According to Christian News Network:
Lawmakers in South Dakota rejected a bill on Thursday that would have banned the practice of dismembering and decapitating babies during abortion procedures.
H.B. 1241 was struck down by an 11-1 vote, including three of its sponsors who decided to table the measure.
The legislation provided criminal penalties for any doctor who intentionally injured an unborn child, and in some cases, placing them behind bars for life.
