Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Upheld

This afternoon, the Supreme Court upheld a national ban of partial-birth abortions that President “Dubya” Bush signed into law in 2003. So now the supreme court is limiting and banning specific procedures. Fantastic.

    Wow. If Wesleyan students don’t understand that “partial-birth abortions” are done only in extreme and specific cases when a woman’s health/life is in jeopardy; or when the fetus has no chance of surviving outside the womb; or when the fetus will only survive for a few days or hours, usually in agony – and that, further, the Supreme Court’s decision threatens *all* late-term abortions, which again are only done in grave situations – if WESLEYAN students don’t get this, then there’s really not much hope for this nation, is there?

    I agree that third-term abortions are ethically questionable, and should be avoided at all costs. But the issue with the “partial-birth” abortion ban is that it outlaws procedures that in certain cases are necessary to save a woman’s life.

    Partial Birth abortion is horrible. Also, 2nd and 3rd term fetuses are not much different from newborn babies. Some crazy liberals use this to support partial-birth and even post-birth abortion, which is ridiculous. I feel that abortions should be limited to 1st-term unless there are serious risks to the mother’s health… and even in the 1st-term, I would hope they’re only done if truly necessary. The morning after pill is a good idea though, and it should be utilized.

    Yeah. Being pro-choice does not have to involve being pro- legal partial birth.You guys ought to change the fetus image if it is actually supposed to represent a fetus at an age relevant to the comment. It’s a pretty common media manipulation to show embryos and fetuses at early stages when the beings in question are actually much older and larger.
