Judge Rules U.S. Law Banning "Gruesome" Partial Birth Abortion Unconstitutional

Federal District Judge Richard Casey in New York today ruled that the federal government cannot enforce the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act because the law conflicts with an earlier 5-4 Supreme Court ruling in favor of partial-birth abortion.

Despite his ruling, Judge Casey also said, "The Court finds that the testimony at trial and before Congress establishes that D&X [partial-birth abortion] is a gruesome, brutal, barbaric, and uncivilized medical procedure."
This will be appealed. All evidence indicates that there is NEVER any reason in these cases to kill innocent children to protect the life of the mother. I had hoped the Judge Casey would have ruled in a manner which upheld the Constition of the United States rather than the Constitution of the Abortionists.
