In the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, several States including South Carolina have closed down what are classified as non-essential businesses.  These businesses are covered in Governor McMaster’s Executive Order as:

1. Entertainment venues and facilities

  • Night clubs
  • Bowling alleys
  • Arcades
  • Concert venues
  • Theaters, auditoriums and performing arts centers
  • Tourist attractions (including museums, aquariums and planetariums)
  • Racetracks
  • Indoor children’s play areas
  • Adult entertainment venues
  • Bingo halls
  • Venues operated by social clubs

2. Recreational and athletic facilities and activities

  • Fitness and exercise centers and commercial gyms
  • Spas and public or commercial swimming pools
  • Group exercise facilities (including yoga, barre and spin studios or facilities)
  • Spectator sports
  • Sports that involve interaction with another person in close proximity and within less than six (6) feet of another person
  • Activities that require the use of shared sporting apparatus and equipment
  • Activities on commercial or public playground equipment

3. Close-contact service providers

  • Barber shops
  • Hair salons
  • Waxing salons
  • Threading salons
  • Nail salons and spas
  • Body-art facilities and tattoo services
  • Tanning salons
  • Massage-therapy establishments and massage service
  1. Retail stores 
  • Furniture and home-furnishings stores
  • Clothing, shoe and clothing-accessory stores
  • Jewelry, luggage and leather goods stores
  • Department stores, with the exception of hardware and home-improvement stores
  • Sporting goods stores
  • Book, craft and music stores
  • Flea markets
  • Florists and flower stores
  • This does NOT prohibit the continued operation of retail stores, as set forth above, for the limited purpose of fulfilling online or telephone orders or providing alternate means of purchasing or delivering products or services – to include curbside purchase, pickup or delivery and home or off-site delivery – provided that such options or measures can be implemented in a manner that facilitates and maintains effective “social distancing” and is consistent with any applicable guidance issued by state and federal public health and safety officials.  

But now several Legislators and Pro-Life Grassroots Movements have issued a letter to Governor McMaster asking that he close down all Abortion Clinics and list them as “Non-Essential”, this included Planed Parenthood Clinics.

These Legislators, who signed this letter, have shown a true concern for their constituents and the citizens of South Carolina in their time of service as elected officials.  Many of these Legislators take on issues of constituents outside their distract because these individuals can not get assistance from their own elected officials.

Now it will be up to Governor McMaster to make a decision on this request or ignore it.
