bullet 2007-APR-18: U.S. Supreme Court upholds constitutionality of federal anti- partial birth abortion law:By the usual 5 to 4 vote, the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the 2003 federal law banning most intact D&X abortions. The court overturned the decisions of all six lower courts. 1More info.
bullet 2007-APR-25: Pro-life video clip online: A pro-choice video has been placed online at the web site. It carries the following warning:

"Right-To-Life Abortion Clip - WARNING: GRAPHIC VIDEO This is one of the most difficult video clips to watch; actual aborted fetuses. It is gripping, emotional and almost too tough and strong to watch. This might be the most devastating anti-abortion statement ever made. WARNING - GRAPHIC VIDEO"

bullet 2007-APR-26: Mexico: Women have limited access to abortion in Mexico City: Against overwhelming opposition from the Roman Catholic Church, lawmakers in Mexico City have authorized abortions on request for women in their first trimester: i.e. less than 12 weeks from conception. Women who are near the first trimester limit will be given abortions immediately; those whose pregnancies are less advanced will have to wait until after the rules are published -- probably during the week of APR-28. More details.
