Post Date: 2023-08-25 02:13:26 by Charles_Byrd
In a splintered majority, the South Carolina supreme court in January 2023 ruled by a 3-to-2 vote (in Planned Parenthood v. South Carolina, aka Planned Parenthood I) that the heartbeat law that the state enacted in 2021 violated the state constitutional right to privacy.

Post Date: 2023-08-20 01:49:04 by Charles_Byrd

This process is representative democracy in action: the citizens will is implemented by the legislators and governor they elected. Click for Full Text!

But now everything has changed. As a result of decades of extreme moral decay, lawlessness is rampant and there are vast multitudes of young people that openly flaunt the rules of our society.
