Roe v. Wade: Lock and Load in South Dakota

Posted by Mark on February 23, 2006

Well, here we go. All that’s needed is the Governor’s signature, and South Dakota becomes the first state to ban abortion since Roe v. Wade was decided. How did Tom Daschle remain a Senator in that state for so long?

    Mark,
    Nice change huh? One state at a time my friend.

  2. Good luck with it, Mark, but I wouldn’t hold my breath on getting Roe v. Wade overturned. Just so you know, as far as my OWN personal, religious beliefs and convictions go, abortion under almost any circumstance is wrong, wrong, WRONG. Also, once a fetus is obviously humanlike in appearance to any observer, it should be clearly obvious to anybody that they are looking at a baby, and killing it for any reason other than to save a mother’s life should be a criminal act.

    Last but not least; I even believe that a human life (as opposed to just a blob of living cells) begins at conception. But without absolute, concrete, conclusive, scientific proof of this, we’ve got that pesky little sep of church and state thingie to worry about. And that is a biggie, my friend, or all abortions under every circumstance would have long ago been illegal.

    As for my other points of view on the subject, you’ve already read them at The GTL, so I’ll spare you and your readers.

    In closing, I’d like to tell you that I appreciate your conviction to your beliefs and ideology when there are so many phonies out there on both sides of the aisle. This is one reason you are in my blogroll and will remain there, my friend.

    Blog ON…

    I saw this in the news this morning and couldn’t be more THRILLED!!! :0)

    As it should be, the ONLY time an abortion should be sought out or rendered is in the case of the mother’s life being in danger.. and personally, I think most momma’s would still prefer that their child have the opportunity to live, even so.

    I will be watching this one carefully!

    Nice change, indeed, Craig
    We’ll see GTL. This stopped being a religious issue long ago. With the recent advances in neo-natal medicine, including video images in the womb, Roe v. Wade has become outdated policy based on 35 year old science.

    And Nariel, it is a remarkable decision for South Dakota to make. We’ll see if all the hard work Conservatives have put in getting Judicial nominees through pays off now.
