Thank the Arkansas Governor for signing bill banning dismemberment abortions!
Arkansas has finally outlawed the inhumane practice of ripping an unborn baby apart in order to kill her. Let’s thank the Legislature and our Governor for taking this important step to stand up for the value of all human life!
Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson recently signed into law and bill that bans a type of abortion called “Dilation and Evacuation” or D&E. This 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.
But thanks to the Arkansas Unborn Child Protection From Dismemberment Abortion Act, this gruesome practice is now outlawed in our state!
Sadly, Arkansas is just the seventh state to pass such a ban, which means that 43 other states still allow this brutal practice! We should clearly applaud the courage it took for Arkansas to help lead the way in valuing all human life.
The new law makes D&E abortion a felony and punishes it by a $10,000 fine or six years in prison for any doctor who performs the “procedure.”
Of course, the corporation that makes the most money off of abortions, Planned Parenthood, objects to the new law: “The D&E method is the most common method of second-trimester abortion in the United States,” said Laura McQuade, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Great Plains.
But just because something is common doesn’t mean it should be acceptable. Indeed, sex slavery is still common in some parts of the world, but that doesn’t mean we should ever stop trying to end it! In the same way, we should not rest until we can make dismemberment abortions uncommon in our country!
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 plot. Even Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy—the 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).
Let’s stand up to (Pro-Abortion) Planned Parenthood and stand with Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson! We must protect the most vulnerable in our state from this gruesome procedure.
