Nebraska introduces bill to ban dismemberment abortions

Earlier this year, Kansas and Oklahoma passed bans on dismemberment abortions, which involve exactly what you would expect when you think of the term “dismemberment.” Nebraska legislators are now proposing a bill that would ban the brutal practice in their state, reports Life News.

Although many pro-aborts object to the term “dismemberment abortion,” it is a perfectly accurate description of the procedure. National Right to Life Director of State Legislation Mary Spaulding Balch, J.D. says lawmakers must act:

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.

Julie Schmit-Albin, Executive Director of Nebraska Right to Life, said undercover videos released by The Center for Medical Progress have helped to educate the American public on the truly inhumane and disturbing practices that take place in many abortion clinics, including those associated with Planned Parenthood. People are starting to realize the brutal nature of abortion practices.

According to the Journal Star, “Nebraska became the first state in the nation to ban most abortions beginning at 20 weeks” in 2010. This was “based on the theory that by that point, a fetus has the capacity to feel pain.”

The new law could ban D&E abortions beginning at twelve weeks gestation.
