SC DEMOCRATS MOBILIZE AGAINST S.1. SC FETAL HEARTBEAT & PROTECTION FROM ABORTION ACT
SC GOP prioritize restricting women’s access to reproductive health during COVID-19.
COLUMBIA, SC— Democrats across the State are asking voters to submit written, video or in person statement expressing their opposition to Senate Bill 1, SC Fetal Heartbeat & Protection From Abortion Act.
With a submission deadline of 9am, Tuesday, January 12, to testify virtually or in person, Democrats are using a multi platform approach to mobilize the masses. Many of whom are outraged during a global pandemic, Republicans are focusing their attention here and not on bringing relief to South Carolina workers and business owners whose careers and companies continue to be mangled by COVID-19.
“Self-proclaimed pro-life Republicans are ignoring the over 6,000 dead South Carolinians ripped from their families by COVID, so they can effectively limit women’s reproductive access forever in this State. ” said SCDP Chair Trav Robertson, Jr. “It’s time to hold Republicans accountable for their religious hypocrisy and for their failed leadership as we enter ten months of the pandemic, with no clear answers for families who are hurting economically. It is laughable that these Republicans call themselves people of faith.”
The subcommittee hearing of the Senate Medical Affairs Committee on Senate Bill 1, SC Fetal Heartbeat Act will be held at 10am Thursday, January 14 and live streamed via www.scstatehouse.gov. SCDP will monitor and live tweet the proceedings via Twitter.
