A federal court ruled on Monday that South Carolina’s pro-life Heartbeat Bill can go into effect thanks to the Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization overturning Roe v. Wade . Because of that ruling, an injunction preventing the law from taking effect has been removed.
The Fetal Heartbeat and Protection from Abortion Act restricts abortion beginning when a child’s heartbeat can be detected at about six weeks, though the human heart begins beating about 16-22 days after fertilization. It was passed in 2021 and states that doctors must use an ultrasound to search for a preborn child’s heartbeat prior to committing an abortion. If a heartbeat is detected , an abortion can only be carried out if the woman’s life is in danger or if the baby was conceived in rape or incest (in which case it cannot take place past 20 weeks).
After Governor Henry McMaster signed the bill in February 2021, Planned Parenthood immediately sued to block it. South Carolina can now enforce its ban on most abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected (after ~6 weeks), with a federal judge just staying the injunction on the Fetal Heartbeat Law. The law had been blocked by courts since right after Gov. McMaster signed it last year. pic.twitter.com/5bXHWMZ9pq — Mary Green (@MaryGreenNews) June 27, 2022 “The Heartbeat Law is now in effect,” said South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson in a statement. “Once Roe v. Wade was overturned by the Supreme Court, the decision on legally protecting the lives of unborn babies was returned to the states, so there was no longer any basis for blocking South Carolina’s Heartbeat Law.
“Our state is now carrying out a government’s most sacred and fundamental duty, protecting life.”
Likewise, Gov. McMaster tweeted , “We’ve spent nearly a year and a half […]

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
