Lifenews: The West Virginia legislature gave final approval today to a bill to ban the dismemberment abortion method that tears unborn babies limb from limb. The West Virginia Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act, SB 10, successfully made it through the state legislature and now it heads to the governor.
The bill passed by a vote of 86-13 after more than an hour of debate. Any abortion practitioner who violates the ban would lose his medical license, essentially prohibiting him from ever doing abortions again.
Democratic Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has not said if he will sign or veto the bill. MORE
