No, this is not a blog about medicine. It's Sanford Hausler's blog about the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and its opinions. The Court doesn't know about this, but I don't think it would mind.

Partial Birth Abortion Law is Out. The Second Circuit, in National Abortion Federations v. Gonzalez held the the Parial Birth Abortion Ban Act was unconstitutional because it lacked an exception for the protection of a woman's health. Chief Judge Walker concurred in the result, and Judge Straub dissented from the ruling. The decision (by Judge Newman), concurrence and dissent can be found at the Second Circuit website.
