Partial Birth Abortion Ban Upheld

Omaha.com Nation/World Section
“‘Today’s decision is alarming,’ Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote in dissent. She said the ruling ‘refuses to take . . . seriously’ previous Supreme Court decisions on abortion.”

As well it should:

“The late-term abortion procedure at issue is known medically as intact dilation and extraction, or D&X. Opponents call it ‘partial-birth’ abortion. In the procedure, a woman’s uterus is dilated, then the fetus is partially removed feet first. Before removing the head, the physician uses an instrument to pierce and drain the skull.”

“Abortion opponents say the law will not reduce the number of abortions performed because an alternate method – dismembering the fetus in the uterus – is available and much more common.”

What the hell are we doing?

    I couldn’t believe Barbara Boxer’s quote here:

    http://www.cnsnews.com/ViewPolitics.asp?Page=/Politics/archive/200704/POL20070418b.html

    She puts the 32 people being killed at Virginia Tech on the same level as this court ruling, in her having a hard, emotional week. How does she, and other “progressives”, get away with her moral dishonesty?

    The court didn’t ban abortions. They upheld the ban of the *procedure* of partial birth abortion. Ms. Boxer is torn up about college kids being shot and killed, and at the same time not being able to kill an unborn child however she wants.

    Amazing.
