UNITED STATES JUSTICE FOUNDATION FILES BRIEF IN SUPPORT OF PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION BAN
The UNITED STATES JUSTICE FOUNDATION (USJF) today announced that it had filed an Amicus (friend-of-the-court) Brief in the case of GONZALES v. CARHART, Case No. 05-380, in the Supreme Court of the United States. The Brief was filed on behalf of California State Assemblyman RAY HAYNES, the TRADITIONAL VALUES COALITION, the CALIFORNIA REPUBLICAN ASSEMBLY, and USJF.
The Brief states that during the course of debate on this Bill, in the United States Senate, it was forcefully pointed out, by speeches and by witnesses that a significant reason for the use of the partial birth abortion method, which all competent medical authorities say is never necessary as a procedure, is to harvest body parts for sale. During the course of the hearings on the legislation, an employee of two of the companies that collected from abortion practitioners and sold on the open market fetal body parts, testified. His testimony indicated not only a massive violation of federal law regarding the sale of human body parts, but made clear the greed involved by abortion practitioners who, according to the witness, at times pressured women into having late term abortions, so that they could â€œharvestâ€ the body parts for sale.
According to USJF Staff Attorney COLETTE WILSON, of Escondido, California, the lead attorney for USJF in this case, â€œThe heinous act of profiteering on the sale of harvested body parts from the murder of innocent, fully developed, children, as they are about to leave the womb, is reminiscent of the murder of millions of Jews during World War II by the Nazis and the subsequent extraction from the bodies of gold teeth and skin, the removal of hair, and any other thing of value from their bodies for sale.â€
