In all the buzz surrounding the State of the Union address, an important story was probably missed by several readers. Two federal courts ruled the ban on partial birth abortions unconstitutional. While I don't know all the details, my understanding is that the issue was with the wording, specifically the lack of a clause to protect the mother's health.
Nevertheless, before you celebrate this victory for "choice", I would strongly urge you to watch this video on aborted fetuses in the first trimester (CAUTION: EXTREMELY GRAPHIC AND DISTURBING!, well before the third trimester that the partial birth abortions refer to. I cannot think a person would not be moved by this video.
