JUDGE BLOCKS ABORTION LAW
In a ruling that could have coast-to-coast effect, a federal judge Thursday blocked the government’s new ban on certain late-term abortions–the second court victory for abortion-rights advocates since President Bush signed the law.
This is actually a very good thing for both sides. It’s quite arguable that the law is indeed unconstitutional under current Supreme Court doctrine. So, the quicker the law gets on track for SCOTUS review, the better.
