Texas bans mutilating babies in abortion, selling their body parts

Texas Governor Greg Abbott
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed a law Tuesday protecting babies from dismemberment abortions, preventing aborted babies' bodies from being sold, and requiring that babies killed via abortion are buried or cremated rather than treated as medical waste.

Senate Bill 8, the Texas Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act, also makes partial-birth abortion illegal. A federal law aleady bans partial-birth abortion. The procedure involves delivering all of a live baby except her head and then stabbing scissors into the base of her skull, sucking her brains out, and then removing her head after it's been destroyed.
