ABSTRACT
The article examines the cases heard by the U.S. Supreme Court, which address the partial-birth abortion ban that U.S. President George W. Bush signed into law on November 5, 2003. In the Gonzales v. Carhart case, physician Leroy Carhart challenged a Nebraska state law that banned certain vaguely-defined abortion procedures without including any exception for a woman whose health is at risk. It was pointed out that the U.S. Congress must enact a legislation that will insure legal and safe abortion in the U.S.
