South Dakota kills bill to ban decapitating babies during abortion

A committee of the South Dakota House of Representatives has voted down a bill that would have prevented abortion procedures that dismember children in the womb, reports LifeSiteNews.

H.B. 1241, a one-page bill introduced by Rep. Isaac Latterell, would have made it state law that “no licensed physician may knowingly dismember a living unborn child with the intent of endangering the life or health” of the baby.

The bill would have punished the act of “disconnecting any bones at their joint, completely severing any bones, or removing any organs or limbs, including the spinal cord, arms, legs, and internal organs” with a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison and a $50,000 fine.

If the abortion “involves the separation of the skull from the spine,” the abortionist could have been sentenced to life in prison.

The motion, which had 17 sponsors, died in the House Health and Human Services Committee today by a 11-1 vote. Three of the bill's sponsors voted to table the measure; one, Manny Steele, voted to keep the bill alive.

It was a difficult day for Latterell, who saw the committee kill another bill he introduced, to prohibit abortions procured “because the unborn child has been diagnosed with, or has had a genetic screening indicating that the unborn child may have Down syndrome.”
