Mississippi is aiming to ban Dismemberment Abortions, abortions performed by literally ripping apart unborn babies limb from limb in utero.
A bill to ban dismemberment abortions has been approved by the Mississippi State House of Representatives. House Bill 519 was passed Thursday on a vote of 83-33. The legislation is authored by Rep. Sam Mims, R-McComb.
Dismemberment abortion, performed on a fully-formed, living unborn baby, is a barbaric and dangerous procedure in which the unborn child is literally ripped apart in the womb and pulled out in pieces. As stated by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy in Stenberg vs. Carhart, “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.”
The Mississippi Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act would end such dangerous procedures in our state.
