Court to Hear PBA Case

The Supreme Court will decide the constitutionality of the Partial Birth Abortion ban.
The outcome will likely rest with the two men that President Bush has recently installed on the court. Justices had been split 5-4 in 2000 in striking down a state law, barring what critics call partial birth abortion because it lacked an exception to protect the health of the mother.
I just made a post about the Administration's push to get the Court to hear this. This case will tell us where Roberts and Alito stand. It's likely that arguments will be held in the beginning of the next term. In the event of another vacancy at the end of the term, this case could be even more interesting than it already is (and it's pretty damn interesting).
