Court Leaves Ala. Sex Toy Ban Intact

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The U.S. Supreme Court declined Monday to hear a challenge to Alabama's ban on the sale of sex toys, ending a nine-year legal battle and sending a warning to store owners to clean off their shelves.

An adult-store owner had asked the justices to throw out the law as an unconstitutional intrusion into the privacy of the bedroom. But the Supreme Court declined to hear the appeal, leaving intact a lower court ruling that upheld the law.

Sherri Williams, owner of Pleasures stores in Huntsville and Decatur, said she was disappointed, but plans to sue again on First Amendment free speech grounds.

"My motto has been they are going to have to pry this vibrator from my cold, dead hand. I refuse to give up," she said.

Sex toys are immoral.

Better we teach our kids to play with bombs, guns, automatic,,weapons, breast transplants, face lifts, prostitutes, 5 year olds and pornographic materials.

Or lead jewelry and toys, tainted food and nuclear fall out.

Or perhaps killing people all over the world for God and country?

Yes sex toys are the worst of the worst.

Though I never heard of anyone getting pregnant, aids or dying from them. :?
