President Signs Partial-Birth Ban

From My Way News:

"'For years, a terrible form of violence has been directed against children who are inches from birth while the law looked the other way,' Bush said as he signed the ban on a procedure called partial-birth abortion by its critics.

The White House staged the ceremony, before about 400 lawmakers and abortion opponents, at a federal building named for former President Ronald Reagan, a strong supporter of anti-abortion groups. 'Today at last the American people and our government have confronted the violence and come to the defense of the innocent child,' he said."
