Vitter Applauds Supreme Court Decision Affirming Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act

U.S. Sen. David Vitter today made the following statement applauding the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to uphold a federal ban on partial birth abortion:

"This is a landmark decision that builds a legal consensus for protecting and cherishing life. I supported the federal ban on this gruesome practice when I was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, and today's decision reaffirms the constitutionality of that ban," said Vitter.

The Supreme Court ruled 5 - 4 in favor of upholding the Partial Birth Abortion Act.
