Kansas Legislature Approves Groundbreaking Dismemberment Abortion Ban

The Kansas House of Representatives today approved, on a voice vote, the Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act, groundbreaking legislation that will prohibit brutal dilation & evacuation (D&E) dismemberment abortions in the state. The state Senate previously approved the bill, 31-9, in February. Pro-life Governor Sam Brownback (R) is expected to sign the bill, making Kansas the first state in the nation to enact the National Right to Life model legislation.

Sponsored by state Sen. Garrett Love (R-Montezuma), the Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act has been the top state legislative priority for National Right to Life and its affiliate, Kansans for Life (KFL). In announcing the bill at a press conference in January, KFL Legislative Director Kathy Ostrowski observed, “With the discussion about, and passage of this bill, the public will see that dismemberment abortions brutally – and unacceptably – rip apart small human beings who have all of their internal organs and who have perfectly formed fingers and toes.”
