STATEMENT BY VICTORIA COBB, PRESIDENT OF THE FAMILY FOUNDATION OF VIRGINIA, CONCERNING THE RULING BY THE 4th CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS UPHOLDING VIRGINIA'S LAW BANNING PARTIAL BIRTH INFANTICIDE

The simple fact that pro-abortion forces continue to defend the heinous and unnecessary act of partial birth infanticide with such vigor reveals their extremism. It must be noted that the procedures being discussed, a "dilation and evacuation" (D&E) abortion and an "intact D&E" both require the dismemberment of an unborn child past the known date of viability. The people of Virginia are seeing the true nature of the abortion movement.

The more people learn about the barbaric nature of these procedures, the more they support this ban. There is little doubt that we are seeing a shift toward a more pro-life nation because of the debate over partial birth abortion and as modern technology such as 4D ultrasounds reveal life in such vivid color at its earliest stages. As the truth of abortion is revealed, those willing to open their eyes to that truth are changed.
