South Dakota: Feel Free to Kill Doctors: Now that’s the way to protect life (?)

15 Feb

Wow! South Dakota’s Rep. Rep. Phil Jensen (R) has sponsored a bill that would make it legal to kill doctors that perform abortions, “that a homicide is permissible if committed by a person “while resisting an attempt to harm.” Well, that is an interesting way of preserving life (?) Does this mean that a woman’s father, mother, son, daughter, or husband can legally  kill anyone who tried to provide that woman an abortion—even if she wanted one? Click here to see the full article. Does anyone else think this is absolutely CRAZY?  As the GOP tries to redefine rape and as the House of Reps tries to cut funding to Planned Parenthood for providing birth control (click here to take action), now we are saying it is okay to commit homicide?

    The ‘preserving’ life defense has been attempted before by violent, doctor killing right-to-lifers and has failed time and time again. Generally, even the most hard core ‘pro-life’ individuals do not value the ‘life’ of a fetus above that of a grown human being – not in the concrete. It will be interesting to see how this develops… I suspect it’s not more than bone to his hard-right constituency, but it could get out of hand in the harshly conservative state.
