Rep. Baker lauds Supreme Court decision on partial-birth abortion ban

U.S. Rep. Richard Baker, R-Baton Rouge, released the following statement today in response to the Supreme Court's decision to uphold the partial-birth abortion ban passed by a two-thirds vote in the House and Senate and signed into law in 2003:

"I applaud this decision, which puts an end to a horrible and unnecessary procedure that takes life and diminishes all life, and a decision which represents proper restraint by the court to allow the will of the vast majority of people on this issue to be exercised by the elected leaders who represent them."
