Weiner v SCOTUS

Rep. Anthony Weiner wants to overturn the ban on late-term abortions, which was upheld today by the Supreme Court in a 5 to 4 decision.

In a letter to House Judiciary Committee chairman John Conyers, Weiner asked for “a hearing so that we can move to overturn the underlying ban on a certain type of late-term abortion.” He went on to call today’s ruling by the Supreme Court “an affront to women across the country.”
