SCOTUS Backs Ban on Partial Birth Abortion, “Promote Respect for life, Including the life of the Unborn.”
Well its about time. The US Supreme Court in a 5–4 ruling upheld the nationwide ban on partial birth abortion. Even if you are pro-abortion, one would have to concede that the sick act of “partial birth” abortion goes beyond the pale of common decency. Its hardly an issue of choice.
WASHINGTON (AP) – The Supreme Court upheld the nationwide ban on a controversial abortion procedure Wednesday, handing abortion opponents the long- awaited victory they expected from a more conservative bench.

The SCOTUS decided to uphold “the respect for life”, what a novel concept. An abortion procedure? Partial birth abortion is not a procedure, it is barbarism.
The Supreme Court broke new ground yesterday in upholding federal restrictions on abortion, with President Bush’s two appointees joining a court majority that said Congress was exercising its license to “promote respect for life, including the life of the unborn.”
It was also the first time since the landmark Roe v. Wade decision of January 1973 that justices approved an abortion restriction that did not contain an exception for the health of the woman. It does, however, provide an exception to save the woman’s life. (Washington Post)
Blue Crab Boulevard, “SCOTUS Upholds “Partial Birth” Abortion Ban”
This is a barbarous procedure. Regardless of where you stand on abortion, this is an abomination that we, as a society, should not allow. (I am frankly shocked that any doctors in this country agree to perform what is nothing more than the killing of infants. Not embryos, infants.)
