Palmetto Opinion

Every South Carolinian deserves to be counted

As a state senator, I took an oath to represent all of my constituents to the best of my ability. I know that politics can be divisive, and not everyone will agree with my ideas or what I think are the best solutions to keep our community moving forward. But I have a responsibility to serve all of my constituents.

Before Rosa Parks, there was SC’s Sara Mae Flemming

At the 60th anniversary of the brave bus ride of Rosa Parks in Birmingham, Ala., some have said her case marked the beginning of the Civil Rights Movement in this country. I beg to differ. While Rosa Parks deserves to be honored, there was an earlier and similar case here in South Carolina, handled by Matthew Perry and his partner, Lincoln Jenkins.

STATE HEALTH inspectors swooped in on three abortion clinics this fall, making unscheduled inspections that turned up regulatory violations and resulted in suspended licenses and fines that are still being negotiated. The most frequently mentioned violations involved paperwork problems and aborted fetuses being sterilized with steam rather than incinerated.
