More reaction to partial birth abortion case

Not to be obnoxious, but we can tell how significant this is by who's appalled by it...

"Today's decision is alarming," Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote in dissent with justices Stephen Breyer, David Souter and John Paul Stevens. She said the ruling "refuses to take ... seriously" previous Supreme Court decisions on abortion.

Ginsburg said the latest decision "tolerates, indeed applauds, federal intervention to ban nationwide a procedure found necessary and proper in certain cases by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists."

"This ruling flies in the face of 30 years of Supreme Court precedent and the best interest of women's health and safety," Eve Gartner, deputy director of litigation and law for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said in a news release.

"Today, the court took away an important option for doctors who seek to provide the best and safest care to their patients," Gartner added. "This ruling tells women that politicians, not doctors, will make their health-care decisions for them."
