Meet Josiah Magnuson, the man who wants government to control all South Carolinians with personhood bill
Columbia — The 2019 legislative session is upon us and it is not good news at all for anyone who cares about liberty.
Already, a Campobello Republican, Josiah Magnuson, prefiled a bill that would basically turn pregnant people into the property of the state of South Carolina.
Speaking to the Spartanburg GOP earlier this month, he said, “The Personhood Act will define life at conception so that all humans are protected under state law, regardless of age.”
The bill would, much like Ohio’s recently vetoed bill, prosecute women for having abortions and miscarriages.
As Vicki Ringer tweeted, there are a quartet of Dems cosponsoring this unconstitutional bill.
Help us persuade these guys that respecting women’s reproductive rights is a fundamental Democratic principle. The renegades are @IvoryThigpen of Columbia, Coach Jackie Hayes of Dillon, Lucas Atkinson of Marion, and Will Wheeler of Bishopville.

What part of get the government out of women’s lives do these arrogant politicians like Magnuson not understand?
What part of “Stop the Bans” do South Carolina politicians not get?
When will people who can not get pregnant stop trying to dictate pregnant people’s lives?
Pregnant people’s lives matter far more than that of a fetus. And furthermore, South Carolina was recently named the Worst State to Be a Woman.
Yes. The Worst State to Be a Woman due to anti-choice laws like this one.
These busybodies need to mind their own business. Kill this bill in the upcoming session on January 8, 2019!
