South Carolina Statehouse Monument to Dead Fetus

The economy is in shambles, the Iraq war is costing us $15 million per hour, more than 4,000 military died in the war, half a million people are losing their jobs every month, millions are homeless and just as many go hungry every day, almost 20,000 die each year because they have no health care, 14,000 Americans per day are losing health care insurance but at least we have our priorities right!


Thirty-three state House members, including four local legislators, have put their support behind a proposed statehouse monument that would memorialize “South Carolina children whose lives ended before their birth.”

Reps. Wendell Gilliard (D-Charleston), Jim Merrill (R-Daniel Island), Tim Scott (R-North Charleston), and Mike Sottile (R-Isle of Palms) are co-sponsors of the bill. The monument would be paid for through private donations (the bill stresses that donors would not have to be revealed in public financial disclosures), and the state would be expected to pay for the maintenance of the monument.

The bill reads:

A JOINT RESOLUTION
TO CREATE THE SOUTH CAROLINA UNBORN CHILDREN’S MONUMENT COMMISSION TO ERECT A MONUMENT ON THE STATE HOUSE GROUNDS AS A MEMORIAL TO SOUTH CAROLINA CHILDREN WHOSE LIVES ENDED BEFORE THEIR BIRTH AND TO PROVIDE FOR THE POWERS AND DUTIES OF THE COMMISSION AND TO REQUIRE PRIVATE FUNDING FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THIS MONUMENT.

Usually, we would just label this is pandering and move on without mention, but 33 out of 124 representatives is a healthy sample of support. It’s the latest in a flood of anti-abortion legislation, including a proposal for a 24-hour waiting period before abortions. That bill is expected to be debated next week.

If the fucking fetuses are with jesus and mary, why are they so fucking sad? Blithering idiots.
Thanks for the replies, CJ & Mark; both of you hit the nail on the head!

Fact is that the religious righting nuts care more about a fetus thank about a human being.
"God" is the biggest abortionist of all; anywhere from 20% to 50% of pregnancies are miscarried, often before the woman even knows she is pregnant.
Lets not forget all of the unborn "god" killed in the OT.

Let's see, I think it was Hosea 13:16. Samaria shall become desolate: for she hath rebelled against her god: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up.

Oh wait, they don't go by the OT anymore.

Fucking loonitics!

I dispise the Christian religion with all of it's hypocricies.
