Rep. Jonathon Hill (R) and five other lawmakers serve as co-sponsors of the Unborn Victims of Violence Act (H4046). The legislation declares that the state of South Carolina and members of the General Assembly are obligated to use their authority, as consistent with the United States Constitution, to nullify the opinions of the Supreme Court of the United States in Roe v. Wade, thereby protecting preborn babies from murder.
When passed, the legislation will penalize any violent crime that causes the death of, or bodily injury to, a preborn child with the same punishment provided for the death or bodily injury to the child’s mother.
“The number of babies murdered each year in South Carolina has risen year-over-year for the last three years, said Hill. The Roe decision happened because states failed to protect life from conception and failed to prescribe equal penalties for taking unborn lives. Unlike other bills that have been proposed in South Carolina, H.4046 confronts both of these issues head-on by declaring that abortion is murder, and requiring it to be prosecuted as such, regardless of what the Supreme Court decides.”
“Establishing justice is the very foundation of the Christian faith. Christ established justice for us, interposing on our behalf by laying down His life for ours. Likewise, we should interpose for our preborn neighbors and establish justice on their behalf, said Matt Brock, End Abortion Now Representative in South Carolina
End Abortion Now is a ministry of Apologia Church in Chandler, Arizona, which believes it is the responsibility of the Church to abolish abortion by standing on the Bible as the authoritative and sufficient Word of God. In contrast to the pro-life movement—which operates on the basis of political pragmatism and supposed neutrality—End Abortion Now seeks to establish justice with righteous legislation that criminalizes abortion.
Action for Life is a political lobbyist group committed to abolishing abortion by drafting and supporting bills at the state and federal levels, Action for Life brings awareness to the murder of innocent children in the United States, mobilizing Christians to take action to protect their preborn neighbors.
