US District Judge Richard Casey today struck down the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act as unconstitutional because it doesn't contain sufficient exceptions to protect the mother's life and health.
This legislative act, passed in November 2003, bans the procedure known to doctors as intact dilation and extraction. In this procedure, a live baby of any gestation age is forcibly partially born, feet first. Just before the head emerges (i.e. live birth) the baby's skull is intentionally punctured or crushed, and its brains are sucked out. The dead baby is then allowed to be fully born.
So as of today, a woman can again choose to do this to her unborn child.
Can you imagine any decent person rejoicing at this news?
