The Assault Continues

From the LA Times (reprinted at NYNewsday) a report that the Bush administration has sent its lawyers to the Supreme Court to ban late-term abortions.

In their appeal to the Supreme Court, the Bush administration lawyers said the lower courts should have deferred to the lawmakers in Washington, not the medical experts who testified in the case.

"Congress' findings concerning the medical necessity of partial-birth abortion were entitled to substantial deference," U.S. Solicitor General Paul D. Clement told the court in Gonzales vs. Carhart.

So, which part to make the head spin harder. That the administration continues on its relentless quest to threaten women's health or that is asserts once again that lawyers know more about medicine than doctors?
