Monosyllabic Pedantry

That didn't take long

The jackass conservatives are trying to pass a law in South Dakota that essentially bans abortion. They would only allow it if the mother's life is in jeopardy. Felony charges would be filed against any doctor that broke the law.

There currently is only one clinic in South Dakota that performs abortions, and they have to fly the doctors in from Minnesota.

The morons must have relied on CBS for their news, because they are convinced that they just have to take it to the Supreme Court and those new neocons, Roberts and Alito, will overturn Roe V Wade for them.


I heard on NPR last night that the SD law also specifies that "life begins at conception", thereby making several kinds of birth control also illegal. These would include the expected "Plan B" types like RU486, but also IUDs (does anybody still use them?).


  • In my fantasy world abortion providers would take a page from militant gays and just start outing the anti-abortion folks who come in or bring their daughters in for abortions. In the US, about one in sixty-five women has an abortion every year. Those aren't all hippie liberals and I'd love for the whole country to really see how many people think it's fine for them to have abortions, because they really need them, but not for anyone else.
