Badlands, You Got to Avoid It Every Day

I never thought about living in South Dakota--it's not even interesting enough to be made fun of by the Coens in a movie--but the state is now permanently on my "snowball's chance in hell" list, and not just because it sounds like a boring hell and there are too many snowballs. Reuters reports:

South Dakota became the first U.S. state to pass a law banning abortion in virtually all cases, with the intention of forcing the Supreme Court to reconsider its 1973 decision legalizing the procedure.


Proposed amendments to the law to create exceptions to specifically protect the health of the mother, or in cases of rape or incest, were voted down. Also defeated was an amendment to put the proposal in the hands of voters.

New South Dakota state motto: "Where Fetuses Are More Valuable than Women--Half Will Be Men."

And if we don't go after all 7 "Dems" in the Gang of 14 who decided Alito wasn't worth a filibuster, we will get the terrible government we deserve.
