Who else here needs to vomit after reading this about South Dakota's abortion ban?

FRED DE SAM LAZARO: Napoli says most abortions are performed for what he calls "convenience." He insists that exceptions can be made for rape or incest under the provision that protects the mother's life. I asked him for a scenario in which an exception may be invoked.

BILL NAPOLI: A real-life description to me would be a rape victim, brutally raped, savaged. The girl was a virgin. She was religious. She planned on saving her virginity until she was married. She was brutalized and raped, sodomized as bad as you can possibly make it, and is impregnated. I mean, that girl could be so messed up, physically and psychologically, that carrying that child could very well threaten her life.

Hell, if she wasn't sodomized "as bad as you can possibly make it", then an abortion is just "convenient", right?

I have a picture of what these people are going to be subject to in Hell, and coincidentally, it is akin to Napoli's little "story".

People are referring to this South Dakota Law as the Rapist Rights Act... and that is who it seems to be protecting.
