Bush Admin. Files Appeal Brief in Nebraska Partial-Birth Abortion Lawsuit
Here is a story we would not be reading if President Bush had lost.
According to the brief, the American Medical Association convened a panel to study the issue of partial-birth abortions.
The expert panel “could not find ‘any’ identified circumstance” where partial-birth abortion “was ‘the only appropriate alternative’” to preserve the health of the mother."
The Justice Department also points to Congressional findings indicating that partial-birth abortions may pose health risks for women. Such risks include cervical incompetence, trauma to the uterus, and lacerations or hemorrhaging.
