- Successful Careers Rely on Details By GARY J. CARUSO

- The Law, Prayer and Partial Birth Abortion By CHARLES RICE
Sometimes the truth does come out in a lawsuit. This month the full U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments on Wisconsin and Illinois laws forbidding partial birth abortion (PBA) except to save the mother's life. In Planned Parenthood v. Doyle, Judge Richard Posner, writing for a 7th Circuit panel that held the Wisconsin law unconstitutional, described PBA: "After the cervix (the mouth of the uterus), has been dilated, [t]he physician draws the fetus out feet first. When only the fetus's head remains in the uterus, the physician inserts a scissors into the base of the fetus's brain, inserts a tube in the hole made by the scissors, and removes the contents of the skull by suction, causing the skull to collapse. The physician then completes the extraction of the now-dead fetus."

However, life is an expert at homogenizing the black and white to make gray.
