Alabama governor signs dismemberment abortion ban into law

Requests for this procedure at Planned Parenthood were sent to the top of the queue.

On Thursday, Alabama Governor Robert Bentley signed a ban on second trimester D&E abortions into law, making Alabama the fifth state to ban the gruesome procedure.

As Live Action News reported, a ban on D&E abortions, also known as dismemberment abortions, passed the Alabama Senate with an overwhelming majority as it passed through the state legislature.

Former abortionist, Dr. Anthony Levatino, explains the process of dismemberment abortions in the following video.

In his dissent to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Stenberg v. Carhart, Justice Anthony Kennedy argued that during dismemberment abortions, “The fetus, in many cases, dies just as a human adult or child would: It bleeds to death as it is torn limb from limb. The fetus can be alive at the beginning of the dismemberment process and can survive for a time while its limbs are being torn off.”

National Right to Life Director of State Legislation Mary Spaulding Balch, J.D., explains:

Dismemberment abortion kills a baby by tearing her apart limb from limb.Before the first trimester ends, the unborn child has a beating heart, brain waves, and every organ system in place. Dismemberment abortions occur after the baby has reached these milestones…

When abortion textbooks describe in cold, explicit detail exactly how to kill a human being by ripping off arms and legs piece by piece, civilized members of society have no choice but to stand up and demand a change.
