Today, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in Gonzales v. Carhart to uphold the ban on partial birth abortions. In my opinion, this was the correct ruling. A partial birth abortion is done in the mid-term months and involves partially delivering the fetus and then crushing the skull to help it come out easier.
The people who would like to continue this say it is their constitutional right to do this. What part of the constitution allows this inhumane treatment of a living thing. It is not constitutional and the Supreme Court saw it that way.
After watching my kids grow in my wife's womb, I don't really see a need for abortion. The ultra-sounds that I saw show me that these fetuses are living and breathing humans and their life needs to be protected. What about their constitutional right?
To me, many of these people have abortions for convenience rather than a medical need. I think that if the life of the mother is in danger, then the doctor should do what needs to be done, but that should be the only reason.
Good job Supreme Court.
