MICHIGAN BILL AIMS TO BAN DISMEMBERMENT ABORTION

Michigan Bill Aims To Ban Dismemberment Abortion

LANSING, MI, August 24, 2015 ( LIFESITE NEWS ) The Michigan state legislature is slated to consider a bill banning fetal dismemberment.

Michigan state Representative Laura Cox introduced a bill that will ban the grizzly but all-too-routine practice of dismemberment abortion.  “This appalling practice has allowed doctors to dismember and kill human beings, and it cannot continue,” the Livonia Republican said.

The two-bill package is an addendum to Michigan’s law banning Partial-Birth Abortion, a form of infanticide.  To the “Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act” it adds “Partial-Birth And Dismemberment Abortion Ban Act.”

The bills define “dismemberment abortion” as using “any instrument, device, or object to dismember a living fetus by disarticulating limbs or decapitating the head from the fetal torso and removing the dismembered fetal body parts from the uterus.”

“This barbaric procedure killed more than 1,700 Michigan babies in 2014,” Genevieve Marnon, public affairs associate for Right to Life of Michigan told LifeSiteNews.  “There is no way to consider this as legitimate medicine.”

“We strongly support this legislation to end this crime against humanity,” Ms. Marnon told LifeSiteNews.

Rep. Cox and Right to Life of Michigan were already collaborating on a Michigan bill similar to laws passed in Kansas and Oklahoma earlier this year when the shocking videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s involvement in aborted baby organ trafficking.

“The video brutally describing how Planned Parenthood’s abortionists purposely dismember babies to maximize organ harvesting only highlights the need for this bill,” added Marnon.

House Bill 4833 adds an exception “if in the physician’s reasonable medical judgment a partial-birth abortion or dismemberment abortion is necessary to save the life of a mother whose life is endangered by a physical disorder, physical illness, or physical injury.”

It also adds that the woman seeking abortion is not to be held liable in any way.

House Bill 4834 adds “dismemberment abortion” to Michigan’s penal code regarding Partial-Birth Abortion, with a possible maximum sentence of two years.

The bill makes dismemberment abortion a crime for any doctor or abortionist in Michigan.  “Criminal offenses for killing a living fetus through torture should be implemented,” Rep. Cox explained. “This gruesome procedure is unethical, immoral and will no longer be tolerated in Michigan.”

The bill package has been referred to the Committee on Criminal Justice for further consideration.

“On the ultrasound screen, I could see the heart beating . . . the baby’s little fingers were clasping and unclasping, and his little feet were kicking. Then the doctor stuck the scissors in the back of his head, and the baby’s arms jerked out, like a startle reaction, like a flinch, like a baby does when he thinks he is going to fall.”

SHAME ON YOU Rep. Jackie Walorski & Rep. Renee Ellmers: The House GOP Women Who Abandoned Pro-Life Community on Late-Term Abortion!

The House GOP Women Who Abandoned Pro­Life Community on Late­ Term Abortion

In November, the voters handed Republicans an overwhelming majority in the House of
Representatives­­ the largest, in fact, since 1929.
Forget the days of Nancy Pelosi. The new GOP majority has
the power and support of the American people to stand for
what they were elected to do—and they cannot uphold even
“But someone must have forgotten to tell the Republicans.
On Monday, Republican leadership announced that the House would vote on a pro-­life bill banning
abortion after 20 weeks—the point in the pregnancy when the baby can feel pain. The vote was set
for Thursday, January 22, the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision to legalize abortion and
the same day that hundreds of thousands of pro­life activists descend on the Mall for the annual
March for Life.
As news of the bill spread, so did its opposition. However, this time the opposition wasn’t led by
liberal Democrats—but by Republican members. The women leading the effort to kill this bill? Rep.
Jackie Walorski (R­IN) and Rep. Renee Ellmers (R­NC)—the same Renee Ellmers who was the
only Republican to vote against deporting illegal immigrant sex offenders last week.
The result of this GOP ­led pro­-choice temper tantrum was the same as usual: leadership caved. In a
stunning display of cowardice and capitulation, they pulled the bill from the floor in the eleventh
hour.
Forget the days of Nancy Pelosi. The new GOP majority has the power and support of the American
people to stand for what they were elected to do—and they cannot uphold even the most
fundamental Republican principle: protect life. Protect those who cannot protect themselves.
This spectacular capitulation makes GOP leadership complicit in this latest act of Republican
heresy. John Boehner, who likes to call himself “the most pro-­life Speaker in history,” sat on the
sidelines and did nothing. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R­WA), the only woman in leadership and
chair of the messaging arm of the conference, was painfully silent. And yet, she is scheduled to
speak at the March for Life rally on Thursday. Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R­LA) said he
declined to whip members in favor of this vote because it was, he claimed, a “vote of conscience.”
And the GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy (R­CA) bailed last minute on his speech at a pro-­life event
Wednesday night. We have to ask: How is this vote of conscience different from any other policy
vote congressional members vote on?
In a typical political pivot, Walorski, followed by Ellmers, reversed gears Wednesday night
withdrawing their opposition to the 20­week ban in Facebook posts, after drawing criticism from prolife
leaders and groups.

”Cowardice and capitulation on the part of Republican leadership is nothing new. But this
abandonment of Republican’s core values is a slap in the face to the millions of Americans who
pulled the lever for Republicans this past fall.
Voters gave Republicans a commanding majority because they want a change from Obama’s
blatantly liberal policies over the past six years. But if Republicans, with a commanding governing
majority, cannot put a bill on the floor that bans late ­term abortions, then what is the point of the
majority?
