On trial: A state's ban on brutality

"Abortion takes a human life" bannerThe trial continues over Kentucky's effort to end dismemberment abortions after 11 weeks of pregnancy.

Governor Matt Bevin (R-Kentucky) signed the ban into law in April after it was passed overwhelmingly by Kentucky's House (75-13) and Senate (31-5). Soon thereafter the ACLU filed a federal lawsuit, claiming the law (HB 454) would block women from having an abortion and/or force them to travel long distances if they opted for the procedure.

Speaking Wednesday on "The Hour of Intercession" radio program on Urban Family Talk, Joyce Ostrander of The Family Foundation of Kentucky said the procedure amounts to tearing a baby limb from lib.

"If our government passed a law saying a serial murderer was going to be killed that way, we would object to that," she said. "Why would we do this to unborn children when there is an alternative? And there are ways that they can ensure that the baby is no longer living before they do this procedure to remove the unborn child – and that's what this law is simply asking."

Court proceedings began Tuesday. Ostrander said she expects things to continue until sometime next week.

"Many people rose up and came together and met at the courthouse and have been praying," she shared. "And we have a prayer list that lists the individual attorneys and the judges and the people who are involved in this industry – and the industry is abortion."

Several other states have or had laws similar to the one passed in Kentucky.
