South Dakota

Let's all take a moment to thank god we don't live in South Dakota, which just took it upon its backward-ass self to challenge Roe v. Wade by making it a crime for doctors to perform an abortion unless the mother's life is in danger. This is, of course, in direct violation of the US Supreme Court's 1973 ruling that all citizens have a constitutional right to privacy and that for women this right to privacy includes the right to terminate a pregnancy, but I think we've already established that religious fanatics don't let pesky little things like fundamental rights stand in their way.

Dude, your time and date stamp is wrong or drunk or something...isn't South Dakota the state that doesn't have any fence around one of its "maximum security" prisons? They must be drunk as hell

Well, I mean, all they have in those prisons is probably abortion doctors, and they're going to hell anyway, so big deal.
