SC Abortion Count Released

|| By FITSNEWS || The government-subsidized Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) performed fifty-eight abortions in 2014, according to data released by the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC).

Wait … aren’t tax dollars not supposed to subsidize abortions?  Especially the sort of late-term abortions typically performed in a hospital setting?

All told, 5,714 abortions were performed in South Carolina last year – including 1,645 abortions at facilities run by Planned Parenthood.  The national abortion provider – which was recently implicated in gruesome scam involving the harvesting and sale of body parts from aborted fetuses – receives hundreds of millions of dollars in government funding each year.

Multiple leaders at the state and federal level are pushing to have Planned Parenthood defunded and investigated.

Other leaders?  Not so much … 

The South Carolina abortion data was provided in a letter (.pdf HERE) to S.C. Rep. Garry Smith of Greenville, S.C. after SCDHEC declined to make it available to a pro-life organization.

That group – S.C. Citizens for Life – says the information it requested was initially “denied without explanation.”

SCDHEC also previously refused to release information regarding which hospitals performed abortions – although its new director Catherine Heigel said in her letter to Smith that the agency would “include this identifying information in future reports.”

you do realize that two REPUBLICANS voted against defunding PP. Which self-describing libertarian congressmen voted against it? Rand Paul? oh that’s right he sponsored the bill.
but…but…Ron Paul only wanted to pass it off to the states….
Uh, no. He believed States are the only ones who should prosecute murder. No different than say how Dylann Roof would not be able to be put to death enough in SC courts, but the DOJ wants to prosecute him for a hate crime.

Democrats R abortion's face August 21, 2015 at 3:42 pm

As a rule, Republicans are openly and adamantly AGAINST abortion.
They are pummeled and attacked for it, in campaign after campaign, whereas Democrats are lauded for being adamantly FOR more and easier abortion. Republicans are ALWAYS the ones introducing legislation to limit abortion, or end it.

Because the DNC is telling its Stupid Fick robots- like you- that the vote on PP criminalizes the GOP instead of the FILTHY PIECES OF SHIT LIKE YOU AND BARACK OBAMA, don’t believe it….Pushing your Bullshit is just making you look like the slimy little coward you are.

Obama is on record calling a pregnancy a mistake and saying he’d abort his own grandchild.

You dirty vermin ALWAYS run from what you are, when it manifests.

You have BLOOD all over your hands. Now stand up for what you did…so we will know who the slap the FUCKING shit out of, you disgusting and weasly asshole.

liblov August 21, 2015 at 3:50 pm


Your hate is no excuse August 21, 2015 at 4:01 pm

AGAIN: You HATE Republicans who oppose Abortion. You, on the other hand, get in the streets and Scream loudly for more, and limitless, abortion.

You also claim that ALL abortions are safe, legal and tidy, and beg millions in handouts.

But now: You got caught as a FUCKING liar, and killing defenseless babies. Sucking their brains out while their hearts were still beating, then callously laughing about it.

You are a FILTHY and heartless goul.

Claiming some remiss by someone you hate because he has an ‘R’ by his name will never exonerate you.

Stand up now that you have been exposed, you stench-filled dirtbag.

We know who you are, and we’re willing to defend the souls of those dead children that you nastiest of MONSTERS mutilated.

Stand up and take your medicine you insufferable feces bag. You deserve ALL that comes upon you for this.

Seeing as you have just done this and considering your response to my post you are either a lunatic with computer and internet access or just Will strumming up trouble. Maybe you should try another dance, the tango is considered the most difficult. Perhaps the rumba, then you could use it as an opening to cubans about the evils of communism.

Like GOP Rep DesJarlais from TN – “The court transcript of DesJarlais’ divorce hearing reveals that, in 2000, he pressured a 24-year-old patient who had been his mistress to have an abortion.

His ex-wife also had two abortions. One, he claimed, was for “therapeutic reasons,” due to a drug she was taking. The other occurred simply because things were not going well in their marriage.”

You mean those Republicans?

PS: The DNC must LOVE voters like you. You are perfect for the Democrat Party.

BrigidBernadette August 24, 2015 at 8:42 pm

That is not exactly what happened. Many Republicans voted against it as a procedural vote, so it will be up for debate in a few months, after three committee investigations with hearings, etc. are in full swing or complete, plus the release of possibly dozens more hours of video, making it harder for Dems to defend this slaughterhouse. Obama will veto it anyway, but if they can override his veto, then this no vote will be well worth it to ensure passage later. They did manage to get ACORN shut down, but no one is trying to shut down PP, just stop giving them federal funding. The republican plan will take the money PP gets and give it to legitimate providers of womens health care, in clinics that far outnumber PPs. If PP has so many supporters, let them remain a ‘non-profit’ and they can support it, privately.

5,700? That’s it? Only 1/4 by Planned Parenthood? That’s it? Holy cow, I thought based on the commentary it was like 50,000.

well-i-am into it August 21, 2015 at 4:24 pm

I suppose Rocky, there is such irony in the willingness to perform late-term abortions past 20 weeks, 58 of them in 2014 alone by MUSC, and MUSC’s drive to raise 350 million for the new Children’s hospital. See that? I suppose the name of “Children” comes in very handy when you want millions from enthusiastic citizens and public money from legislature, but that is not matched by any respect for helpless life when there was a chance to say “NO”. Public cannot continue to fund such barbarism.

Rocky Verdad August 21, 2015 at 4:28 pm

See below, may serious input is a question. How many of those were D&Cs performed on someone who arrived at the hospital in the middle of a mis-carriage. I don’t know – that’s my question. Is it half, all?

well-i-am into it August 21, 2015 at 4:36 pm

Well…MUSC can explain all that, cant it? We all are waiting for an official “explanation” from MUSC leadership. And then, we all will have more questions, wont we? ’bout time citizens wake up to the rot around us in our great country.

The Colonel August 21, 2015 at 4:43 pm

All you’d have to do is look for ICD-9 code 69.01, 69.02 and 69.09 that’ll tell you why the D&C was done.

Peter O. August 21, 2015 at 3:38 pm

How many of those 58 were medically necessary to save the life of the mother?

The Colonel August 21, 2015 at 3:49 pm

Zero, the numbers are something like 1 in 1,800-10,000 depending on whose report you believe.

Rocky Verdad August 21, 2015 at 4:03 pm

How many were DNCs conducted at the time of a mis-carriage. We probably don’t know that answer either.

The Colonel August 21, 2015 at 4:07 pm

In the pre abortion on demand days, many a procedure coded as a D&C was actually an elective abortion. I think at this point we’ve gotten past that so it might be a useful study.

Rocky Verdad August 21, 2015 at 4:19 pm

I just know that if you begin to have a miscarriage – and you go to the hospital, and the doctors determine it’s a lost cause, they perform a D&C. So I’d just think we’d want to know, if the hospital performed 58, and all were assocaited with a miscarriage, then they didn’t perform actual “abortions” as the right would define one.

The Colonel August 21, 2015 at 4:44 pm

ICD-9 codes will tell you what was fine and why.

Peter O. August 21, 2015 at 4:58 pm

I think I’ve heard the rate is about 2-3% of all abortions fall under the “life of the mother” category. MUSC accounted for slightly more than 1% of all SC abortions. I’m willing to bet the hospital will argue they were all done because of medical complications (probably not all for the mother’s life).
I don’t pretend to know a lot about this subject, but I think we need more info to paint a better picture. We need a breakdown on the justifications for these 58 abortions. But it’s also important to get the total among all state hospitals to see if they all do it or if many refer medical cases to MUSC.

The Colonel August 21, 2015 at 5:23 pm

I’ve seen numbers between 1.3% and 15% but after reading the reports, 2-3% seems to be the real number.

easterndumbfuckistan August 21, 2015 at 6:47 pm

MUSC get’s a bunch of the worst of the worst cases from around the state and even some out of state. I can see there rates being higher than normal. Maybe all 58 were “medically necessary”, it’s not out of the realm of possibility. 58 works out to one every 6 to 7 days which isn’t a huge number considering the types of cases MUSC handles. I’m with The Colonel the ICD-9 / ICD-10 (Is MUSC ICD-10 yet?) codes would tell us much more.

Tazmaniac August 21, 2015 at 4:05 pm

Save her love life, sex life, campus life, just what did you need to know. The vast majority of abortions are easy fixes for irresponsibility to keep from inconveniencing the conceived person(the term “mother” here would be a crime against the English language). This benefits society because there are a lot less of those dreadful Blacks and rednecks to have to deal with.

21stconfed August 21, 2015 at 3:39 pm

I don’t understand what “names of hospitals” they meant when they posted some of them? I know a doctor from “a non-profit upstate rural hospital” (if i can’t prove it is it slander?) said we needed to consider termination of our daughter because of her short leg would mean down syndrome. Now just turned 3 she can outrun most adults, not just fat ones either. Oh she like reading and puzzles (no down syndrome).

heeey August 21, 2015 at 3:52 pm

A blog written by a man….trying to give opinions on what a woman should and shouldn’t be allowed to do with her own body, with a GOP twist. Shocking for sure. so Shocking. Get over it old men. You shouldn’t get a say in what we do with our bodies. Until you’ve been in someone’s shoes who is pregnant faced with this decision you don’t get a say. You don’t know why MUSC may have needed to abort the baby, it could have been to save the mothers life. Stop judging people and focus on WAY more important things. If this ever gets “banned” its not going to stop abortions, instead we will have women getting back alley abortions, admitted to hospitals afterwards due to infections and then the tax payers will REALLY pay.

liblov August 21, 2015 at 3:55 pm

So if you don’t have kids you shouldn’t have a say about child abuse? Not in the military then no say in wars? Don’t own a business-no say in regulations? How about if you don’t own land you can’t vote? Sounds great to me.

guest August 21, 2015 at 6:15 pm

Child abuse is illegal. War needs approval by Congress. Businesses follow regulations. You need to be 18 and an US citizen to vote. Abortion is legal. I might have strong feelings about men being able to reproduce – old coots, criminals, dead beats etc. should I be allowed to dictate the reproductive rights of the male species?

Holly O’Donnell, a former procurement technician at StemExpress, said at Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose a co-worker named Jessica brought over the most fully developed baby she had ever seen and said, “I want you to see something kind of cool.”

There she saw the “closest thing to a [fully-developed] baby I’ve seen.”

“It had a face. It wasn’t completely torn up,” she said. “Its nose was very pronounced.”

“She has one of her instruments, and she taps the heart, and it starts beating.”

“I’m looking at this fetus, and it’s heart is beating,” O’Donnell said in astonishment.

“I don’t know if that constitutes it’s technically dead, or it’s alive,” she continued.

flip August 21, 2015 at 6:46 pm

O’Donnell said that, after showing her the child’s beating heart, Jessica told her, “This is a really good fetus, and it looks like we can procure a lot from it.”

She then asked O’Donnell to remove the baby’s brain with scissors through the baby’s face.

“I can’t even describe what that feels like,” O’Donnell said. “That was the moment I knew I couldn’t work for the company anymore.

It’s not “her own body” that is being aborted. It is the body of the other human being in their initial life stage of development.

Don’t be surprised if this number of abortions in increased at a later date because it may take them months to verify the info.

That place is a disgrace.

Thanks for giving us the libertarians genius analysis. And why am I not surprised?

Liberalism's human sacrifice. August 21, 2015 at 4:57 pm

Liberals will do anything to use YOUR hideous crimes against humanity to try to damage Republicans. This is NOT Nikki Haley’s. No amount of scheming will make it hers.

Abortion is yours. And the murder of these babies is YOURS. You have BLOOD on your hands. Repent, and disavow the Murder of babies, and then we can talk.

Until then, OWN IT. You get out and march for more abortions Republicans are peripheral players. But this is ALL you and one of your most celebrated sacraments.

It’d be nice if you admitted what you are, and what you’ve done, and begin the process of healing. But quit with the Bullshit. That’s is useless.

Our laws are based on Judeo Christian values. God instructs us to protect life, and displays anger when we fail to protect life, especially of children. You remove those Judeo Christian values…we have no moral basis for anything we ever do. Anything can be justified any which way and anything can be made lawful and unlawful, merely on the whim of men (and women). If we come to a mindset as a nation that we must protect innocent life at all cost, then we will all find a way to take care of babies when they are born.

Forced pregnancy, which is an epidemic in America, is aggravated rape and should be treated as such.

Our Immigration Policy should be abort and deport. In every other circumstance abortion should be illegal with any “doctor” performing an abortion charged with 1st degree premeditated murder and sentenced to death by burning.
