Death by a Thousand Cuts

As Churchill said of El Alamein: "Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."

The first tangible legal reversal of the Sexual Revolution has been achieved with the facial upholding of the Partial Birth Abortion Act of 2003 in the Supreme Court's ruling on Carhart v Gonzales.

National Review has the decision, written by Justice Kennedy.

Now this is a tenuous victory at best, since the Court's finding is mostly procedural, and another suit will presumably be brought as soon as the pro-brain suctioning groups can find a suitably telegenic test case, but it serves as a reminder of the extreme ends and reasoning which the Sexual Revolution ultimately demands in its total rebellion against tradition, biology and philosophy. It also serve to remind us that the commitment of Presidential candidates to the rule of law and faithful interpretation of law as written has life-and-death consequences.
