This is in a medical journal why?

A few doctors have published an attack on the Supreme Court’s partial birth abortion ban. This is based on their professional opinion on privacy rights and the constitutionality of the law. In fact it isn’t even discussing the medical issues of the no “mother’s health” exemption. It is simply attacking the court because by making this decision which, they don’t seem to argue the constitutionality of they might allow Congress to enter onto a slippery slope with results these doctors don’t like. This is a perfectly reasonable and widely held view, but it doesn’t belong in a medical journal. For the New England Journal of Medicine to publish the screed gives the impression that these people are speaking as doctors, when really they are talking as Democrats.
