* Respected Law Professor: Charles Rice of Notre Dame states what many pro-life lawyers have so far refused to address, "If the court says the states can regulate abortion, then to protect the right to life, you'd have to get rid of the 'pro-life' abortion laws."

(1) During the first trimester of pregnancy for reasons based upon the professional, medical judgment of the pregnant woman's physician if: (A) the abortion is performed by the physician; (B) the woman submitting to the abortion has filed her consent with her physician." Etc., etc., etc., etc., etc. around the nation hundreds of times over. As also in Indiana, IC 16-34-2-1.1 (a) An abortion shall not be performed except with the the voluntary and informed consent..."
