Abortion and the Supreme Court

Posted by Jack Stephens on April 18, 2007

Ann writes about the recent Supreme Court decision on the banning of certain abortion procedures in the blog Feministing:

Justice Ginsburg penned a moving dissent from today’s Supreme Court opinion upholding the Federal Abortion Ban. Some highlights:

Today’s decision is alarming. It refuses to take Casey and Stenberg seriously. It tolerates, indeed applauds federal intervention to ban nationwide a procedure found necessary and proper in certain cases by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). It blurs the line, firmly drawn in Casey, between previability and postviability abortions. And, for the first time since Roe, the Court blesses a prohibition with no exception safeguarding a woman’s health.
