Well, James Dobson finally got his payoff for getting George W. Bush re-elected in 2004. The Supreme Court has upheld a federal ban on partial-birth (aka late term) abortions, despite rulings from lower federal district and circuit corts that struck down the law as unconstitutional. Dahlia Lithwick hasn't posted her analysis on Slate yet; it will certainly give a better explanation of the reasoning behind the opinions. There will certainly be some political posturing over this one.
