Justice Dept. to appeal Nebraska ruling on “partial-birth” abortion

In a not-so-shocking move, the Justice Department said yesterday that it will appeal the Nebraska ruling which struck down the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act.
U.S. District Judge Richard Kopf declared the ban unconstitutional earlier his month, following similar rulings by federal courts in New York and San Francisco.
As predicted by NARAL interim President Elizabeth Cavendish, these rulings striking down the bogus act have become “just a speed bump on the fast track to eliminating women’s right to choose entirely.”
