Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Upheld By Ohio Federal Court PDF Print E-mail

The 6th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals has upheld the Ohio Partial-Birth Abortion Ban.

Recently, the U. S. Congress passed and President Bush signed a ban on this ghastly procedure which is now being challenged in federal courts. Perhaps the Appeals Court ruling will lend support to the federal ban. But, the two laws have a significant difference.

The Ohio law has a so-called "health exception," allowing the procedure to be performed when the woman's health is in danger. The federal ban does not because pro-life Members of Congress rightly felt that the exception would devour the rule in the hands of dishonest abortionists. Instead, the federal ban includes medical findings showing this procedure, is not only never needed to protect a woman's health, it can potentially be very dangerous. Obviously, the battle to defend the unborn is far from over.
