Urge Governor Tom Wolf to ban dismemberment abortion in Pennsylvania!
Pennsylvania senators have just approved SB 3 which would ban late term dismemberment abortions in Pennsylvania. This bill is now being sent to the Governor’s desk.
Governor Wolf has voiced opposition to SB 3. Please sign this petition urging Governor Wolf to sign SB 3 and ban late term abortions in Pennsylvania!
This legislation bans abortion abortions after 20 weeks and limits the use of dilation and evacuation. “Dilation and Evacuation” or D&E is the most common second-trimester abortion procedure in the United States. “D&E” is a nice vague term for what is likely the most barbaric practice in America—doctors literally rip unborn babies apart, limb-from-limb, and then pull their body parts out of the womb.
Planned Parenthood defenders of dismemberment abortion describe it as using “surgical instruments…to remove material from the women.” But what is that “material” the doctor is removing? It is a living human baby that the doctor has just killed by tearing her limbs from her body, ripping her torso in half, and crushing her skull. That baby has the same human rights to not have her limbs, organs, skull, and brains torn apart as any other human person does!
Pro-abortion advocates—usually people who claim to support science—do everything they can to hide the scientific facts of dismemberment abortions from the mothers who fall victim to their rhetoric. Even Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy—a favorite of many liberals for his gay marriage decisions—has recognized the undeniable fact of what happens during “D&E” procedures. “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.” Stenberg v. Carhart, 530 U.S. 914, 958–59 (2000) (Kennedy, J., dissenting) (emphasis added).
By the second trimester, babies in the womb are listening to their mother’s voice, doing summersaults, and sucking their thumb. These are precious little babies who can feel incredible pain.
SB 3 is a much-needed bill. But incredibly, the Governor has voiced strong opposition.
"Senate Bill 3 is a particularly vile assault on a woman's right to make her own medical decisions. I'll veto any effort to restrict the rights of women to make their own health care decisions,” said Governor Wolf.
Tom Shaheen, Vice President for Policy of Pennsylvania Family Institute, has stated, “Governor Wolf is putting his extreme abortion views on full display. Not only is he disagreeing with this sensible legislation but he has been campaigning for Pennsylvania’s leading abortion business – Planned Parenthood – a group that opposes any sensible updates to abortion limits. While Planned Parenthood is spending record amounts of political money on behalf of Governor Wolf, he is touring their abortion businesses and hosting panel discussions in their favor. It’s a shame that’s the case for Pennsylvania families.”
Let’s tell Governor Wolf that he had better start paying attention to the Pro-Life Lobby, because we are a force to be reckoned with. Let’s stand up for these vulnerable little babies. Please urge the Governor to sign SB 3 now!
