South Dakota driving women out of state for medical care

If only there was a wall of separation between church and state in South Dakota.

"Pro-life" is simply code for white people breeding.

Rich women don't have to put up with this crap: they have full reproductive freedom while women at middle and lower income levels experience chilling effects on their rights. Women in South Dakota who can afford it simply jump on a plane and fly to Santa Fe, Minneapolis or Denver for their procedures. Imagine a woman in Standing Rock or Pine Ridge doing that.

Taxpayers are already funding some medical procedures that white Republicans object to.

No foetus in the US has any civil rights until the third trimester; but, it would be interesting to some to know how much South Dakota Right to Life has diverted to the lobbyists who drafted law to end victims’ rights in suing for clergy sex abuse cases.

But, applaud the nutball Republican efforts diverting attention from the party’s culture of corruption where murders and their covers up are commonplace by clogging the legislative session with christianic religionist argle-bargle.

It is time to test South Dakota's jurisdiction over nations where cannabis is legal and for tribal medical professionals to establish clinics that perform abortions on these non-contiguous parcels as islands of health care that supersede state law.
