The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has voted to uphold the ban on so-called “partial-birth abortions” (some forms of intact dilation and extraction) with a majority of five votes to four. All five of the votes in favor of the ban came from the justices who identify themselves as Catholic. The full text of the ruling (PDF) includes the dissenting opinion, which features a strenuous objection from Justice Ginsburg in which she says the court “deprives women of the right to make an autonomous choice, even at the expense of their safety.”
This gives our first real taste of what it is like to have cases decided by the “morality” dictated by the Vatican, rather than by a correct interpretation of The Constitution. Expect to see further erosion of the rights of women, homosexuals, atheists and any other non-Catholic Americans.
