Information for Women in South-Wingukota  

Kottke offers guidance for those striving for independence in South-Wingukota:

Abortion manual for the women of South Dakota (kottke.org)
In reaction to the South Dakota Senate passing an abortion ban bill, a woman named Molly has posted an abortion manual for the women of South Dakota:

In the 1960s and early 1970s, when abortions were illegal in many places and expensive to get, an organization called Jane stepped up to the plate in the Chicago area. Jane initially hired an abortion doctor, but later they did the abortions themselves. They lost only one patient in 13,000 -- a lower death rate than that of giving live birth. The biggest obstacle they had, though, was the fact that until years into the operation, they thought of abortion as something only a doctor could do, something only the most trained specialist could perform without endangering the life of the woman.

Where will the Secretary of the Interior land after resigning her post? On a 1-10 scale, what level of conflict of interest will her new job have with her job that supposedly represented the American people?

Hap Corbett Rewards the Rapist 

Apparently, Hap Corbertt doesn't see a need for women to have a say in what happens within their own body after being raped.

Should we reward rapists?

No abortion exceptions

Several of your readers have objected to South Dakota's recently passed abortion law on the basis there is no exception for rape or incest. I have two questions for those readers:

• If a man were convicted of murder, would you approve of executing his child?

• If a man robbed a bank, would you approve of putting his child in prison?

The answer to both questions should be no -- and we should not kill unborn children because their fathers are guilty of rape or incest.
