Yesterday, in the United States, Mary Fallin, Governor of Oklahoma, signed the Dismemberment Abortion Actapproved by chambers on 8 April.
This law prohibits abortion after the first semester. Legislation considers that the dilatation-extraction methods used for abortions after twelve weeks of pregnancy, essentially involving the use of a forceps, mutilate the foetus.
Oklahoma is the second state to adopt this type of measure, the Governor of Kansas having passed a similar law last week.
