Julie Saltman makes the case that the new abortion provision may run afoul
of the Constitution. But that seems to be the whole point, doesn't it? Slip in a minor anti-abortion provision into a big bill, watch it get struck down by the Supreme Court, and then wail on about goddamned activist judges? Envision the ads here: "Liberal judges are forcing
doctors to give abortions!" If I were a pro-life conservative, this is exactly the strategy I would devise.
