Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today praised the Ohio Senate for overwhelmingly passing a bill to protect unborn babies from dismemberment abortions.

“The Ohio Senate has taken action to stop what is nothing less than the brutal torture of babies in the womb,” said Fr. Pavone. “There is no way for the abortion lobby to sugar coat dismemberment abortion – ripping the arms, legs, and head from a living person’s body is unspeakably cruel and sadistic. No civilized society should tolerate it.”

Ohio’s State Senate voted 24 to 9 to approve and send to the State House S.B. 145, a bill that would stop abortions where cutting and grasping tools are used to dismember unborn babies, after which the children’s severed body parts are removed, piece by piece, from their mothers. The House is expected to consider the bill in the fall when the Ohio legislature returns from its summer recess.

“The abortion lobby hates bills like Ohio’s anti-dismemberment legislation because such measures expose what abortion really is,” added Fr. Pavone. “Abortion is not health care. It’s barbarism. And the sooner America hears or sees what abortion entails, the sooner America will reject it.”

Priests for Life is making a major priority out of promoting these protective laws across the nation, and challenging candidates for public office both on the state and federal levels to state clearly their position as to whether the law should allow babies to be dismembered. Fr. Pavone concluded, “All Ohio residents, before casting a vote, should know where candidates stand on this fundamental question.”

Fr. Frank Pavone Praises West Virginia Legislature for Protecting Babies from Dismemberment Abortions

NEW YORK – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today praised the West Virginia legislature for approving legislation to protect unborn babies from dismemberment abortions.

“West Virginia legislators have made their state and the world a less barbaric place with the passage of this measure,” said Fr. Pavone. “For the law to allow, as it currently does, an unborn child of any age to have his or her body forcibly torn into pieces is a denial of the very purpose of law. With the adoption of this bill safeguarding babies in the womb from dismemberment, the law is one step closer to becoming less inhumane.”

West Virginia’s House of Delegates voted 86 to 13 to approve a Senate-passed measure that would protect children from dismemberment abortions which are performed by pulling on an unborn child’s head and extremities until they are amputated from his or her torso. The bill now goes to Governor Earl Ray Tomblin, who last year saw his veto of the state’s Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act overridden by the legislature.

“The choice is now Governor Tomblin’s,” added Fr. Pavone. “Does he want to be on the side of humanity and compassion and sign this bill or on the side of those who make their living taking lives? If he’s smart, he’ll sign this bill.”

Priests for Life is helping to lead efforts nationally to advance Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion bills. Priests for Life gave an award to Kansas Governor Sam Brownback at the March for Life in D.C. in January because he was the first governor to sign such a measure.

NEW YORK – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today lauded Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin for signing into law a measure to protect unborn babies from dismemberment abortions.

“There really are no words to describe the depravity involved in dismemberment abortions,” said Fr. Pavone. “That is why Priests for Life has been advocating for over a decade that states begin to protect children from this procedure. We are delighted that legislators like those in Oklahoma, and governors like Mary Fallin, are doing precisely that. It is a key priority of our organization to help more states do the same.”

Fr. Frank Pavone Urges Oklahoma Governor Fallin to Sign Bill Barring Dismemberment Abortions

Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today applauded the Oklahoma legislature’s passage of legislation to protect unborn babies from dismemberment abortions.

“Oklahoma’s bill makes it illegal to ‘slice, crush, and/or grasp a portion of the unborn child’s body to cut or rip it off.’ This is graphic and gruesome language, but that’s because it accurately and objectively describes a dismemberment abortion,” said Fr. Pavone. “The abortion lobby hates bills like this because the abortion lobby works day and night to try to hide the truth about what happens to the children they kill.”

Oklahoma’s legislature became the second in the nation to pass a bill to bar procedures where an abortionist uses clamps, tongs, scissors, and/or other instruments to sever a baby into pieces and then remove the child piece by piece from his mother. Kansas enacted the first such law earlier this week.

“I have had the joy of addressing the Oklahoma state legislature in the past, and this praiseworthy action does not surprise me, given the quality of those who serve there,” added Fr. Pavone. “Governor Mary Fallin has a solid record of protecting the lives of those she serves. I urge her to continue to further the Culture of Life by signing this humane and groundbreaking legislation.”
