Abortion Now Banned in Two States

Odd that this seems to have gotten almost NO attention in the MSM. The Democratic Governor of Louisiana, Kathleen Blanco, has signed an abortion ban into law. The law reportedly includes exceptions for "substantial risk of death" or to deter "serious permanent impairment of a life-sustaining organ." The article notes that the measure is similar to one enacted in South Dakota earlier this year, which is expected to be reviewed by the Supreme Court.

With the speculation that Roberts and Alito could both vote to overturn Roe vs. Wade, and the possibity that Bush will get another Supreme Court appointment, abortion may move back into prominence in the public debate soon.

Back to the top.
