High Court Backs Partial Birth Abortion Ban

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.

The outcome is likely to spur efforts at the state level to place more restrictions on abortions.

I should mention the bumpersticker is just an implementation of something I saw on The Donegal Express when Alito was confirmed to the bench. I thought it was so funny I decided to make it into a bumper sticker.
