On November 5, 2003, President George W. Bush signed the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act into law. The bill had passed the House of Representatives by a 281–142 vote and the Senate by a vote of 64–34. The law states, "Any physician who, in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce, knowingly performs a partial-birth abortion and thereby kills a human fetus shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 2 years, or both."
Alleluia! In one of the most important Supreme Court decisions since Roe v. Wade, the Partial-Birth Abortion Act of 2003 was ruled constitutional today!! History will remember Gonzales v. Carhart.
The Supreme Court has reversed a decision it handed down in 2000 and upheld a Congressional ban on the gruesome partial-birth abortion procedure. The ruling indicated that the federal ban on the abortion procedure did not violate the so-called right to abortion established under Roe v. Wade.
Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the majority opinion for the Supreme Court and indicated that the abortion advocates who sued to overturn the ban "have not demonstrated that the Act would be unconstitutional in a large fraction of relevant cases." Source: LifeNews
