Abortion ruling puts pregnant women at risk

The U.S. Supreme Court, for the first time, succeeded in banning an abortion procedure when five justices voted to outlaw late-term abortions.

This could be a political preface to trying to outlaw Roe vs. Wade.

Doctors say the outlawed procedure is used rarely and only when absolutely necessary. They say it is the safest method of assuring a woman’s health in a precarious situation.

This ban makes it difficult for doctors because it is so vaguely worded that it will discourage them from using most methods used in late-term abortions.

What a pity that politicians, and now the Supreme Court , have undermined the knowledge and skills of doctors, endangering the health of pregnant women.
