Bush already asking SCOTUS to attack abortion

The government's appeal asks the high court to overturn the decision of a U.S. appeals court in St. Louis, which struck down the law as unconstitutional.
The dispute over this type of procedure -- known medically as intact dilation and extraction and called "partial-birth abortion" by critics -- amounts to a rerun of a case heard five years ago by the high court. However, the outcome is in doubt this time because the makeup of the court is changing.
In 2000, the justices ruled 5 to 4 to strike down a Nebraska law that made it a crime for a doctor to remove much of a fetus intact during a midterm abortion. This procedure is used by some doctors who perform abortions in the fifth or sixth month of a pregnancy.
In the past, the Supreme Court had said that women could choose to end their pregnancies until the time a fetus could live on its own, which occurs after the sixth month. These later-term abortions are more complicated and only a few doctors perform them.
That's it...it is now time to call for ZERO TOLERANCE you either support a woman's right to choose or go to hell and not expect a penny or votes ... that means you Kaine, Casey , Taylor etc... this is getting beyond pathetic.
And now the weak Dems have put them selves into a corner ONCE AGAIN at protecting late term abortions... right before 2006 elections...wonder what lovely pictures the GOP will bring out AGAIN of dead babies...
... Fucking Geniuses
