President Bush signed the Act into law on November 5, 2003
The bill bans "partial-birth abortion,"
it legally defines a partial-birth abortion as any abortion in which the baby is delivered "past the [baby's] navel . . . outside the body of the mother," OR "in the case of head-first presentation, the entire fetal head is outside the body of the mother,“
The bill allows the method if it was ever necessary to save a mother's life.

The state of Utah has received a Medicaid block grant from the federal government for $3,000,000. The stipulation to the grant is that the funds must be used for one program to benefit a targeted group of patients. Once that targeted group is identified the funds cannot be used for another purpose. Two agencies have submitted grant proposals to the use of the money.
The first agency has developed a plan which will ensure that all children under the age of five will receive immunization against major childhood diseases and virtually eliminate the existence of diseases such as measles, whooping cough, chicken pox, etc. throughout the state for the next decade.
The second agency has developed a proposal that will provide definitive medical care and hospice services to all AIDS patients in Salt Lake County for the next fiscal year.
