ADL Disappointed With Supreme Court Ruling On Partial Birth Abortion Act
New York, NY, April 19, 2007 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) issued the following statement expressing its disappointment at the Supreme Court's ruling upholding the federal Partial Birth Abortion Act:
We are deeply troubled by the ramifications of the Supreme Court's ruling on abortion. By upholding, for the first time, an abortion statute which contains no exception for the health of the woman, the Supreme Court has undermined a woman's right to choose and to act in accordance with her conscience and the dictates of her faith.
We continue to believe that Americans should have the freedom to make difficult decisions of conscience and health without government interference.
ADL joined an amicus brief in the case filed by the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Rights.
