Aborting Abortion

South Dakota wants to ban abortion. From the article:

A bill that would ban abortion in the state will be introduced within the next two days.

The bill will be called the Woman’s Health and Life Protection Act. It will ban abortion, but won’t prosecute a doctor who performs one to save a woman’s life.

I love that. They “won’t prosecute a doctor who performs one to save a woman’s life”. It’d still be illegal, but they just won’t prosecute. Yeah right. Few doctors are going to put their butts on the line to trust a prosecutor’s definition of “save a woman’s life”. I suspect the county prosecutor’s definition of “save a woman’s life” will be substantially less expansive than a doctor’s interpretation of that phrase.

Rep. Roger Hunt says, “Abortion should be banned.”

Hey, you’ve gotta give the guy credit for being blunt and honest. I like that in a politician.

Hunt says, “DNA testing now can establish the unborn child has a separate and distinct personality from the mother.”

You’ve also gotta give the guy credit for being a complete imbecile. What the heck does DNA testing have to do with establishing that a fetus has a “distinct personality”? Nothing, that’s what. Rep. Hunt is on crack.

a few weeks ago I heard some about this on NPR.  There is only one clinic in SD that does the procedure and the doctors come from other states one day a week to do it.

so they are pretty much there already.

Just to let y’all know…at church yesterday our pastor said there is a partial birth abortion case here in Nebraska either headed to the 8th circuit court of appeals or the supreme court…
