I have not read any pro-lifer saying to put a born baby in a bucket and let it die. Please link to it if I'm mistaken.
Partial birth abortion were usually done during the late second trimester.
It was the procedure that was banned not the abortions themselves.
it was a piece of legislation signed to make pro life people feel like something had been done..but the egislation just made it harder on the the women who wanted to bury the remains of a pregnancy that went medically wrong.
The Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003 ...enacted November 5, 2003, ... is a United States law prohibiting a form of late-term abortion that the Act calls "partial-birth abortion", often referred to in medical literature as intact dilation and extraction...
This statute prohibits a method of abortion in the United States that it names "partial birth abortion". The procedure described in the statute isually used in the second trimester,from 15 to 26 weeks, some of which occur before and some of which occur after viability. The law itself contains no reference to gestational age or viability. The present statute is directed only at a method of abortion, rather than at preventing any woman from obtaining an abortion.

When the congressman clarified his question she said she did not know the answer because she was not a doctor and she did not know what happens.
Yep... it sure looks like the congressman was trying to put on her on the spot which he did because she really did not know what happens when an abortion at or after 20 weeks gestation takes place.
