Last week, Kansas passed a ban on dismemberment abortion —this week its neighbor to the south, Oklahoma, followed suit. On Monday, Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin signed the Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act, which passed the state House 84 to 2, and the state Senate 37 to 4. The law takes effect November 1.
The law makes dismemberment abortions illegal. These abortions, which are dilation and evacuation abortions (D&E), are performed in the second trimester. As National Right to Life notes, these abortions are extremely gruesome:
“Dismemberment abortions are as brutal as the partial-birth abortion method, which is now illegal in the United States.”
In Oklahoma, preborn babies will no longer be brutally killed in this manner. Similar legislation in Kansas has sparked national debate over the violence of dismemberment abortion procedures.
