surgical instruments 2Members of Nebraska's unicameral lawmaking body may hit a snag in approving a pro-life bill.

If LB 814 becomes law, it will prohibit dismemberment abortions, which are performed in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy.

"Dismemberment is a particularly brutal procedure," says Marion Miner of the Nebraska Catholic Conference. "Instruments are inserted through the cervix, and the child is pulled apart piece by piece while still alive and not anesthetized until the child bleeds to death."

All of the baby's parts are then examined to make sure nothing is left behind because the woman could otherwise face a serious and even deadly infection.

Miner

"This particular procedure is not only profoundly disrespectful and callous with regard to the life that is taken in such a brutal way, it's also debasing to the person that performs it, and it is also degrading to the society which tolerates it," Miner submits.

The pro-life proposal was introduced by Senator Suzanne Geist (R) of Lincoln, and though 25 of 49 senators have signed on to it, its future is questionable, as abortion proponents will no doubt filibuster, which would be the only way to prevent it from reaching the desk of Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts (R).
