Thomas More Law Center defends Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act in Supreme Court

.- The Thomas More Law Center has submitted a friend-of-the-court brief with the Supreme Court of the United States, supporting Attorney General Alberto Gonzales’s efforts to uphold the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003. The United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit in Nebraska had previously found the act to be unconstitutional.

In its brief, the Law Center is also requesting that the Supreme Court “take this opportunity to reconsider and reject its ‘abortion rights’ decisions,” said Edward L. White III, trial counsel. “The time has come for the Supreme Court to prevent the grave injustices, which have resulted from those decisions, from continuing.”

The act bans the abortion procedure wherein an unborn baby, generally 20 weeks or longer in gestation, is removed from her mother’s womb, except for the head. The doctor punctures the child’s head, sucks out the child’s brains in order to collapse the skull, and then removes the dead child from the mother.

“Partial-birth abortion is a gruesome procedure. It is nothing other than infanticide and must be prohibited in this country,” said Richard Thompson, chief counsel of the Law Center. 

In the brief, the Law Center exposes the rhetoric of the pro-abortion movement, which is designed to distract the public and the courts from the reality that each time an abortion is performed, a human life is destroyed.

The Thomas More Law Center is a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
