Ghoulish Abortion Practices Targeted in Maryland Legislative Hearings

The ACLJ’s pro-life legal, policy, and government affairs teams continues to work with state legislatures around the country to craft common-sense pro-life legislation.

In the last week, I was privileged to testify in the Maryland state capitol as a witness defending the constitutionality of bills banning late-term abortions and banning dismemberment abortions. The Maryland legislature is currently considering bills that confront some of these ghoulish abortion procedures, which are currently legal in the state.

Two bills in the Maryland House of Delegates

The first hearings took place in the Maryland House of Delegates, House Committee on Health and Government Operations, on March 10. Two bills were before the committee:


  • HB 547, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban abortions after 20 weeks post-fertilization (22 weeks LMP), and
  • HB 1167, Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act of 2017.
