And so it begins

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear Gonzales v. Carhart, which will determine the constitutionality of the "Partial Birth Abortion Act of 2003." (again, there is no such medical procedure as a partial birth abortion. it's a dilation and extraction, damn it) Last time they heard a similar case the law was struck down 5-4. You guessed it, O'Connor was the deciding vote. As it stands, the Act does not allow for any exceptions taking into consideration the health of the woman. Of course not. We aren't human, we're just baby making machines.
