PBA Ruling is Not a Pro-Life VictoryPastor Bob Enyart / The Covenant News:
Shirley Dobson said it correctly to talk show host Hugh Hewitt the day after the ruling, that pro-life organizations have fought "for fifteen years" to achieve this partial-birth abortion ban. The tragedy, which she was unaware of, but which Hewitt as a lawyer should have known, is that not a single abortion, late-term or otherwise, has been or will be, canceled due to this ban.
Supreme Court Split 7-2 - Pro-Abortion MajorityChristian Gallery Editorial:
Why Court's Confusing Partial Birth Abortion Decision Can Kill Babies By the Millions - A brief added to the partial birth abortion decision by Justices Thomas and Scalia helps us see the true meaning of the Court's decision. If you will study the brief added by those two Justices, it will become obvious that instead of the recent decision showing a 5-4 Supreme Court split in favor of overturning legalized abortion, the recent ruling actually reveals that the Supreme Court as presently constituted is split 7-2, with the majority composed of Supreme Court Justices who have no intention whatsoever of overturning Roe v. Wade. Why is Justices Scalia and Thomas's brief so revealing, so significant? Listen to what Justice Thomas wrote, with Scalia agreeing, "I write separately to reiterate my view that the Court's abortion jurisprudence, including Casey and Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973) has no basis in the Constitution."
On The Partial Birth Abortion RulingChuck Baldwin / The Covenant News:
In responding to the euphoria of many pro-life groups' claiming that the PBA decision has begun the legal process of overturning Roe, the Mobile Press-Register said, "The court has done no such thing; and in the majority opinion, justices pointed out that the ban doesn't violate a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy." The Press-Register got it exactly right.
