Petition to Ban Dismemberment Abortions in Ohio

Dismemberment_abortion.jpgI sign this petition in support of Senate Bill 145 which protects unborn babies from dismemberment abortions, otherwise known as “dilation and evacuation.” It is time Ohio put an end to this inhumane practice that brutalizes the body of an unborn child.

Dilation and evacuation is a procedure in which the abortionist first dilates the woman’s cervix and then uses steel instruments to dismember and extract the baby from the uterus. The D&E abortion procedure is usually performed between thirteen and twenty-four weeks LMP. In 2015, the Ohio Department of Health reported nearly 3,000 D&E abortions in the state of Ohio.

Like partial-birth abortion, dismemberment abortion is a brutal procedure which literally rips the child limb from limb. In Gonzales v. Carhart, the Supreme Court said, "No one would dispute that, for many, D & E is a procedure itself laden with the power to devalue human life.”

I urge you to protect your most vulnerable constituents.

    If this would have been so from the beginning of America, you may be the one not here to be a part of Congress.

    We are no longer the United States of America. We do not seem to have the right to vote on important issues.

    I am horrified our country is allowing the murder of the innocence, a heartbeat means a life. I am not political in any way, but I can not live with myself to not speak up about how horrific this new bills to kill a baby is, it is simply barbaric. Murder is murder and a beating life is a life.

    Life ends upon the stopping of the heartbeat. Life begins at the starting of the heartbeat. This is not my opinion. It is fact. It is science, but certainly not rocket.

    There are currently too many options for birth control, including the plan b pill, (aka, “morning after pill.”

    Abortion is totally uncivilized and barbaric. This should not still be going on in this modern era. It is totally abnormal for a human being to brutally kill their offspring, for ANY REASON! We have become desensitized, and let the abnormal be defined as “normal.”

    Abortion is in the lines of barbarism, and is NOT of God!

    We will all look back one day and be ashamed that this occurred for so long in our culture.

    No child should have to die such a heinous and barbarous death just because a woman doesn’t have enough sense to keep her legs closed. All abortion needs to be banned. Abortion is a slap in the face for any mother/woman that has had a miscarriage, still birth, or has battled infertility.

    I have had two “missed miscarriages” and as such chose to deliver my babies naturally (12 weeks gestation and 10 weeks gestation respectively). I made this difficult choice rather than endure this recommended “procedure” because I wanted to bury my children whole and to hold their little bodies in my hand just once as their mother.

    If there is an opportunity to testify in support of this bill at a later time, I would be honored to do so. I have an understanding of the legislative process and currently work as a clinician specializing in maternal mental health.

    Please let me know if there is any way I can be of help.
