PBA Petitions Delivered to Supreme Court

Posted by thelamp on November 9, 2006

Thousands of men and women spoke up for life by signing the Center for Moral Clarity’s petition to the Supreme Court of the United States. The petitions have been sent to the court, so the only action remaining is prayer. Oral arguments were scheduled for Nov. 8.

For three years, babies have continued to lose their lives even though Congress passed a ban against partial-birth abortion. In November 2003, President Bush signed the baby-killing ban into law, but federal judges in California, Nebraska and New York each issued temporary restraining orders to prevent its enforcement. The Planned Parenthood Federation of America and the American Civil Liberties Union joined in the fray on behalf of four abortion providers.

They filed lawsuits alleging the law is unconstitutional because it does not include a “health exception,” which would permit the procedure under certain circumstances. Instead of a health exception, the law includes a long “findings” section with medical evidence presented in congressional hearings that indicates the procedures banned by the law are never medically necessary. Two of these lawsuits are cases the U.S. Supreme Court heard this week.
