'Dismembered Limb by Limb While Still Alive': KY Ban on Gruesome Abortions Blocked by Judge; Will It Head to the US Supreme Court?

Benjamin Gill : May 14, 2019 : CBN News

Kentucky's law specifically targets the abortion method known as "dilation and evacuation." Steve Pitt, lead attorney for Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin's legal team, described that second-trimester procedure as "brutal, gruesome and inhumane."

Some of the most high-profile measures are the "Heartbeat" laws which have passed in Mississippi, Georgia, Ohio, and Kentucky. Similar laws are currently moving through legislatures in Missouri, Louisiana, and Alabama. An unborn person develops an audible, distinct heartbeat about six weeks into a pregnancy.

"For pro-life folks, these are huge victories," said Sue Liebel, state director for the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List. "And I think they're indicative of the momentum and excitement and the hope that's happening with changes in the Supreme Court and having such a pro-life president."

As CBN News has reported extensively, states with conservative legislatures have been passing a high number of pro-life laws in recent months and years. Some pro-lifers believe because President Trump has named pro-life-leaning justices to the court that a door could be open to challenge Roe v. Wade. That's the Supreme Court ruling that created a so-called right to abortion in 1973.

New Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh have not given any indication that they would, in fact, vote to overturn Roe. Nevertheless, these laws could be headed for a major judicial showdown one way or another.

Two months ago, a federal judge blocked Kentucky's heartbeat law. And a few days ago, a federal judge blocked a different Kentucky law on second-trimester abortions, setting it on a possible course for the Supreme Court. US District Judge Joseph H. McKinley Jr. ruled that Kentucky's law creates a "substantial obstacle" for women seeking abortions.

Kentucky's law specifically targets the abortion method known as "dilation and evacuation." Steve Pitt, lead attorney for Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin's legal team, described that second-trimester procedure as "brutal, gruesome and inhumane."

"We profoundly disagree with the court's decision and will take this case all the way to the Supreme Court, if necessary, to protect unborn children from being dismembered limb by limb while still alive," said Elizabeth Goss Kuhn, spokeswoman for Gov. Bevin.

It's not clear if the court is even willing to take up a heartbeat case or a second-trimester abortion case. If the high court did issue a favorable ruling on a heartbeat law it could effectively outlaw most abortions in America. Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
