This is a good news bad news situation.
Let’s start with the bad news:
There are still people out there who wholeheartedly believe that tearing apart a young living human’s body, limb from limb, is OK. They are so accepting of this barbaric practice that they will testify in front of a State House saying so.
Take this person for example, Rachelle Yeung Public Policy Counsel for the ACLU of Maryland. She, along with the entire Maryland State House of Delegates, watched a former abortionist’s explanation and reenactment of a D&E abortion. Something that made the entire room look up from their cell phones and left everyone in shock. Everyone, that is, except for representatives from NARAL, Planned Parenthood, and the ACLU.
After Ms. Young’s brief and detached testimony in opposition of a bill that would protect living human beings from the suffering endured by dismemberment the womb, she was questioned as to whether she considers the procedure “inhumane”. Her answer? “No. No I do not.”

This is what a dismemberment abortion looks like using medical diagrams:
But wait! The good news:
Those opposing life-saving legislation were in the minority. Three pro-abortion representatives, whose entire job description is to lobby and testify in the MD General Assembly, showed up to give basic and unemotional testimony.
In comparison, TEN supporters of the Dismemberment Abortion Ban showed up including: a student leader from Huntingtown High School, a physician, a mom who delivered her son at 26 weeks (when dismemberment abortions are currently legal), two women who shared personal stories of how the abortion industry betrayed them, and myself representing the pro-life generation in Maryland.
We were a powerful force. I was honored to work alongside bold delegates, passionate professionals, and student leaders who are bringing real change to Maryland.
