And what of Roe v. Wade?

A Reversal is not Imminent:

In 2000, the Supreme Court struck down the Nebraska's so-called partial-birth abortion ban. While that case was decided by a 5-4 margin, it's important to read the dicta in that case. While Thomas, Rehnquist and Scalia all noted that Roe v. Wade should be overturned, Justice Kennedy (a Reagan appointee) noted it should not. Thus, the curent Roe majority on the court is 6-3. Justice O'Connor's retirement doesn't necessarily help on this issue, but for now, it is not the end of a women's right to choose.


A good summary on (It's related to the 2004 presidential campaign, but it is enlightening).
