South Dakota wankers

This isn't Minnesota, but it's our neighbor: as just about everybody knows, South Dakota has passed a certainly unconstitutional total ban on all abortions.

Of course, there are all the usual reasons to be pissed off about this, but here's my biggest: what's up with the "five years in jail" punishment? If these pro-lifers actually believe that a fetus has the same rights as any other post-delivery human being, which they claim to believe, then any doctor who performs an abortion should be charged with first-degree pre-meditated murder. And the mother, nurse, or anybody else who is involved with the abortion should be charged with being accomplices to first-degree murder, with maybe a conspiracy charge to boot. A fetus is a person, right? You kill a person intentionally you get charged with murder, right?

The fact that the law does not say this only shows that so-called pro-lifers really don't care about equating a fetus with you and I. This is all about politics and controlling women, and it is despicable.

Thank you for "getting it".

I'd suggest boycotting South Dakota, but I haven't been there since the mid-Eighties anyway.

Sure as hell won't go there now!
