U.S. Supreme Court to Hear Oral Arguments in Partial Birth Abortion Cases This Week

"ANN ARBOR, MI — The day after the November 7th general elections, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on the constitutionality of the 2003 federal ban on partial birth abortions in two cases: Gonzales v. Carhart, an appeal from the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals in Nebraska, and Gonzales v. Planned Parenthood, an appeal from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in California.

The Thomas More Law Center, a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, submitted a friend of the court brief in the Carhart case supporting Attorney General Alberto Gonzales’s efforts to uphold the ban. Their brief was filed on behalf of the Law Center, the National Pro-Life Alliance, a nonpartisan coalition of over 600,000 pro-life Americans, and the Catholic League, the nation’s largest Catholic civil rights organization.

The 2003 law bans a particularly barbaric and gruesome abortion procedure used in the fifth or sixth month of pregnancy where the unborn child is removed from the mother’s womb except for the head. The doctor punctures the child’s head, sucks out the brains in order to collapse the skull, and then removes the dead child for the mother.

Immediately after the 2003 Act was signed into law, pro-abortion groups filed lawsuits in New York, San Francisco, and Lincoln, Nebraska. Lower courts and appellate courts found the ban unconstitutional in all three cases." Read more Thomas More Law Center.
