surgical instrumentsAnother state is considering a bill that could make it to the Supreme Court where the nine justices will be asked to uphold a ban on dismemberment abortions.

Although lawmakers had to override a governor veto, West Virginia has already passed a law to ban abortions at 20 weeks, a point at which most medical experts are sure the baby experiences pain. Now, a bill is being introduced to ban dismemberment abortions in the state.

Wanda Franz of West Virginians for Life explains the reason for trying to outlaw this particular form of abortion.

“Dismemberment abortions are a particularly heinous form of abortion,” she says. “They involve tearing the living human child apart, limb by limb. The baby bleeds to death, and the parts of the body are individually removed from the womb.”

The abortionists could inject the baby through the womb, causing it to die before the abortion takes place, but Franz tells OneNewsNow that's usually not done. Instead, she says, the child is sentenced to a painful death.

“In addition to that, the medication that's used, the Dioxin, the poisons that are used, actually render those tissues incapable of being harvested for use in research,” she says. 

Consequently, she says, organizations such as Planned Parenthood would not be able sell the dissected babies to labs to generate more revenue.

Kansas and Oklahoma passed dismemberment bans which are tied up in court. If passed in West Virginia, a lawsuit is possible; but based on prior Supreme Court rulings, Franz believes the high court just might deliver an opinion in agreement with the measure.
