SAN FRANCISCO, November 27, 2003 ( – San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera is seeking to have the city join Planned Parenthood in its legal challenge to the Partial Birth Abortion Ban.  The Chronicle reports that Herrera filed a motion in U.S. District Court on Tuesday asking to join the lawsuit on behalf of San Francisco’s Department of Public Health and its employees.

Spouting the same rhetoric used by pro-abortion zealots who support the gruesome late-term abortion procedures, Herrera said “public health services would be compromised, potentially endangering the health and lives of the city’s neediest women,” with the legislation.  See coverage in the Chronicle:
