CONNOR STATEMENT ON WAITING PERIOD BILL

Connor expresses support for expanding waiting period to full day

WEST COLUMBIA, SC – In response to the news that H.3245, the 24 Hours for Life bill, was being stalled in the Senate, Bill Connor released the following statement:

“Thanks to ultrasound technology, as more and more people see the development of human children in the womb, the tide is turning against unrestricted abortion in our country.

Our state has not fully taken advantage of this shift, and as a result we have the shortest waiting period in the nation.  H.3245 would help move our state in a more pro-life direction and save lives by expanding the waiting period from a single hour to the national norm of a full day.

Certain Senators are playing politics with the lives of children by delaying and filibustering this bill.  I call on the Senate to end the delays and pass this important piece of legislation.”

Bill Connor is a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army Reserves who received the Bronze Star for his service in combat as the senior American advisor in Helmand Province, Afghanistan.  Bill is the first post-9/11 combat veteran to announce for South Carolina statewide office.   In addition to his Reserve duties, Bill serves as the Chairman of the Board of Orangeburg Christian Academy.  Bill is a graduate of the Citadel and USC Law School.
