Extremely Disappointing Decision from South Carolina Supreme Court
(Columbia, S.C.) – The South Carolina Supreme Court released its opinion striking down the Heartbeat Bill. See below for South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Drew McKissick’s full statement.
“Today’s decision by the South Carolina Supreme Court in overturning the Heartbeat Bill is extremely disappointing and yet another unfortunate example of judicial activism. The decision goes against the will of the voters in South Carolina and is yet another reminder of the critical need to reform the judicial selection and election process. We look forward to working with the General Assembly to promote that cause as well as to continue to protect the lives of the unborn”
