Partial Birth Abortion 2

Augmenting Dr. Craig’s earlier post on the federal partial birth ban, The Detroit News reports that the Michigan legislature has sent its own partial birth ban to the governor. Incidentally, the ban passed the House with the exact number of votes necessary to override a veto, while the Senate was one vote shy of veto-override. Notably,

The bill would create the "Legal Birth Definition Act." It would define the moment a person is legally born as being when any part of a fetus is expelled from a woman’s body.

The state’s Democratic governor has not yet promised a veto, and I dare say that the override margins make this a trickier decision for her.
