A lower court decision striking down a federal statute barring the controversial practice of partial-birth abortions is under judicial review in the Supreme Court.

Opponents of the procedure include many liberals, as well as the vast majority of conservatives and virtually the entirety of the religious right.

Pro-life forces are watching this case closely.

(Excerpt)

Quote:
Washington, D.C. — Operation Rescue’s Troy Newman and Keith Mason were at the U.S. Supreme Court with pro-lifers from around the nation, including Fr. Frank Pavone, Rev. Pat Mahoney, and many others, for the oral arguments in the twin cases of Gonzales v. Carhart and Gonzales v. Planned Parenthood, the challenges to the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban of 2003. It was a cold, rainy day out at the steps with pro-aborts chanting and Christians preaching.

Meanwhile, those who were inside the hearing reported an interesting exchange between justices about how to refer to the baby in the womb. Is “it” a child or a fetus or some kind of half-and-half being? To be honest, we found that a little absurd. Location of the baby does not affect his or her humanity, and only some kind of metaphysically contorted argument would propose such a thing. Humanity is determined at the moment of conception when a new, unique person is created who bears the image of God. However, it seems that Scalia was trying to provoke some logical thought among his colleagues with his comments.
