The Pennsylvania Senate is considering a new bill to ban brutal dismemberment abortions and painful late-term abortions in the Commonwealth.

Similar to a state House bill introduced earlier this year, Pennsylvania Senate Bill 888 would ban brutal second-trimester abortions that involve tearing unborn babies limb by limb in the mother’s womb, Maria Gallagher, Legislative Director of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation, told LifeNews.

Gallagher called the bill a “critical piece of legislation” that would protect unborn babies from abortion in Pennsylvania. About 1,550 unborn babies are killed every year in Pennsylvania in horrific dismemberment abortions, sometimes called D&E abortions, she said.

“We hope that Governor Tom Wolf will rescind his previous veto threat and look at the Senate version with new eyes,” Gallagher continued. “A recent statewide poll showed that a majority of Pennsylvanians—including a majority of Pennsylvania women—support a ban on cruel dismemberment abortions.

“These types of abortions should not be permitted in a civilized society,” she said.

Wolf, who is pro-abortion, previously threatened to veto the House version of the bill in April. That bill, sponsored by state Rep. Kathy Rapp, would ban brutal dismemberment abortions and prohibit abortions after 20 weeks.

The new Senate bill, sponsored by state Sen. Michele Brooks, R-Erie, also would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy when scientific evidence shows that unborn babies can feel pain. Gallagher said the legislation also would reflect the development of new technologies that are able to save babies at earlier and earlier stages of development.

The Pennsylvania Family Institute has more details on its blog:

In Pennsylvania, abortions are permitted as far into a pregnancy as 24 weeks and 6 days. At this stage a baby would likely survive on their own. This limit became law in 1989, at a time when doctors typically did not treat a baby born before 23-24 weeks because of the slim chance of survival. Thanks to medical advancements, premature babies are now surviving at record rates, premature babies like Lydia and Will, two children who were born prematurely and are now thriving!
