Supreme Court Abortion Case: Gonzales v Planned Parenthood

The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments on Wednesday in the case of Gonzales v Planned Parenthood, regarding the question of "Whether, notwithstanding Congress's determination that a health exception was unnecessary to preserve the health of the mother, the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003 is invalid because it lacks a health exception or is otherwise unconstitutional on its face." It is related to another case, Gonzalez v Carhart.

I'll update with a link to the arguments when available.

I just noticed that the NLM folks are indexing some "partial birth abortion" articles with the term "Infanticide," although it generally falls under "Abortion, Induced." Is this appropriate indexing, or a political bias? Discuss.
