Supreme Court Victory!

The Partial-Birth Abortion Ban has been upheld. From SCOTUSblog:

Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote for the majority in the first-ever decision by the Court to uphold a total ban on a specific abortion procedure — prompting the dissenters to argue that the Court was walking away from the defense of abortion rights that it had made since the original Roe v. Wade decision in 1973 recognized a constitutional right to end pregnancy medically.

Wow – this is a very, very good thing. The Court’s ruling can be downloaded here [PDF]. ***UPDATE, 12:50pm: My boss, Joe Scheidler, is doing a radio debate (apparently with at least one pro-abort) regarding the Supreme Court’s decision on a National Public Radio affiliate in Southern California just after 1:05pm today – about 15 minutes from now. You can listen live from the station’s website.
