Partial-Birth Abortion Trial Transcripts

Partial-Birth Abortion Cases heard by the Supreme Court

President Bush signed the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban into law on November 5, 2003. Because pro-abortion forces do not have the support of the public on this issue, they have again gone to the courts, seeking to strike down the law.

Federal Courts in the 2nd, 8th, and 9th Circuits ruled the ban unconstitutional. Now, the Supreme Court has agreed to consider the case, and is reviewing the decisions of the 8th and 9th Circuit courts. Oral arguments will be heard on Wednesday, November 8.

In the federal courts, testimony from practicing abortionists has been taken regarding the details of the procedure. Such testimony, beyond its legal value, has tremendous educational value. Below are the latest transcripts out of the courtrooms in New York, Nebraska, and California. Please use this information in your newsletters, letters to the editor, pro-life presentations, and personal efforts to educate your friends and neighbors about the horror of abortion.
