What Bush Did Right:

1) Prohibited Partial Birth Abortion

            In 2003 President George W. Bush and Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales enacted the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act. With this act a procedure that the word sickening cannot adequately describe, came to an end.

            Under Section 3, the act states, “Any physician who, in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce, knowingly performs a partial-birth abortion and thereby kills a human fetus shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 2 years, or both.” Prustice.
