Just Because I Like An Idea...

... doesn't mean a law implementing it is constitutional. Marc laments the ruling which overturned the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban. The judge did the right thing for the wrong reason. I wish every state had outlawed Partial-Birth Abortion, or that Congress had done so based on the civil rights of the child. But Congress tried to regulate abortions based on the idea that abortions were interstate commerce. Wrong. We would be better off if our Presidents, Congress and the courts understood that they are supposed to obey the Constitution, not evade it.

An Article dodger is worse than a draft dodger.
