WASHINGTON, April 18 /Christian Newswire/ -- In its opinion, the Court today has begun to right a terrible wrong. Partial Birth abortions, as testimony in the lower courts showed – and oral argument in the Supreme Court confirmed, is equivalent to infanticide. It includes the nearly full delivery and near-decapitation of the living child.
It is an immoral, medically unnecessary act that should be condemned not only by this Court, but every court and legislature in the country. The Court's majority has upheld the rejection of these acts against innocent children at the very threshold of their births. Their decision is an encouraging demonstration of moral fortitude.
In upholding the will of the people in this matter the Majority has laid the first blow to Roe V Wade and its putrefying spawn. We applaud the Court's resolve to end this despicable practice.
Dr. Paul CB Schenck is Executive Director of NPLAC on Capitol Hill. He has also hosted radio and television shows and was Executive VP of one of the largest pro-life law firms in the country. Dr. Schenck is currently an Associate in Priests for Life and National Representative of Catholics United for Life.
