The all powerful Religious Right Marches ON!

From The Washington Times:

The Supreme Court yesterday without comment declined to reinstate an Idaho law that required girls under age 18 to have permission from their parents to get an abortion legally.
    The rejection marked the second time in as many months that the high court has declined to weigh in on abortion matters. Last month, the justices refused to reopen Roe v. Wade, the landmark case that legalized abortion nationwide in 1973.
    Yesterday's development effectively lets stand a ruling by San Francisco's 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to permit teenage girls in Idaho to have abortions without their parents' permission. The Idaho law allowed abortions for minors without permission only in cases of extreme medical emergency.

Yes ... fear us ... the all powerful RELIGIOUS RIGHT.

Next on the agenda? Teeneage girls will no longer have to seek parental permission to stay out after 11 pm. Developing.
