85th #TXLEGE: Dismemberment Abortion ban filed today....


"And they built the high places of Baal which are in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire to Molech, which I did not command them, nor did it come into My mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin."
Jeremiah 32:35

Dismemberment abortion is a particularly gruesome form of partial birth abortion whose occurrence in Texas was brought to light two summers ago; via Texas Right to Life:
Austin, Texas—January 5, 2017: State Senator Charles Perry (R-Lubbock) and Representative Stephanie Klick (R-Fort Worth) filed the major Pro-Life bill for the 85th Session of the Texas Legislature, the Dismemberment Abortion Ban. Senator Perry and Representative Klick have both achieved high rankings as Pro-Life legislators and are capable bill authors. The legislation will ban the torturous practice of dismemberment abortion, a procedure that ends the life of an unborn child by removing his or her limbs while his or her heart is still beating.

Texas Right to Life, the oldest and largest statewide Pro-Life organization in Texas, stands with Senator Perry and Representative Klick in prioritizing the Dismemberment Abortion Ban. Elizabeth Graham, Director of Texas Right to Life, insists that the Dismemberment Abortion Ban must reach the governor’s desk this year:


The Dismemberment Abortion Ban is the only Pro-Life measure filed that will actually stop abortion and protect pregnant women and their children. Other bills offer life-affirming nuances, but SB 415 and the companion, HB 844, directly save lives while addressing the criminal activity of the abortion industry documented over the last two years.

....

When the Dismemberment Abortion Ban measure was overwhelmingly adopted in the 2016 Republican Party Platform, Pro-Lifers and activists signaled to statewide leadership that they will not be satisfied with symbolic “life”-sounding legislation that regulates what happens to the victims of abortion after their deaths. Further, this ban earned the most support among the Pro-Life policy planks when delegates to the Republican Convention voted plank by plank.
 Kudos to Charles Perry and Stephanie Klick, read the whole thing here.
