Abortion Fast Facts

(CNN)Here’s a look at abortion in the United States.

In 2003, President George W. Bush signed a law called the Partial Birth Abortion Act of 2003. The law uses a non-medical phrase to describe a late-term procedure that involves dilation and extraction of the fetus. The law has been challenged in courts, including the Supreme Court, which upheld the law in a 5-4 ruling in 2007.
