Heartbeat Law's Instant Success

Pro-Life legislation saves lives - and quickly! Abortions at a Planned Parenthood facility have plummeted 70 percent since South Carolina’s heartbeat bill took effect last week. 

South Carolina Citizens for Life (SCCL), which is located directly across the street from the Planned Parenthood killing centre in Columbia, announced the incredible rate at which babies are being saved just days after the state Supreme Court upheld a law which bans most abortions after six weeks’ gestation. 

The “Fetal Heartbeat and Protection from Abortion Act” prohibits most elective abortions six weeks into pregnancy, with no protections prior to six weeks. Exceptions are in place for victims of rape up to 12 weeks, for “fatal fetal anomalies,” and to save the mother’s life.

Less than 24 hours after the South Carolina Supreme Court upheld the Fetal Heartbeat and Protection from Abortion Act, abortions dropped by 70 percent at the Planned Parenthood across the street from the South Carolina Citizens for Life office.

“Today was the first full abortion day since the new Heartbeat Law went into effect,” A Moment of Hope president Mark Baumgartner said, encouraging others to “praise the Lord with us” about the pro-life victory. 

“We typically have been seeing 20 abortions and today we saw only six,” he continued. “Thirteen clients arrived, six left before an abortion and another [came] on the ultrasound RV and decided to keep her baby.”
