Killing partial-birth abortion

It was just what we pro-lifers were hoping for when Samuel Alito was confirmed for SCOTUS. By a 5-4 decision, the Court has upheld the federal ban on what medical textbooks euphemistically term "intact dilation and extraction."

Speaking for the minority, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg objected that the court "deprives women of the right to make an autonomous choice. . . . This way of thinking reflects ancient notions about women's place in the family and under the Constitution -- ideas that have long since been discredited."

Well, here's what the result of such an "autonomous choice" looks like:

I don't think one need favor keeping women pregnant and in the kitchen to ban that. Let's hope this is but the first step in returning the abortion issue to the people. They still have more sense than feminist lawyers, who know it. That's why the latter, and their Democratic allies, don't want to let them decide.
