South Dakota Gives The American Taliban What It Wants


by Steve


The South Dakota House today sent on to the governor a bill that would prohibit almost all abortions, and make any doctor a criminal for performing one except if the mother's life was in danger. This is exactly what the American Taliban wanted, with Alito now on the high court thanks to Joe Lieberman and Lincoln Chafee.

This bill will be signed and will take effect in July, and the expected legal challenge will make its way to the high court soon. I only hope the SCOTUS would take the case prior to the November 2006 election so that voters can see what they have installed in Washington, with polls showing that a majority want Roe kept in place. We will at least get a chance to see if Alito flat-out lied at his hearing prior to the 2008 presidential election, so that Democrats can point out the travesty of trusting GOP nominees to the high court, and the danger of electing GOP snakes in the Executive Branch.
