A legal battle continues over a ban against dismemberment abortion in Oklahoma.
Last week, Oklahoma County District Judge Cindy Truong ruled in favor of the state’s effort to ban dismemberment abortion. The case was brought by Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR), working on behalf of an abortion facility in Tulsa….
Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life, says dismemberment abortion is the most common type of abortion used on unborn babies who have grown beyond the first trimester.
“And they just don’t want any law that will protect babies to stand,” Tobias says of CRR and its attorneys who frequently challenge pro-life laws.
Twelve states have passed laws banning the dismemberment method, which Tobias calls “gruesome” because the unborn babies can feel pain.
With her ruling, Judge Truong became the first judge to uphold a ban on dismemberment abortion. (Excerpt from One News Now article by Chris Woodward)
