Response from John DiStaso

My only comments are these:

1) Lieberman’s statement took issue with the headline on the story, not the story itself. Suggest you check with Lieberman’s quotes in the statement or his New Hampshire campaign staff on that.

2) My description of the ruling was taken from the court’s own syllabus on same, which says in part: “For the stage subsquent to approximately the end of the first trimester, the state in promoting its interest in the health of the mother, may, if it chooses, regulate the abortion procedure in ways that are reasonably related to maternal health.”

“For the stage subsequent to viability the State, in promoting its interest in the potentiality of human life, may, if it chooses, regulate, and even proscribe, abortion except where necessary, in appropriate medical judgment, for the preservation of the life or health of the mother. Pp. 163-164; 164-165.”
