Indiana House Panel Passes Bill Banning Dismemberment Abortions Tearing Off Babies’ Limbs

February 19, 2019

Indiana House lawmakers moved forward Monday with a bill to ban one of the most brutal abortion methods in their state.

The Statehouse File reports the Indiana House Public Policy committee voted 9-4 to advance state House Bill 1211 to ban dismemberment abortions.

Sponsored by state Rep. Peggy Mayfield, the bill would allow abortionists to be charged with a felony if they abort an unborn baby by tearing the baby limb from limb while their heart is beating. These types of abortion procedures are common in the second trimester when unborn babies are nearly fully formed.

“Like the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban, this legislation aims to prohibit an inhumane practice that brutalizes the body of an unborn child,” according to Indiana Right to Life.

“This legislation would prohibit dilation and evacuation abortions, a procedure in which the abortionist first dilates the woman’s cervix and then uses steel instruments to dismember and extract the baby from the uterus. The D&E abortion procedure is usually performed between thirteen and twenty-four weeks LMP. Sadly, these are happening in Indiana,” the group continued.

Here’s more from the local news:

Those against HB 1211, including representatives for Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, said the term “dismemberment” is not a medical definition and is instead a word used to invoke fear in the public.

The procedure is formally called a Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) and remains among the rarest abortion procedures. Of the 7,778 abortions performed in Indiana in 2017, according to the state department of health, 0.35 percent were D&E procedures.

Members of Indiana Right to Life and National Right to Life, also present at last week’s hearing, hold that D&E procedures are nothing less than “barbaric” and an injustice to an unborn fetus.

Several other states already have passed laws to protect unborn babies from being ripped apart in their mothers’ wombs. Alabama and Kentucky are in legal battles with the abortion industry to defend their laws.

Dismemberment abortion is a procedure in which the abortionist first dilates the woman’s cervix and then uses steel instruments to dismember and extract the baby from the uterus. The procedure is usually performed between 11 and 24 weeks LMP, when the baby is somewhere between the size of a lemon and a cantaloupe.

By 11 weeks, unborn babies already have fingers and toes, heartbeats and detectable brain waves. They can respond to touch, yawn, suck their thumbs and even show signs of being right or left handed.

The Dismemberment Abortion Ban is built in part on the U.S. Supreme Court precedent set in Gonzales v. Carhart (2007), which upheld the federal Partial-Birth Abortion Ban and scaled back the scope of Roe v. Wade. In its opinion, former Justice Anthony Kennedy, a swing vote on abortion, described what occurs in a D&E abortion: “[F]riction causes the fetus to tear apart. For example, a leg might be ripped off the fetus… No one would dispute that for many, D&E is a procedure itself laden with the power to devalue human life.”

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
