Bishop welcomes ban on most late-term abortions

May 20, 2016

Following passage by large margins in the South Carolina house (79-29) and senate (36-9), the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act has been signed into law by Gov. Nikki Haley.

South Carolina is the fourteenth state since 2010 to enact a ban on most abortions after the twentieth week of pregnancy.

“This act will support not only the moral law but also proven scientific fact that unborn children feel pain by at least 20 weeks of development after fertilization,” said Bishop Robert Guglielmone of Charleston, the state’s sole diocese.

    Kudos to South Carolina. Pray for the appointment of a Supreme Court justice who will balance the Court's consideration of cases related to abortion. Presently, liberals who favor abortion prevail.
