The Brooks Motel on Morris Street was another place where blacks could feel safe. Martin Luther King stayed there and it was an important meeting place for the Charleston civil rights movement.

Re: “After passing 20-week abortion ban, S.C. lawmakers consider requiring fetal burial and cremation

The ACA is done in the private insurance market. Sex changes are not paid for by the government. Government funding for abortions is explicitly, statutorily illegal and has been for decades. So, yeah.

Re: “After passing 20-week abortion ban, S.C. lawmakers consider requiring fetal burial and cremation

"A bill currently being considered by the S.C. House of Representatives would require providers to arrange for the burial or cremation of fetal tissue following an abortion, adding another series of regulations and forcing providers to locate a funeral home that will associate with a clinic."

So, would this apply to women that simply have a miscarriage as well? What about very early term abortions, where it might well be difficult to even pick out what to cremate?

Why not spend some time helping those that have already been born? You know, be pro-life instead of just pro-birth?

Re: “After passing 20-week abortion ban, S.C. lawmakers consider requiring fetal burial and cremation

All WJH is saying is that the bozos in Columbia who voted this in actually really dislike small and medium sized children tremendously. The could care less about their little lives once born and find then pretty annoying and bothersome. These are the same clowns who allow a nationally disgraced and shameful foster care program to operate here in the fine state of SC. The foster care for the small ones of SC is so piss poor that child welfare advocates filed a class action lawsuit in early 2016 against South Carolina in Federal Court. The Federal court agrees it sucks to be a kid here in SC's foster care program. Trikki Haley acknowledged how bad it was in 2015 and said shes working on it. 2016 and Guess what? Still working on it. You know, shes got Volvo and others to suck up to and no time for those pesky snot nosed toddlers. So once this bill is passed and more unwanted little ones come into the world we ask that they be dropped off on the doorsteps of every nitwit that supported this bill and they can then say they support the bill and the kids. Wonder how many foster children Trikki and her Columbia crew have in their homes? Soon they should all have 9 to 10 kids per year easily. I expect to see everyone including the Trikster herself, supporting extended foster families of 20 or more kids by the end of 2017. Y'all lawmakers taking the talk now its time to walk the walk. Personally, I think abortion should be allowed up to 21 years instead of 20 weeks and in the case of SC politicians 70 years.

wjhamilton: Have you ever heard of the term "flight of ideas"? I would imagine some time you thought your ideas would "matter". But trying to figure out what the hell you are saying is most difficult.

Maybe one day, actual walking/talking children will be as valuable to republicans as a cluster of cells incapable of living outside the womb.

Maybe one day, republicans will stop punishing women for being pregnant.

Maybe one day, small-government advocates will stop legislating personal matters.

I look forward to the day when, you know, doctors can actually influence health policy instead of our current stable of theocratic ideologues.

Re: “After passing 20-week abortion ban, S.C. lawmakers consider requiring fetal burial and cremation

I'm looking forward to the bills to provide children with healthcare, better education and improved child protective services they're going to pass to help children who are walking around, breathing and feeling a lot of pain. From what I can tell most of these people don't care about a human being after they are born until they join the military. They matter while they're in the military. They sometimes matter after they die in combat and veterans matter some of the time.

Re: “Charleston Nine families get $1.8M from Sofa Super Store

Well said "Word". These firefighters were advised that there were employees trapped inside the business. These firefighters were doing their jobs. They were risking their lives in an attempt to save others. They were not "big kids who wanted to splash in puddles and then sue when their shoes and pant legs got wet". I am appalled that someone would make remarks such as yours, especially knowing how 9 brave men lost their lives. Tell me, would you still make such an asinine remark had any of the lost firefighters been a part of your family? These men, in addition to firefighters, were also at least one of the following: Veterans, sons, brothers, husbands, fathers, grandfathers, cousins, nephews, friends, and trustworthy pillars of the community. No. They were not "big kids who wanted to splash in puddles and then sue when their shoes and pants legs got wet". They were firefighters and died answering the call that people were in danger, and a massive fire was growing out of control by the minute. The business owner was found at fault and many policies and procedures were put into place as a result. Any lawsuits that were filed and eventually settled were not enough. Check the facts before showing your ignorance.

Re: “Lowcountry school boards face school closings and transgender debate

Dot Scott: You are wrong. It is not a two hour drive to Wando from McClellanville. Many kids these days are spending 45 minutes one way, and 45 minutes home every day to ride the bus. If your Mommy has the van, then she'll come and wait on you. So isn't it worth a little more time commuting to be able to achieve a better education than the one your are getting in that tiny school with minimal chances for advanced classes, better athletic teams, and an overall better education? The money is just not there, and all your bitching and moaning and demanding will achieve nothing. The school is going to close, so get used to it. And now you won't have to build more bathrooms for the transgender kids, either.
