I have only practiced partial birth abortions on dead fetuses—or in babies where there are severe deformities that are incompatible with life, like babies without a brain (anencephalic babies), where the risk of a severely ill mother (diabetic or hypertensive) would endanger her life if subjected to Cesarean Section. The worst mistake this country can do is to legislate the practice of medicine. Medicine should be regulated by our respective Medical Associations. Groups like the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists argue that depriving physicians of this option would create real danger. Difficult ethical choices should be left to be decided between the physician and his patients. This is precisely an area where less government is the best choice.
