Majority: Roberts, Alito, Scalia, Thomas and Kennedy.
If you’ve come that far in a pregnancy and still don’t want to raise the child, you don’t have to. There are plenty of people who will gladly adopt and raise that child as their own.

Ann Althouse notes a commenter at Feministe who says get your abortion now because you’ll have one less option later on…
I left a comment there that is similar to what I wrote above, but has a little bit added:
My thought has always been if the mother is healthy enough for partial birth, how is she not healthy enough for full birth. You’re talking about a breech birth of the entire baby except the head with the D&X. Why not just go all the way. If she doesn’t want the baby there are plenty of people who do and will gladly take that child off her hands.
