Finally, America has a Supreme Court. We no longer have a group of nine in black robes who modify the words of the Constitution at will, but we actually have a Supreme Court that will interpret the words of the Constitution and the will of its writers. In case you are unaware of today’s developments, I am refering to the decision announced by SCOTUS to uphold the ban on partial-birth abortions. We are finally making the critical first steps towards overturning Roe v. Wade.
It is troubling that he court seems to still recognize abortion as a Constitutional right, but this is progress. It will undobutedly take longer before we make major strides against sanctioned slaughter of innocents, we will need another pro-life justice, which seems unlikely to come until the next President takes office – at the earliest. Still, it is a victory for all of those who see life as valuable.
