South Dakota Legislature Needs To Be Aborted Monday, March 06, 2006

South Dakota passed the an abortion bill and Governor Mike Rounds signed it into law. He signed his name and now the war is on.

I myself am pro-abortion. I don't like the term pro-choice or pro life really. I think abortion should be legal. The reason is because I believe women should have as much control over their bodies and their futures as males. One sticking point for this law is rape. The only exception to the rules is if the life of the mother is in danger. Rape and incest were not included in this legislation.

So let's consider the consequences. A young 12-year-old-girl is raped and turns up pregnant. Her life is most likely ruined. She's forced into having a child she is neither prepared for nor wants. She doesn't have the famlial structure to take care of the child. She's also stigmatized, even if she gives the child up for abortion.

There's so much more to say. Certainly abortion is a serious issue. But another consideration is simply that abortion has been around as long as humans have. Women find ways to get rid of the baby, one way or the other. They may elect to damage themselves in someway or simply leave it in a garbage can.

Roe V Wade needs to stand. It may not be the best answer to this problem but really, there is no other answer.
