Breaking News: Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Upheld

By a narrow 5-4 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court today upheld a federal law banning the late-term abortion procedure called 'intact dilation and extraction,' better-known by the label 'partial-birth abortion.' This is a major victory for the pro-life cause.

Partial-birth abortion (as we have discussed in an earlier post), has been called by one author "constitutionally sanctioned homicide." Praise the Lord it is no longer sanctioned by law, nor by our courts!

This exciting news is an answer to prayer.

That's great news.

Just one question is that where the fetus is removed up to the head and then the head is vacuumed?

Yes, this is a gruesome and painful procedure, where the baby is delivered feet first up to the neck. Then scissors are used to pierce the skull, and suction is used to evacuate the brains for delivery of the now-dead baby.

This particular procedure is now illegal.
