South Dakota: Women's Rights Diminished

I think that my blood may have just stopped boiling long enough for me to discuss the recent abortion ban in State of South Dakota. Is this 2006 or 1946? I am confused.

Mn_abortionsdgov104_1 So, please take a good look at the man to the right. Memorize his face. He is starting a revolution. Right here, right now.

What’s worse the ban or the seemingly little opposition from women? Where is the rallying cry? Where is our demonstration of free speech and outrage at this ass backwards ban? How can we accept this?

Do you want to join the fight that will surely take this all the way to the Supreme Court? The first step is to make a donation to Planned Parenthood.

Brace yourselves, the Roe v. Wade is coming NOW. Will you stand up and be counted? Or will you sit silently on your couch letting it happen?

Considering how long it took you to comment on this is a testament to how much it pissed you off.
I'm still recoiling in disbelief that this is happening in my lifetime.

Turn words into actions.

I will, if you will.

I'm totally tired of these misguided men who, for some reason, think they know enough about women to make our decisions for us. I think it's time for another March for Women's Lives. I'd also suggest a boycott on the state of South Dakota but what are we going to boycott? Corn? And who the hell has ever been to S.D. anyway? In addition to planned parenthood check out NARAL www.naral.org.

I want to pass a law making men have to carry any unwanted pregnancies in their bodies. I can think of a few choice places.

The question I have, like Ann points out above, is what do we do that really has an effect? We can march, but they seem to have become immune to that for the most part. (See every pas march in the pas 6 years or so.)

Bleh.

Ann, we can boycott any manufacturer or vendor who does business in South Dakota. In fact, because of its banking laws, a lot of credit card companies, like Citibank, do business out of S.D. I think boycotting a few financial services firms would start the ball rolling.

Good point, Sourkraut! I have a Citibank card and I think it may be time to change cards. I'm going to have to pay more attention to those kind of things.

The question I have is whether or not South Dakota still allows men to have vasectomies.

Because when you think about it, that's a lot of potential fetuses killed with each non-ejaculation.

Just saying.

Peace,
