The big battle begins
South Dakota Senate passes abortion bill that makes it a felony to provide an abortion to any woman except to save her life. It's posed as direct challenge Roe v. Wade, now that Alito and Roberts are on board the Supreme Court. The thinking, obviously, is that the balance has tipped. Let's all get ready to adopt all those babies in South Dakota born to women not willing or ready or able to care for them. Not that I want to think of OmegaDotter as a sexual being. But, y'know, when she becomes sexually active, I want her to have a choice as to whether to bear a child or not. Her. Not some some anonymous, faceless legislator who has never been scared and worried that her entire life is going to change because she went off to a party and some asshole popped a pill in her drink while she wasn't looking.
