DES MOINES, Iowa, Dec 22 (LSN)  On Monday, U.S. District Judge Robert Pratt ruled Iowa’s ban on partial-  birth abortion to be unconstitutional. This is the latest example of pro-abortion judicial activism which has become commonplace in the US where at least 17 state and federal judges have chosen to usurp the law-  making power of duly elected legislators by quashing laws against partial birth abortion.
