PRO-LIFERS PREVENT BUST OF BLACKMUN IN MINNESOTA CAPITOL

    ST. PAUL, Minnesota (CWNews.com) - Pro-life members of Minnesota's Legislature have blocked the placement of a bust of the late Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun in the state Capitol because he wrote the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion.

    The privately-financed bust of the native Minnesotan would have been placed outside the Supreme Court chambers in the Capitol. But now the St. Paul City Council has unanimously voted to offer to display the bust in City Hall. "(Blackmun) should be honored, end of discussion," said City Council member Kathy Lantry, who proposed the resolution. "It's 'local boy made good.' If the state is going to have partisan politics, we should step in."

    A final effort to put the statue in the Capitol may still pass because the state Senate included authorization in a broad bill.
