Kennedy, Roberts, Scalia, Alito, and Thomas, Esq., M.D.

Oh, goody. The Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the ban on intact dilation and extraction. As CNN so coyly worded it in their breaking news e-mail,
U.S. Supreme Court in a 5-4 ruling upholds a law banning what some call "partial birth" abortions.
"Some" meaning, of course, "religious fundamentalists hell-bent on demonizing all abortion by wrapping it in language guaranteed to tug on the heartstrings."

I'm so glad the justices are now also medical experts who are qualified to evaluate abortion procedures and determine that
the procedure is gruesome, inhumane and never medically necessary to preserve a woman's health. That statement was designed to overcome the health exception to restrictions that the court has demanded in abortion cases.
I am speechless, but probably not for long. Ann at Feministing is not.
