SHREWSBURY, N.J., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The following is being issued by Rosa Acuna and Harold J. Cassidy:
WHAT: Filing of motion for reconsideration and Reargument in the New
Jersey Supreme Court as last step before U.S. Supreme Court filing
Rosa Acuna, the plaintiff in the historic informed consent abortion case will be filing a motion for plenary reconsideration of the September 12, 2007 decision of the New Jersey Supreme Court in which that court held that a physician can take a consent from a woman without disclosing that the procedure will terminate the life of a Human Being as a matter of Biological Fact.
WHEN: 11 a.m., Tuesday, September 25, 2007
WHERE: In front of the Hughes Justice Complex, 25 West Market Street,
WHO: Harold Cassidy, attorney for Rosa Acuna
In taking this action, Ms. Acuna notes that while she is prepared to take her case to the U.S. Supreme Court, she also has "a deep respect for the New Jersey Supreme Court and we feel it is important to provide the court an opportunity to correct what we feel are errors, before I file in the U.S. Supreme Court. The Right to choose has no meaning if it is not a Right to make an informed choice. The Sept. 12th decision of the New Jersey Supreme Court is a departure from the existing law that places a premium on the need to give information to a woman that she wants to know in order to preserve her autonomy in matters so deeply personal to her. It is necessary to preserve this requirement to protect the rights, interests, and health of women of our state."
In addition to Mr. Cassidy, others participating in the press conference are:
Reta Reyes, Executive Director of local Heartbeat International Affiliate representing more than 2,000 pregnancy help centers that counsel hundreds of thousands of post abortive women each year.
Richard Collier, attorney for all of these organizations (also participating, below) that have filed a friend of the court brief.
Three women who had abortions and had the same experiences as Mrs. Acuna.
Representatives of Carenet, a national network of 950 pregnancy resource centers that counsels about 100,000 post abortive women for emotional distress due to abortion each year.
Representatives of the Christian Medical and Dental Association.
Representatives of the Catholic Medical Association.
Representatives of the Association of Pro-Life Physicians.
