I'll Have What South Dakota's Having...

Riiiight. So the Governor of South Dakota has just signed into a law an almost-total ban on abortion in that state. It makes no distinction for cases of rape or incest; only for the "life of the mother."

One wonders if Governor Rounds has any women in his life whom he loves. I further wonder if Governor Rounds had a daughter who was impregnated by a rapist, whether he'd so blithely sign such a bill forcing her to give birth to the product of such a horrifying ordeal.

I also wonder whether Governor Rounds has a freakin' clue about Politics 101. Does he realize that he is pushing the envelope even for the "pro life" movement? A federal appeals court is going to issue an injunction on the South Dakota law, and the Supreme Court is going to refuse to review it, thereby *strengthening* Roe v. Wade.

So, to my pro-choice mind, I say "have at it Governor Rounds." Go for it. Make it a law. May you live to regret reinforcing Roe v. Wade with your stupid law, and may your daughter live to not need an exception to it.
