Pro-Life Victory

Wonderful news for the pro-life movement! The federal law banning Partial Birth Abortion has been upheld by the Supreme Court.,2933,266789,00.html

Read the entire opinions here:

Here's a quote that I really love:
"...the Court's abortion jurisprudence, including Casey and Roe v. Wade ... has no basis in the Constitution." (emphasis added)

This is why we voted for President Bush, twice. I don't agree with everything that he's done, or not done. But saving innocent lives is the most important thing in the world right now, and he has confirmed two very good, relatively young Supreme Court Justices in recent years, who will not distort the Constitution to support infanticide.

The next president may be a Democrat, or worse, a RINO (Guliani, McCain, etc.) God willing, we will get one more strict constructionist appointed before the end of President Bush's term. Kennedy is known as a swing vote, and he swung the right way this time - but will he go all the way and overturn Roe? If we're lucky, Justice John Paul Stevens will end his term soon - he's already 84 years old - by retirment or death, and President Bush can nominate yet another conservative to the bench.

(Now, I know judges are not affiliated with political parties. By "conservative" I don't mean "Republican", I mean "not liberal and inventing new rights out of thin air".)

So, that would give us a certain 5-4 pro-life majority, if not 6-3.

Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests For Life has said that children will not stop killing other children (Columbine, Virginia Tech, etc.) until parents first stop killing their own children.

Let us pray, and praise God for this first step in a long time toward truth and justice!!!
