(A somewhat edited email I got from the ACLJ today.)
Tomorrow, our major brief will be filed at the Supreme Court of the United States in the Gonzales v. Carhart case.
This case represents our opportunity to see partial-birth abortion BANNED in our country once and for all.
And we will not back down!
As you may recall, Congress approved a national ban on this horrible procedure years ago.
But it was hardly a victory for us:
The law was almost immediately challenged in three separate legal cases in Nebraska, New York, and California.
In the Nebraska case - thanks to the ruling of an activist judge - a federal appeals court declared the ban unconstitutional.
In response, the U.S. Solicitor General filed a petition with the Supreme Court to uphold the constitutionality of the ban and reverse the lower court's ruling.
Our major brief supports the government's position and represents 70 members of Congress.
The ACLJ has been involved in defending the national ban on partial-birth abortion since its passage by Congress - and we will not stop now!
It is time to see an end to the murder-torture of partially-born babies in our country!
We are confident the Justices of the Supreme Court will consider arguments for and against the constitutionality of a ban on partial-birth abortion ... the practice of beginning the live delivery of a baby, only to interrupt the process by stabbing the baby to death while the head is still in the womb.
With your help and God's wisdom, we can see the federal ban on partial-birth abortion upheld.
Thank you for standing with us as we ask the Supreme Court of the United States to protect unborn children!
