That's sure to work...

Oh South Dakota, what are you doing? South Dakota is on its way to banning abortion except to save the life of the mother. (Read here.)

Do I think abortion is a great idea? Generally, no. Do I think it should be illegal? Absolutely not. Will making abortion illegal solve the underlying problem -- unwanted pregnancies? No. But, it's so much easier to ban abortions than to address the underlying problem. And you can stand up and look all moral and mighty! And, the other way is so much work.

This is so typical for fundamentalists -- of any stripe. Fundamentalists operate from the position that they are always right. Period. If you don't believe the same things, we'll you're just wrong. Or evil. If that doesn't make your blood boil, how about the way they want to dominate women -- reproductively and otherwise? The far right. Our very own Taliban.
