Face-lift surgery could be legal under ‘partial-birth’ law
The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that partial-birth abortion can be legal, and now face-lift operations like those performed by doctors are legal under the new law.
The court said the procedure can be performed without the use of a C-section or C-sections in certain circumstances.
“It is the opinion of this court that partial birth abortions can be lawfully performed in the context of the laws of several states in which they are legal,” the justices said in a 4-3 decision Thursday.
The ruling could have a major impact on the practice of the procedure in many states, including Florida, which last year approved a partial-breast-only procedure to remove fetal tissue from an unborn child for medical use.
Some states have also banned the procedure.
The Supreme Court decision was the latest setback for partial-birthers, who say there is no medical evidence of the health risks of the operation, and who argue that a baby is still a person even after birth.
The majority opinion said the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child is violated by the U’town Convention on Human Rights and the Convention on Biological Diversity, which defines human beings as persons, regardless of when they were born.
It also said the Constitution protects the right of pregnant women to choose their abortions, and that “the right to abortion is not infringed by state laws that ban the procedure.”
The ruling comes as the Trump administration seeks to undo the landmark Roe v.
Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.
In December, the president signed a new law banning abortion at a time when the Supreme Court was deciding whether to uphold the landmark decision.
The administration has also proposed a new measure that would ban abortion in cases of rape or incest.
But that measure, which was expected to go into effect in about a week, has faced opposition from some conservative lawmakers and groups that oppose abortion rights.
In an op-ed published by the New York Times last week, Republican Sen. Mike Lee, who represents Utah’s 2nd District, said the Supreme Supreme Court’s decision “should be taken into account” in the case.
The case is Pregnant Women v.
