URGENT: Bill to Ban Dismemberment Abortions Headed to Governor Tomblin
A bill to ban dismemberment abortions in West Virginia has made it through the legislature and been strongly supported by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle. The “West Virginia Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act, SB 10,” is now headed to Governor Tomblin’s desk to approval after passing through the legislature with a 86-13 vote of approval.
The problem is that Governor Tomblin has already shown his lack of support for pro-life laws. Tomblin vetoed a bill to make abortion on unborn children over 20 weeks illegal. Thankfully the legislature over-rode his veto and the bill became law. What Tomblin will do with this new bill designed to further strengthen West Virginia’s defense of the unborn is anyone’s guess.
A recent article carried comments from supporters of the bill from across the state. Each comment recognizes the humanity of the unborn and the absolute barbarity of allowing an unborn child to be torn limb from limb in the womb. The reality that such a procedure is legal anywhere in the world reflects the evil profit for murder mentality that is so pervasive in the abortion industry.
Defenders of the bill said:
“Dismembering a living, unborn child in the womb so that she bleeds to death is so horrific that it should be outlawed,” said West Virginians for Life President Wanda Franz. “West Virginians can indicate their support for this law by contacting their legislators and asking them to vote for SB 10.”
“We have laws that protect dogs and cats,” said George Wallace, who heads the Cabell County chapter of West Virginians for Life. “We have humans here that are being butchered.”
“I think it’s actually a very good bill,” said the Rev. Brian O’Donnell, executive secretary of the Catholic Conference of West Virginia. “It really expresses what’s in the hearts and minds of the vast majority of West Virginians.”
This is our opportunity as West Virginian’s to stand up for the unborn and defend the most vulnerable among us. I urge you to please contact Governor Tomblin and let him know that you support SB 10 and that you want him to sign the bill into law. You can contact Governor Tomblin here.
