Oh darn... I guess I'll have to stop going to South Dakota for my abortions now.

That's pretty exciting.  It's worth a watch.  What would happen if abortion wasn't part of the ticket?!?!?  That would be so exciting.  The repubs would probably split and we'd get dems all over the gov't.

Roe will never get overturned because the "goal" of overturning it 75% of the GOP playbook.

South Dakota's bill doesn't even have any provision for the mother's health, or for rape/incest (if this has been revised, let me know). 

There are several laws presently on the books that confer personhood to unborn fetuses.  Lacy's Law comes to mind, and is most problematic.

Not to mention the fact they're going to refuse to argue the Thompson argument.

explicate.

i am so sad that you're not looking at my probable as a possible.  :(

There's a very robust argument in bioethics that says even if you assume a fetus is a full-fledged person, that doesn't mean it has an automatic right to life at the expense of another person.  Sure enough, modern case law involving transplants (including one very dramatic case where a guy consented to give bone marrow and then decided not to after his cousin underwent the radiation therapy to kill the last of his cells) supports this argument.

But I have it on good authority that they're not going to argue this point.  It's one of those weird theories that virtually no pro-choicers or pro-lifers like, and no one really knows why.  (Oddly, the only people I do know who like it are vegetarians.  I'm sure it's a sampling issue, though.)

I don't understand how no one can like that argument, it makes perfect sense to me. Oh, wait, that's why they don't like it...it makes too much sense.  :-\

Actually I believe the SD bill only allows an abortion to save the life of the pregnant woman.

This is my take-


There are Jews in the world.
There are Buddhists.
There are Hindus and Mormons, and then
There are those that follow Mohammed, but
I've never been one of them.

I'm a Roman Catholic,
And have been since before I was born,
And the one thing they say about Catholics is:
They'll take you as soon as you're warm.

You don't have to be a six-footer.
You don't have to have a great brain.
You don't have to have any clothes on. You're
A Catholic the moment Dad came,

Because

Every sperm is sacred.
Every sperm is great.
If a sperm is wasted,
God gets quite irate.

Every sperm is sacred.
Every sperm is great.
If a sperm is wasted,
God gets quite irate.


Let the heathen spill theirs
On the dusty ground.
God shall make them pay for
Each sperm that can't be found.


Every sperm is wanted.
Every sperm is good.
Every sperm is needed
In your neighbourhood.


Hindu, Taoist, Mormon,
Spill theirs just anywhere,
But God loves those who treat their
Semen with more care.


Every sperm is sacred.
Every sperm is great.

If a sperm is wasted,...

...God get quite irate.


Every sperm is sacred.

Every sperm is good.

Every sperm is needed...

...In your neighbourhood!


Every sperm is useful.
Every sperm is fine.

God needs everybody's.
MO
Mine!

And mine!

And mine!


Let the Pagan spill theirs
O'er mountain, hill, and plain.
HOLY STATUES:
God shall strike them down for
Each sperm that's spilt in vain.


Every sperm is sacred.
Every sperm is good.
Every sperm is needed
In your neighbourhood.

Every sperm is sacred.
Every sperm is great.
If a sperm is wasted,
God gets quite iraaaaaate!
