Did you see the 4th Circuit’s decision on Wednesday upholding Virginia’s partial-birth abortion ban? Here’s my favorite passage from Judge Wilkinson:
The fact is that we-civilized people-are retreating to the haven of our Constitution to justify dismembering a partly born child and crushing its skull. Surely centuries hence, people will look back on this gruesome practice done in the name of fundamental law by a society of high achievement. And they will shudder.
