Supreme Court abortion case in the blawgosphere

There is much on the law blogosphere today on the Supreme Court's ruling in the "partial birth" abortion case, Gonzales v. Carnhart(pdf).

Of particular interest to legal historians may be Marty Lederman's post on the case as a reflection of the impact of Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's retirement.

Also of interest: Jack Balkin himself, at Balkinization.

SCOTUS Blog has news, analysis, more analysis, and even a blog round-up on the case.

New York Times coverage is here.

There is some loose talk out there on historical analogies/Bradwell v. Illinois, etc., but I think we'll wait for the historians to weigh in on that.
