Partial Birth Abortion Bans
Partial-birth abortion is a horrific method of abortion that kills babies before they are pulled feet-first from the womb and stabbed through the back of the skull. Often these abortions are performed on very developed babies in the fifth and six or later months of pregnancy when these babies have the ability to feel excruciating pain. Congress passed the federal Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act. Below are the states that have enacted a state Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act.

Dismemberment abortion is a brutal type of abortion with the purpose of causing the death of an unborn child, purposely to dismember a living unborn child and extract him or her one piece at a time from the uterus through use of clamps, grasping forceps, tongs, scissors or similar instruments that, through the convergence of two rigid levers, slice, crush, and /or grasp a portion of the unborn child’s body to cut or rip it off. The Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act protects unborn children from the brutality of being torn apart limb by limb by dismemberment.
