Two Views of the Supreme Court's Decision on "Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania V. Casey."

Two views of the Supreme Court's decision on "Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania V. Casey," the latest case that brought Roe V. Wade, and a woman's right to an abortion, into question. They'll react to the Court's decision to uphold most of the Pennsylvania restrictions, including parental notification for minors, a 24-hour waiting period, and provision of information about the development of the fetus and alternatives to abortion. The Supreme Court felt that notification of a husband was an undue burden, and that the precedent set by Roe V. Wade in 1973 should be upheld.: 1) Kathryn Kolbert is the attorney who challenged Pennsylvania's restrictions on abortion, arguing the case before the Supreme Court. She is also the Vice President of the newly established Center for Reproductive Law and Policy.2) David Wagner, the Editorial Director of the Family Research Council, speaks for the pro-life side. Prior to joining PRC, he was a speech and op-ed writer with the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Public Affairs, writing for the Attorney General and other high department officials.
