Message from the Director of Hawaii Right to Life

Supreme Court upholding the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act 4-17-07
This is Beverly Larranaga of Hawaii Right to Life

We at Hawaii Right to Life applaud U.S. Supreme Court ruling upholding the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act.

The U.S. Supreme Court today rejected a legal challenge to the federal Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, allowing the law to go into effect for the first time since it was signed by President George W. Bush in 2003.
The federal law bans "partial-birth abortion," a legal term of art, defined in the law itself as any abortion in which the baby is delivered feet-first "past the [baby's] navel . . . outside the body of the mother," or "in the case of a head-first presentation, the entire fetal head is outside the body of the mother," before being killed

This is a major victory to the Pro-Life movement.

This has been Beverly Larranaga of Hawaii Right to Life.
