Woo Hoo!! Supreme Court Willing to Overturn Precedent

Just when you thought the Scott Brown election was the top pro-life event of the past week, there is even better news.  According to Politico, pro-aborts are quaking in their boots after Thursday's decision by the Supreme Court to overturn a 100 year old ban on corporate political contributions.
“It is worrisome beyond the direct impact of yesterday’s ruling on election law,” said, Jessica Arons, the director of the Women’s Health and Rights Program at the Center for American Progress. It’s certainly cause for concern.”
As Politico reports:

Critics said the court’s 5-4 ruling in the Citizens United case Thursday declared unconstitutional a law which has been in place since 1907 barring corporations from involvement in federal elections. Just six years ago, the Supreme Court called the longstanding ban “firmly embedded in our law.” Now, it’s gone.  Abortion rights advocates said the willingness of the court’s majority to toss aside precedent undercut Chief Justice John Roberts’s assurances at his confirmation hearings in 2005 that he would tread lightly when it came to rulings like Roe v. Wade.
