Last week's decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to ban so-called partial birth abortion has sparked contentious discussion about the religious views of the nine justices who rendered the 5-4 ruling. A majority reportedly are Catholic

Among those who quickly pointed to the question as a legitimate issue is former University of Chicago Law School Dean Geoffrey Stone.
