'Partial-birth' abortion ban upheld

http://washingtontimes.com/upi/20070418-110615-1393

Quote:
WASHINGTON April 18 (UPI) -- The U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday upheld the federal ban on "partial-birth abortions" in a major victory for the Bush administration and abortion foes.

Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the opinion for the majority as the court split 5-4 voting to uphold the 2003 law as written. Kennedy -- joining Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas -- said lawsuits challenging the law banning "partial-birth" abortion should not have been allowed.

The proper way to make a challenge, if an abortion ban is claimed to harm a woman's right to abortion, is through an as-applied claim," Kennedy wrote.

The decision said the federal ban would be unconstitutional "if it subjected women to significant health risks" but that "safe medical options are available."

Writing for the minority, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said the decision failed "to take seriously" the 1992 Supreme Court decision reaffirming Roe vs. Wade and a 2000 decision that struck down a state "partial-birth" abortion law.

And how exactly does this ban define "partial-birth" abortions? And what are the "safe medical options available"?

That's the saddest part about it, people see this as a victory, but late term abortions(this is why I asked how they define it) are usually the most necessary.

When will these people learn?

I know I can't over turn a law, and I would not due to the respect of the womans wish, but are we all who are in favor or agains ready to answer to God(if you believe in him) when we die. All life is Sacred.

This question simply doesn't matter in a secular state.
You don't have, you even must not, act according to, what you think, would be God's will.


If God deemed it to be so bad, you wouldn't be sent to heaven, would you?

Did I ever say criminals were never human??? I dont remember, but the difference is they had a choice the child does not. And don't bring the Petrii Dish Argument.

Didn't say anything about a petri dish

But you believe in DP, and you just said "ALL life is sacred".

I see a big contradiction there.

Great post.

So much of what these same people do and want legal is considered sin, yet it would effect them so those don't count.

damn your right, Murderers who have been found guilty 100%, through, DNA and all other matters of law, should not live one more day. But this is not a DP thread.

You're correct, just don't say ALL life is sacred if you don't mean it.

Would Jesus, Mohammed, Abraham or anyone else think abortining a child, if it's not a risk to mothers correct?
