Well, they've got another foot in the door with their interference with private medical procedures (uh, concerning women's "private partes"). I hope this isn't one of those "slippery slope" thingies, but apparently Kennedy's supposed to vote with the conservatives, because he's a "Roman Catholic Reagan nominee":

Abortion cases are difficult for the court, and in the past they've been particularly trying for Kennedy. He agonized over his 1992 vote to reaffirm a woman's right to abortion. That decision enraged conservatives, who had expected the Roman Catholic Reagan nominee to help overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 case that established a constitutional right to privacy that protects abortion rights.

Well, they should be happier this time.

I still fear that the religious right will succeed in reversing Roe v. Wade.  It will set women back to the days of back street alley abortions with coat hangers.    :Neutral:
