Unsurprisingly, the “partial-birth abortion ban” passed the Senate 64-33. I’ve blogged some about this bill earlier this week, and I plan another post or two on the subject this weekend.
In the meanwhile, a few links you can check out:
- Who do you trust to make your medical decisions; Senator Rick Santorum or the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists?
- In a similar vein, this LA Times article focuses on doctors’ objections to the ban. (Via How Appealing.)
- Check to see how your senators voted. Update: Via Tom Tomorrow, check out the list of Democrats who voted for the PBA ban.
- Jesus’ General has a proposal for protecting fetuses once and for all: “it’s time to arm Fetus-Americans. It’s the only way we’ll ever be able to guarantee their safety.”
So what happens next? The ban goes to the House, which will pass it, and then it’ll be signed into law by Bush. Then someone sues and we all wait to see what the Supreme Court makes of it.
