SD shoots down anti-abortion bill

Once again, the leg-humping fundies hoping to overturn Roe v. Wade were handed their fat asses on a platter when the latest bill they attempted to get passed was shot down 8-1 by a state Senate Committee.

"PIERRE, S.D. — A South Dakota bill to ban most abortions in a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade appeared dead Wednesday after a state Senate committee rejected it.

The surprising 8-1 vote marked the third time in four years that measures to bar abortion in South Dakota were defeated. The Legislature passed an even stricter ban last year, but it was rejected by the voters in November.

Supporters had hoped to use the new law to prompt the U.S. Supreme Court to reconsider its 1973 ruling declaring the right to an abortion. Opponents argued the bill was so plainly unconstitutional the court probably wouldn't even consider the case."

There's a lesson here that would be picked up by anyone with a functioning brain. This is only, what, the 3rd time in 4 years that they've tried this and failed. But they won't get it, they'll be back again next year wasting the government's time and taxpayers' money on their crusade to stop degenerates from engaging in babyless fucking. We must. Stop. The fucking.

Now watch this drive.
