medical heartbeat screenVoters in South Carolina have helped in the battle to approve pro-life legislation, but a non-profit, single-issue organization "devoted to restoring legal protection to the unborn and to protecting innocent human life by eliminating abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia from our society" says that does not mean the state's fight for life is over.

Holly Gatling of South Carolina Citizens for Life tells One News Now a full slate of pro-life bills is in the legislature, including a heartbeat measure that would ban abortions from being performed on babies whose heartbeat can be detected.

"It will include the abortion pill reversal information requiring abortionists to provide women who take the abortion pill with information on the window of opportunity for reversal," Gatling continues. "It will include also the dismemberment bill," which would ban the dismemberment of living babies in the womb.

As for getting the bill that includes all of these measures passed, Gatling says it should sail through the House. The snag in the past has been getting the votes in the South Carolina Senate.

"Our South Carolina Senate has changed substantially, and we have more pro-life Republicans now," the pro-lifer adds. "We are more likely to get through procedural moves, and I'm very optimistic."

That does not, however, mean that South Carolina voters should not contact their elected representatives in both chambers just to let them know that they are watching the situation.
