New abortion law is legally flawed, some lawyers say

<"A ban on partial-birth abortion that only proscribed the D&X method of abortion and that included an exception to preserve the life and health of the mother would be constitutional in my view," O'Connor wrote then....The new law says that medical evidence unavailable to the court in 2000 and other evidence later compiled by the Republican-controlled Congress shows "that a partial-birth abortion is never necessary to preserve the health of a woman, poses serious risks to a woman's health and lies outside the standard of medical care." .........O'Connor isn't likely to take Congress at its word, Lazarus said.
