President Applauds Congress for Partial-Birth Abortion Bill
Statement by the President

I applaud the Senate for joining the House in passing the ban on partial-birth abortion. This is very important legislation that will end an abhorrent practice and continue to build a culture of life in America. I look forward to signing it into law.
