The subcommittee gave the bill favorable approval, advancing it to the next step for passing the Senate this years. Voting in favor of
S 907 were Subcommittee Chairman Senator Tom Corbin, R-Greenville, Senator Billy Garrett, R-Greenwood, and Senator Richard Cash, R-Anderson. Senator Marlon Kimpson, D-Charleston, and Senator Margie Bright-Matthews, D-Clarendon both opposed the bill.
Ms. Timenez urged the Senators to pass S 907, the Abortion Pill Reversal Bill, so that the abortion industry by law must give women information about how to reverse the procedure when they take the first pill. Senator Garrett, R-Greenwood, commended Ms. Timenez for her testimony. “Thank you for your courage,” he said. “God created that baby for you.”
The usual parade of pro-aborts testified against the bill claiming there is no evidence that the abortion pill reversal protocol works or is safe. But they could not counter the testimony of doctors who say they have helped numerous women reverse the abortion pill.
Of particular scientific interest was the testimony of Sally Zaleski, a Certified FertilityCare™ Practitioner of the Creighton Model. She is a member of the American Academy of FertilityCare Professionals. She told the subcommittee members that progesterone support in pregnancy “has been in use
for nearly 60 years.”
Mrs. Zaleski urged the subcommittee members to pass S 907 “which will provide women who don’t fully understand all of their options with a better level of healthcare through informed consent.”
South Carolina Citizens for Life presented more than two dozen statements of organizations and individuals in favor of the bill including Palmetto Family, South Carolina Baptist Convention, South Carolina Association of Pregnancy Care Centers, and the Catholic Diocese of Charleston.
