KS Gov. Brownback signs first-in-nation dismemberment abortion ban

TOPEKA, Kan., April 7, 2015 /Christian Newswire --

This morning, Gov. Sam Brownback signed into law the historic "Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act," SB 95. It will go into effect July 1.

Gov. Brownback commented, "This is a horrific procedure and we are pleased to ban it in Kansas and we hope it will be banned nationally."

To commemorate this ground-breaking and first-in-the-nation measure, Gov. Brownback will travel across Kansas for ceremonial signings of the bill on April 28. (Locations will be announced in the near future.)

The Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act generated immediate grassroots support after introduction in January by lead sponsor, Sen. Garrett Love (R-Montezuma), who remarked, "In visiting with my constituents, many have been stunned that this practice (dismemberment) is going on in Kansas and have demanded that it be stopped."

Records released on April 1 by the Kansas Health & Environment Dept. show that in 2014 this D&E method was used in 637 abortions, or 8.8% of the total 7,263 Kansas abortions reported.

SB 95 bans a particularly gruesome abortion method in which a living unborn child in her mother's womb is ripped apart into pieces by an abortionist using sharp metal tools.

Abortionist LeRoy Carhart testified under oath that the unborn child is alive because he is watching him/her on ultrasound during the procedure.

In the words of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, the unborn child in a D&E/ Dismemberment abortion, "dies just as a human adult or child would: It bleeds to death as it is torn limb from limb."

Testimony provided by Kansans for Life emphasized that the U.S. Supreme Court upheld a ban on the partial-birth method of abortion in 2007 after two cases, Stenberg v Carhart and Gonzales v Carhart.

In both cases, the Court closely examined both the partial-birth and D&E/ Dismemberment abortion methods and found them to be "brutal." The Court noted:

"[it's] necessary at the outset to set forth what may happen during an abortion." ... and, "States also have an interest in forbidding medical procedures which, in the State's reasonable determination, might cause the medical profession or society as a whole to become insensitive, even disdainful, to life, including life in the human fetus." Stenberg, 958 & 961

On March 25, the House overwhelmingly passed SB 95 by 98-26 after the Senate had easily passed the measure, 31-9, on Feb 20. (See kansansforlife.wordpress.com for more information.)
