Now that their controversial "First thing we'll do is kill all the abortion providers" bill has been shelved indefinitely, South Dakota lawmakers are back doing what they do best: making it just as hard as possible for women to exercise, or even have, reproductive rights, because, in the eyes of said lawmakers, women are chattel.
The internet is straight blowing up at the news on Tuesday that lawmakers in South Dakota are mulling a piece of legislation that would seem to make it legally permissible to kill abortion providers. Says Vicki Saporta, the head of the National Abortion Federation, "The bill in South Dakota is an invitation to murder abortion providers." The bill's sponsor, state Rep. Phil Jensen, spoke to The Plum Line's Greg Sargent this morning, and guess what? He feels his law is being badly misinterpreted!
