Partial Birth Abortion Ban Ruling

With the Supreme Court's ruling yesterday on Partial Birth Abortion I felt we needed someone who was close to the news. I asked Matt Bruning from 610 WTVN and Matt's Newsroom to give us some insight.

Bob: Matt, what was the ruling?

Matt: The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4, upholding the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act passed by Congress in 2003.

Bob: What does the ruling mean?

Matt: It means that partial birth abortions continue to be banned in the United States. If you don't know what partial birth abortions are go to .

It's obviously a decision that's split down party lines with Republicans rejoicing and Democrats upset. Opponents to the ruling say it throws out three decades of constitutional rule on abortion, but the majory of the justices point out that other abortion processes are available.
I actually talked to an elderly gentleman this week who asked me why Democrats can be so supportive of a process that kills millions of unborn babies, yet calls holding terror suspects at Guantanamo Bay tourture, the death penalty cruel and unusual, and is upset that over 3,000 brave men and women have died fighting the War on Terror in Iraq and Afghanistan. I didn't have an answer for him.

Bob: Thanks for your time Matt. Looks like we have much to be thankful for, but still much to pray about.

God Bless,
Bob Speakman
