Alabama has become the fifth state to protect unborn children from being dismembered in the womb, as Governor Robert Bentley signed the “Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act” (S.B. 363) today.
The new law bans dismemberment, formally known as dilation and evacuation (or “D & E”) abortion, which accounts for 96 percent of all second-trimester abortions.
Alabama Citizens for Life National Director Cheryl Ciamarra said the new law will end a “barbaric inhumanity in our state.”
Dr. Anthony Levatino, a former abortionist who performed more than 1,200 abortions during his career, described the grisly procedure in a viral video, as well as heartrending Congressional testimony.
While performing the abortion, he would tear a child limb-from-limb, removing the larger limbs before having to “reach in again and again with that clamp and tear out the spine, intestines, heart, and lungs.” (Read more from “Alabama Becomes Fifth State to Ban Dismemberment Abortions” HERE)
