    Looks like partial birth abortions can be banned.

    with all due respect to everyone, i dont see where in the constitution it said abortion was legal, and frankly, why cant each state decide for itself without government, or court interference what they want their abortion policy too be?

    So you oppose the PBA ban then?

    Yes it would. But in the context of what he's talking about he's referring to the State and Federal in the 10th Amendment.

    Edit: 10th Amendment not 9th

    If Edwards can make a fortune suing (and driving out of practice) OB-GYNs for not being able to save premature babies, it only makes sense that aborting equally developed fetii should be wrong.

    That's what stacking the court with ideologists does for ya.

    The Conservative Court doesn't need to rule on the basis of facts anymore, the Conservative Court doesn't need to rule on the basis of law anymore, the Conservative Court will rule on partisan politics.

    The ruling gives the woman the middle finger and tells her that her life is dispensible. In other words the Conservative Court has one message in this ruling and that is: Die Bitch!

    Conservatives synonymous with the culture of Death.

    come on, dude...


    it's called democracy and is reflective of the will of the people. At this time the will of the people have said that a blank check on abortion is not allowed. Besides, a compramise isnt a one sided event and, correct me if I am wrong but abortions are still legal as are sex education, and the vast range of preventative measures?


    is the mellowdramatic fit really helpinig your position?



    believe it when I tell you that Americans feel just as strongly about the death of feti and womens health as you do about about womens rights and reproductive choices. This is not something that should prompt "sky is falling" chicken little silliness.

    I'm not all-out pro-choice by any means, but i have to disagree with your logic in the bolded area. Just because the Constitution doesn't say that an action is legal doesn't mean it's illegal. The Constitution doesn't specify whether you have the Constitutional right to eat Chinese food, but that doesn't mean the government can arrest you for it. The Constitution doesn't innumerate your rights, rather it grants the government rights and specifies limits on government power. You yourself have all rights and can do whatever you desire so long as you don't injure other human beings, their property, or commit fraud. Rights are inherent, the Bill of Rights serves to protect those rights from government abuse.

    Amendment IX

    The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

    If you mean it gets you greater sanctity and protection for human life, it looks like it does in this case. Why is protecting life bad?
