Fred Dalton Thompson Delivers Final Blow to Partial Birth Abortion

In the report of the Supreme Court decision upholding the ban on Partial Birth Abortion. Who should get credit for the make up of the court that led to a 5-4 decision? In the opinion of Brian's Blog, it is one Fred Dalton Thompson.

Had Fred Thompson been unsuccessful in shepherding the nomination of Chief Justice John Roberts the decision would not have been 5-4 as Roberts was one of the 5 to uphold the ban on this horrendous procedure.

Thank God for Fred Thompson's service.

I don't think there was any way for Roberts not to have been confirmed. 78-22 is a fairly healthy margin. But hey, whatever helps you hype your guy -- though I wouldn't have thought someone who believed in federalism would want the federal government to get involved in regulating physicians, a function of the states.
