SOUTH CAROLINA, USA South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster and other pro-life advocates gathered Wednesday to fight for the so-called "Heartbeat Bill." Senators will be debating the bill that would ban almost all abortions after six weeks of pregnancy.
The bill passed the House last year and went through a lot of changes during senate committees this past fall.
With a new session comes a renewed push from supporters of the bill, but some lawmakers say it won't pass.
South Carolina's senators poised to debate one of the most broad-sweeping abortion bans in the country. Anti-abortion advocates gathered today in support of the bill.
"Whenever they pass it, I will sign it!" Governor McMaster said at the gathering.
Governor McMaster called the right to life fundamental in South Carolina.

SC PING PLEASE
If an EMT finds no heartbeat, they try like heck to get one started!!

God bless him
It has been 47 years and over 60 million murdered babies since Roe v Wade
I may yet, in my lifetime see it overturned
