Grand Strand Citizens for Life (GSCL) was founded in 1984 and incorporated in 1985 as a non-profit citizen group formed to promote a public recognition of the dignity and right to life of every individual from the time of conception to natural death. To foster a respect for human rights as a matter of social justice, GSCL’s membership, led by its Board of Directors, encourages an appreciation of family as a fundamental institution of society. We seek to educate the public on the problems of abortion, child abuse, human (fetal) experimentation, human cloning, infanticide, euthanasia, assisted suicide & related subjects.


Through letters, publications, advertising & other materials, respect life information is distributed to our members & to the public. Individual members carry the pro-life message to interested individuals and groups.

In addition to our educational focus, we also partner with the local agencies that provide life affirming pregnancy counseling, ultra sound, and material support for the mother. We aid Birthright of Georgetown and Coastline Women’s Center and Lifeline Children Services. All services are offered without regard to race, religion, legal residency, marital or economic status.


Grand Strand Citizens for Life is committed to work peacefully for an end to abortions & for a genuine respect for all human life. We support the South Carolina Citizens for Life annual Pro-Life Rally and Prolife Dinner in Columbia, South Carolina by providing transportation to & from the Rally. Our annual Pro-life Interfaith Prayer Vigil is held in January of each year to memorialize the millions of unborn children killed since the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe Vs Wade decision which has resulted in some 64,000,000 (64 million) reported abortions through 2020. The annual Prayer Vigil is held each year at a different participating church along the Grand Strand & features prayers offered from ministers of many different denominations.
