WASHINGTON — 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 5-4 ruling said the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act that Congress passed and President Bush signed into law in 2003 does not violate a woman's constitutional right to an abortion.

So much for the claim by some Rudy boosters that the President can't impact abortion.

Clinton vetoed the ban (which Rudy supported) and Bush signed it.

Bush's judges were the difference in upholding the ban.

Don’t want to be greedy, but one more would be nice. Stevens has been on the edge of leaving for the past two years now.

Kennedy came over.

And Sandra Day wasn't there, either.

Kennedy apparently was upset over being misled by the majority when he voted with them in Casey years ago.

Wonderful News!

It has long been my belief that if the “right” opinion on the “right” case to overturn Roe v. Wade came along that Kennedy would vote to overturn.

Yes!

5-4 decision. These decision are just too close. This is why it’s so important we nominate a conservative for president in 08 and not compromise on a moderate or liberal just because they are more popular with the media.

Unfortunately, it will take a lot more than this one instance to convince me that Kennedy has changed. Important to note that this decision outlaws a procedure, and not the overall “right” to have an abortion.

Still, another chip in the armor.

The opinion on this one will be interesting. Did Kennedy write for the majority?

This is why we need a TRUE, PRO-LIFE PRESIDENT! No pretender will do, and certainly NOT a pro-abortion president.

Rudy Giuliani will NOT cut it!

The SCOTUS can make a difference when it comes to abortion.

Thanks to pro-life Presidents Reagan, Bush41 and Bush43 the band on PBA is upheld. Thank God.

Maybe J.Kenendy is having second thoughts on his pro-choice position.

Next president WILL appoint a justice. There will probably be a democrat majority in congress. So we need a solid conservative who won’t be inclined to let the democrats pick which “strict constructionist” to appoint.

Rudy has shown that when there are obstacles in place to appointing good conservative justices, he is happy to go along with those obstacles so long as the justice meets his definition of “fair and honest”, which according to Rudy includes finding that Roe is settled law.

Too bad for Rudy Giuliani.

Can’t wait till he explains this.

“I supported Clinton’s veto of the partial birth ban. But I also support the decision to uphold the ban by Roberts and Alito.”
