South Carolina House Votes to Ban 'Dismemberment' Abortions

In a landslide vote, the South Carolina House of Representatives has decided to ban dismemberment abortions. The vote of 89-17, the South Carolina House of Representatives passed the Unborn Child Protection Against Dismemberment Abortion Act (H 3548), reports LifeNews. 

During the lengthy debate, freshman Republican Lin Bennett of Charleston, the bill’s chief sponsor, asked House members, “What kind of people have we become that this procedure is even a matter for debate?” 

She said “It is mind-boggling that we are even debating this issue — that we have to argue about the legality of an abortionist using clamps, grasping forceps, tongs, scissors or similar instruments that, through the convergence of two rigid levers — slices, crushes, and grasps a portion of the living — living — unborn child’s body to cut or rip it off so that she bleeds to death in her mother’s womb.”
