South Carolina voters just taught three Republican Senators a lesson about stabbing Pro-Lifers in the back

South Carolina is one of the most conservative states in America.

The people expect their elected officials to oppose abortion and defend the sanctity of life.

And South Carolina voters just taught three Republican Senators a lesson about stabbing Pro-Lifers in the back.

South Carolina has a law on the books that bans abortion after six weeks of pregnancy.

Following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in 2022, South Carolina lawmakers originally planned to pass a total ban on abortion.

But three Republican women in the State Senate – Senators Penry Gustafson, Sandy Senn, and Senator Katrina Shealy – sold out and fought for the law to have exceptions for rape and incest and only apply to abortions after six weeks of pregnancy.

As the Guardian reported, these three Republican Senators “blocked legislation to outlaw abortion from the point of conception in the state.”

But South Carolina voters taught these Senators a lesson in Tuesday’s Primary election.

“The state’s three Republican female senators are facing rough election results,” WCNC reported. “Senators Penry Gustafson and Sandy Senn lost their seats and Senator Katrina Shealy is heading to the June 25 runoff.”

Gustafson and Senn paid the price at the ballot box for their pro-life betrayals.

And Katrina Shealy could pay the price in the run-off election on June 25.

State Representative Matt Leber defeated Sandy Senn by 31 votes.

“There was a backlash,” Leber said. “And Senator Senn lost her seat.”

Before Tuesday, there were only five women in the South Carolina State Senate.

But two of them went down in flames on Tuesday. 

As usual, they did not waste time whining about their loss to the left-wing press. 

“I am extremely concerned about the lack of female voices,” Gustafson told WCNC Charlotte’s Julia Kauffman following her loss. “We are put back 100 years by what happened last night.”

She mentioned some of the attacks she heard while on the primary campaign trail.

“I was called a ‘RINO’ and a ‘baby killer,’ and a ‘flip-flopper’ and a ‘liar,’ and I’m really none of those things,” Gustafson said. “When you have Republicans coming after a group of Republican women, like all of them in this Senate, that is so unhealthy.”

Abortion will be the top issue for Shealy in the June 25 runoff.

According to reports, her district is already plastered with billboards warning voters that “Shealy is not pro-life.”

Even if she pulls off a victory, she is still experiencing election pain for her refusal to stand for the sanctity of life.

And two of her colleagues have already gone down to defeat.

This is what happens when pro-life Americans turn out to vote.

And it should be an encouraging sign for those who feel like fighting back at this point is hopeless.
