The Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act SB 10/HB 4004

  • This bill would outlaw a form of abortion defined as “purposely to dismember a living unborn child and extract him or her one piece at a time from the uterus.”
  • Dismemberment abortions are performed between 14 and 24 weeks and are the most common form of abortion used in the second trimester (96% of abortions done).
  • Every year approximately 100,000 unborn babies die from abortions after the first trimester and most of these are Dismemberment Abortions.
  • This is the method of abortion used by the Planned Parenthood abortionists to harvest baby body parts as described in the recently-released undercover videos.
  • Second trimester babies are fully formed with all organs in place. Teeth, fingernails and fingerprints are present. The heart has been beating, pumping the baby’s own blood type. Brain waves can be recorded, and babies can kick, swim and grasp objects placed in their hands. After 20 weeks, the unborn baby can feel the pain of the abortion.
  • Contact your senators here and your delegates here simply by looking for your county. Tell them to support The Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act SB 10/HB 4004.

This bill has NOT been found to be unconstitutional!

Regarding the Kansas law:
   “Some reports dealing with Kansas’ recent court decision regarding their law dealing with dismemberment abortions have been confusing and inaccurate.
   The law was not declared unconstitutional. Rather seven members of the 14 member Kansas State Court of Appeals sided with the trial judge’s finding that the Kansas Constitution contained a so-called ‘right to abortion’ and that the law protecting fully formed living unborn children from being killed by dismemberment abortion was probably unconstitutional. They therefore said the trial judge was correct in issuing the temporary injunction.
   Since a tie vote upholds the lower court’s decision, this action simply means that the law will not be in effect while the trial is pending. Thus, it is important to remember that seven members –half– of the Kansas State Court of Appeals disagreed with the result.”
   The state now must put on its case as to why the Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act is, in fact, constitutional. Without knowing the arguments involved, it is impossible to predict the outcome of the trial.”
                 – Mary Balch, J.D., National Right to Life Director of State Legislation
