...I mean, Alito's barely sworn in and already, South Dakota is working on eroding women's rights. This is from the Baptist Press, which I'm taking the liberty of quoting as I am, um, Baptist:
"In a direct challenge to the U.S. Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, the South Dakota House of Representatives easily passed a bill Feb. 9 that would ban nearly all abortions in the state."
Oh, and it gets better:
"Opponents of the bill tried unsuccessfully Feb. 9 to add an amendment making an exception for rape and incest."
Okay, my insomnia means that I am awake, but it does not imply that I am thinking cogently. There is so much that I want to say about this blatant disregard for privacy and freedom and control over one's own body, but I have to shape this pissed-off disbelief into words.
So, I'll address this tomorrow...right after I finish the intro to the next chapter of the DISSERTATION!!!
(That's how I feel about that thing, like it's big and looming and overshadowing my damn life.)
