Ohio partial birth ban upheld

The Sixth Circuit has upheld Ohio’s partial birth abortion ban. The Court rejected both claims of the plaintiffs, viz.: (1) it does not contain an adequate health exception; and (2) it imposes an "undue burden" upon a woman seeking to abort a non-viable fetus, in that the description of the banned abortion method encompasses the concededly lawful dilation andevacuation (D & E) abortion procedure. Good news!

Peter, thanks for not saying like NPR or the New York Times, "What opponents call "partial birth abortion". . . " I guess "extraction & dilation" is a good way of avoiding the fact that you’re crushing a skull, sucking the brains out, and pulling the dead baby out. The same people are angry at the military euphemism "collateral damage" for being a cold way of describing dead civilians. I saw in today’s New York Times that they wrote, "the "so-called" morning-after pill." They really go out of their way to be objective.
