Ban on Partial-Birth Abortion Advances

Thursday, 05 June 2003 12:00 AM

Abortion rights groups have promised a swift court challenge. NARAL Pro Choice America President Kate Michelman called it "a broad, unconstitutional bill" that "sacrifices women's health and future fertility on the altar of extreme right wing ideology."

Unless the Supreme Court strikes the bill down, Michelman said, "doctors will face criminal charges and prison sentences for giving women and their families the best possible medical care."

However, Family Research Council President Ken Connor called partial-birth abortion "a gruesome and grisly procedure that 70 percent of Americans agree should be illegal."

Connor thinks the legislation's "tightened definition of partial birth abortion" makes it "constitutionally sound." "It's time we put this barbaric procedure behind us."
