used to
shed innocent blood,
to rebel against God, and violate His Holy Word (
Matthew 6:33, Proverb 14:34, Psalm 9:17) ?    
Our leaders reckon without God.

the National Right to Life Committee, the South Carolina Baptist Convention and the Palmetto Family Council."

- Romanist Americans United for Life, like National Right to Life is one of Rome's "pro-life" [sic] front organizations.   
- Ecumenical Palmetto Family Council is the South Carolina affiliate of ecumenical Focus on the Family
- Ecumenical SC Citizens for Life is the South Carolina chapter of Romanist National Right to Life.
- Ecumenical SC Baptist Convention is the South Carolina member of the ecumenical Southern Baptist Convention .

Palmetto Family Council received active advisory assistance and support from CFR / Jesuit-advised
Americans United for "Life" [sic],
whose senior legal counsel, Clarke Forsythe, has directly attacked
the personhood position posted on the Columbia Christians for Life
website to end "abortion". Clarke Forsythe's
written attack is posted on National Review Online and LifeNews.com. So we have a CFR / Jesuit-advised
Vatican "pro-life" [front] organization opposed to State-level personhood legislation to END "abortion",
advising the ecumenical Palmetto Family Council. 
We are not only combating the obvious pro-abortion enemies
of God's gift of the sanctity of human life, we are also and especially combating Rome to end "abortion" in America.

God's Requirement for MURDER is Justice, not incremental regulation !  Pass
personhood
now.

of the National Conference of [ Roman ] Catholic Bishops (NCCB)

"The Supreme Court decision of January 22, 1973, overthrowing all existing abortion laws, led
to an enormous growth in the movement.  The National Right to Life Committee which had
been founded in 1968 under the auspices of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops,
in 1973 became autonomous and non-sectarian. 
It is the largest and most influential national
organization, with well over two thousand local affiliates by the 1980s."

162. Romanist Phyllis Schlafly's Eagle Forum Opposes Colorado Personhood Amendment
Dame of Malta, Phyllis Schlafly of the Roman Catholic Establishment is yet another prominent
Roman Catholic voice against recognizing now, the God-given, unalienable right to life of every
human being as a "Person" beginning at fertilization, in State statutory or constitutional law. 
Multiple States over the years have been pursuing this principled pro-life effort to END "abortion"
in America.   
   
The four major enemies of State-level personhood amendments to END "abortion" in America are:    
1) ROMAN CATHOLIC BISHOPS [ appointed by the Pope ]
2) NATIONAL RIGHT TO LIFE
3) AMERICANS UNITED FOR LIFE
4) EAGLE FORUM
