Partial Birth Abortion Ban Upheld

The Supreme Court upheld the Federal Law banning partial birth abortions. This decision is a step in the right direction with the court beginning to ignore bad precedent. A similar bill passed on the state level had been over turned by the Supreme Court. Hopefully, this is just the first step towards correcting the horrendous injustice called Roe V. Wade.

As expected the vote ran down the line between conservative and liberal justices with a 5-4 ruling.

Planned to not be a Parenthood is rather upset with the ruling.

Said Eve Gartner of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America: "This ruling flies in the face of 30 years of Supreme Court precedent and the best interest of women's health and safety. ... This ruling tells women that politicians, not doctors, will make their health care decisions for them." She had argued that point before the justices.
I hate to break it to you Miss Gartner but this means that the government is finally starting to do its job, protect the defenseless against selfish, inhumane acts of greed. Of course, I also have to ask what about the best interest of the child who's life is in question?
