Partial Birth Abortion

supreme-court.jpg Bravo !!!!!   Today the Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision upheld the ban on Partial Birth Abortions.  Come on, if this decision is offensive to you get real.  This is a bright line between Abortion and Infanticide.  The opinion was written by Justice Kennedy and joined by Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Alito.  Justices Thomas and Scalia joined in the final decision as well.  Although I am most profoundly “pro life” I really can’t see how the pro-abortion crowd can’t distinguish this from infanticide. Former ACLU attorney Justice Ruth (Buzzie) Ginzberg has written the dissent for the minority stating “Today’s decision is alarming,” she further charged that the ruling “refused to take seriously previous Supreme Court decisions on abortion.” (so sorry Ruthie)  Praise for this decision has already come from: McCain, Romney, Giuliani.  Barack Obama has strongly criticized the decision.  Of course Planned Parenthood has also criticized the decision.  We will have to wait to examine how strongly the other contenders and pretenders in the Democratic presidential nomination race express their disgust.

    we were doing a victory dance here in SD too! just when it seems like there is NO VOICE OF REASON in this fight for life a glimmer of sanity emerges.

    i am always thankful when the dem’s speak up early. at least they are taking a stand one way or the other. most of them need time to run popularity polls to see if it will hurt them to speak out.
