"The Supreme Court upheld the nationwide ban on a controversial abortion procedure Wednesday, handing abortion opponents the long- awaited victory they expected from a more conservative bench.

The 5-4 ruling said the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act that Congress passed and President Bush signed into law in 2003 does not violate a woman's constitutional right to an abortion. "

It will be interesting to see how Rudy Giuliani reacts to this ruling.  For his sake -- hopefully better than the last few times he was put on the spot regarding the issue of abortion.
