Ultrasounds cut through pro-abortion lies
National Pro-Life Alliance
The abortion lobby fears the life-saving power of ultrasounds and will say or do anything they can to cover up the truth about abortion. For example, Cecile Richards, the President of the nation’s largest abortion provider Planned Parenthood, insisted that ultrasound laws set an “abhorrent precedent.” Of course, what Cecile really “abhors” about ultrasounds is how effective they are at saving lives.
In fact, a nationwide study has revealed that 78% of abortion-minded women who view an ultrasound image of their unborn baby reject abortion and choose life for their babies. That’s because ultrasounds compel women to recognize something the abortion lobby cannot tolerate — that unborn babies are just as human as you or I. That’s why your National Pro-Life Alliance continues to push for tough ultrasound laws at the state and federal levels to show mothers the truth — that abortion ends a human life.
By requiring that every abortionist show the mother an ultrasound of her child before performing an abortion, you and I can literally save thousands of unborn lives.
Martin Fox, President
National Pro-Life Alliance

South Carolina Policy Council: HOUSE LEGISLATION WOULD MAKE IT A FELONY TO GIVE ‘INCOMPLETE’ TESTIMONY
THIS IS AN ACTION ALERT FROM DEBBIE SPAUGH, GCRWC LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE CHAIR
Follow this link to see the video of Representative Jonathon Hill giving one of the best floor speeches probably ever given at the SC Legislature: http://jonathonhill.com/hypocrisy/.
Posted April 8: The SC legislators still have not acted on the Personhood Amendment. Visit Personhood South Carolina website.
NOW is a critical time in our state house regarding the refugee issue because S997 has passed
the Senate and is on the way to the House. Remember we have so much more influence at the
state level than at the federal level, that is why it is so important to form a good, friendly
relationship with your state representatives. (Read more)

ACTION ALERT FROM DEBBIE SPAUGH, GCRWC LEGISLATIVE CHAIR
This is an Action Alert regarding the “Roads Bill”, H.3579, which was amended by
the Senate (Amendment 31A), passed on 3/9/2016, and returned to the House.
As I pointed out in my article in the GCRWC March Newsletter, the Senate version
did remove the gas tax hike, but failed to make real reforms to the transportation
funding system. The House will probably take up H.3579, with Amendment 31A
the week of April 11th.
We need to call or email our State Representatives and urge them to kill the bill.
The citizens of South Carolina want real reforms. Read more.
This is a link to an article about funding of I-185. According to this, no tax dollars were used to build it or maintain it. The tolls are used to pay the bond debt and to pay the DOT for maintenance.
