Supreme Court upholds Abortion Dispute
According to an AP Wire story that appeared in the New York Times and the Star Tribune, as well as many others, the US Supreme Court has ruled to uphold 2003's Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act, a small victory for conservatives.
According to the article: "It was the first time the court banned a specific procedure in a case over how -- not whether -- to perform an abortion."
"The outcome is likely to spur efforts at the state level to place more restrictions on abortions."
The story is a big one for those involved in women's rights as well as those on the religious fronts.
The ruling was voted at 5-4.
I was a little surprised that I didn't see anything related to the vote in the Pioneer Press, but I was glad that one of the two papers had printed the article.
