Mary Spaulding Balch has been fighting against what she calls “dismemberment abortion” since she was 17 years old.
Now, at 60, she’s breathing a sigh of relief.
“It’s been a long time. Too long,” Balch told The Daily Signal in a phone interview. “I was naïve enough to think back in the 70s, we would be able to get this under control rather quickly.”
Balch was referring to an abortion procedure that requires doctors to “knowingly dismember” a living unborn child during the second trimester and extract it “one piece at a time” from the mother’s uterus.
