I ask, why were the Democ-rats on a high blood pressure trip during the Supreme Court confirmation hearings of John Robetrs and Sam Alito? If they only knew the Court was on their side! Five Catholics on the bench. Woo-hoo, we've finally made it and turn things around. Think again.
U.S. high court firm on '73 abortion case

WASHINGTON (UPI) -- The U.S. Supreme Court has upheld a 1973 ruling and denied an appeal from a Georgia woman who was granted an abortion in a landmark ruling.
Sandra Cano of Atlanta was the "Mary Doe" in the Doe vs. Bolton case which was a companion suit to the Roe vs. Wade appeal the court upheld on Jan. 22, 1973, CNN said.
The Roe ruling threw out most state restrictions on abortion but the Doe decision permitted abortions through all nine months of pregnancy.
Now, Cano said she never wanted an abortion in the first place and was bullied by her lawyer into pressing on with the appeal while she was living in an abusive relationship.
However, without issuing any comment or noting any dissent, the high court refused to revisit the case.
In February, the court also refused to reopen the Roe vs. Wade appeal, in which Norma McCorvey, the "Jane Roe" Texas resident also sought to overturn the case that gave her the right to an abortion.
