US SUPREME COURT RULES TO UPHOLD PARTIAL-BIRTH ABORTION BAN
BURBANK, CA –In a historic ruling, the Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld a law banning partial-birth
abortion. This ruling that could prove to have enormous social, legal and political implications for this
is a tremendous victory for the most innocent of the innocent,” said Jonathan Flora, the Writer/Director of the independent
movie, A Distant Thunder, the first movie out of Hollywood to address partial-birth
abortion. “Finally,” he adds, “the world is seeing this glacier of truth is truly moving.”
Partial-birth abortion is also known medically as “D&X” or “Dilation
and Extraction.” In this procedure, the doctor breeches the baby so he or she is born feet first.
However, stopping just short of delivering the baby’s head, the physician then uses scissors to make a hole in
the base of the skull, inserts a catheter that suctions out the child’s brain causing the skull to collapse.
“While all abortion is cruel and unjust,” said Flora, “this procedure is
inhumane and uncivilized. If the baby’s head had traveled just three more inches, this would be considered
murder in any court of law.”
In the majority 5-4 ruling,
Justice Anthony Kennedy, the key swing vote in these divided appeals, was joined by Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas,
Samuel Alito and Chief Justice Roberts.
A Distant Thunder, has been screened throughout Capitol Hill and across
America, receiving support from Congressmen Chabot, Smith, and Renzi as well as Senators Santorum, Brownback, and many more.
