The South Dakota House of Representatives have approved a bill that would ban abortion in the state. The bill would outlaw abortion unless a mother's life is in danger, with no exceptions for rape victims or women that would have permanent serious health problems by giving birth.
The bill passed the House 54-15.
Not only are they blatantly ignoring firmly established Supreme Court precedent (Roe v Wade), they are wasting the taxpayers money defending a bill that will definitely be struck down.
I'd write more to express my outrage, but words fail me right now. What next ... Race-based restrictive covenants become legal again in Mississippi? Missouri relegalizes slave ownership? Georgia passes a bill to make the Southern Baptist faith the state religion? Let's just all regress to 1850, and give a middle finger to the Supreme Court and the Constitution in the process.
