JONATHAN ADLER takes on fair-weather federalists in the GOP, arguing in the National Review Online that a federal partial-birth abortion ban is beyond Congress’s enumerated powers. I agree, and I’m glad to see Adler making this point.

If you only believe in limited government as applied to laws you dislike, you don’t really believe in limited government at all. Adler deserves credit for reminding Republicans of this point. I think a lot more reminding is in order.
