Current SD Bill Would Legalize Killing Abortion Providers

The “murders” would be protected as “justifiable homicide”. According to Mother Jones , South Dakota State Rep Phil Jensen has sponsored a bill that would legalize the murder of abortion providers.

From Mother Jones:

“The original version of the bill did not include the language regarding the "unborn child"; it was pitched as a simple clarification of South Dakota's justifiable homicide law. Last week, however, the bill was "hoghoused"—a term used in South Dakota for heavily amending legislation in committee—in a little-noticed hearing. A parade of right-wing groups—the Family Heritage Alliance, Concerned Women for America, the South Dakota branch of Phyllis Schlafly's Eagle Forum, and a political action committee called Family Matters in South Dakota—all testified in favor of the amended version of the law.”

“The law that would legalize killing abortion providers is just one of several measures under consideration in the state that would create more obstacles for a woman seeking an abortion. Another proposed law, House Bill 1217, would force women to undergo counseling at a Crisis Pregnancy Center (CPC) before they can obtain an abortion. CPCs are not regulated and are generally run by anti-abortion Christian groups and staffed by volunteers—not doctors or nurses—with the goal of discouraging women from having abortions.”

This has to be without a doubt the most insane thing I’ve ever heard of. These people have lost their friggin minds! And it figures that the whacked out, gone down the road crazy, right wing Christian Jihad Coalition is behind it.

Here is a “Link”  to the actual bill that states:

“FOR AN ACT ENTITLED, An Act to expand the definition of justifiable homicide to provide for the protection of certain unborn children.
Section 1. That § 22-16-34 be amended to read as follows:
22-16-34. Homicide is justifiable if committed by any person while resisting any attempt to murder such person, or to harm the unborn child of such person in a manner and to a degree likely to result in the death of the unborn child, or to commit any felony upon him or her, or upon or in any dwelling house in which such person is.
Section 2. That § 22-16-35 be amended to read as follows:
22-16-35. Homicide is justifiable if committed by any person in the lawful defense of such person, or of his or her husband, wife, parent, child, master, mistress, or servant, or the unborn child of any such enumerated person, if there is reasonable ground to apprehend a design to commit a felony, or to do some great personal injury, and imminent danger of such design being accomplished.”

There is no way in hell this abomination will ever be passed. But people everywhere need to start paying very close attention to the religious affiliations of some of these insane people they are electing. These right wing Christian Jihadists are doing their dammedest to infiltrate our government, and impose their insanity on all of us. Just look at some of the recent comments and attendees of the 2011 CPAC convention.

Of course before the conference even began the religious bigots came out in full force to boycott the event because the organizers decided to include the homosexual group GOProud. Brian Fisher of the extremist religious cheerleading group “American Family Association” had a few words to say on the subject.

Of course this is the same Brian Fisher who said American Indians were mired in alcoholism and poverty because the refuse to come to Jeebus.

Then we have former Senator Rick Santorum who blasts gay marriage and says, “America belongs to God”.

Sorry Rick, This country belongs to the American People, all of them, including the homosexuals!

This Christian Jihad Collation is steadily assimilating as much of the GOP as they can get their hate filled paws on. They want to take away our constitutional rights, rule over our lives, and force us all to abide by “their” beliefs. They certainly have every intention of shoving all of the homosexuals back in their closets, or even outlawing homosexuality and putting them all in jail.

Here’s another one, Janet Folger Porter, from “Faith 2 Action” (Another CINO fringe group) from last October. In this video they are praying to get control of the government, and for and end to the separation of church and state.

Anyone out there worried about terrorist attacks from outside our borders, best be turning a quick eye to these (so-called) Christian terrorists from within.

  1. Killing abortionists in South Dakota? Last time I heard, SD wasn't exactly the most densely-populated state in the Union...
    Apparently they want to go back to the days when you couldn't even say “pregnant” in public (yeah, I'm that old), let alone anything about ending it.

    Has it ever occurred to these people that, if they expended more effort trying to prevent pregnancies, it wouldn't be necessary to come up with such insane proposals? I can't imagine there's all that many doctors in South Dakota either; this is a sure way to guarantee there would be even fewer.

    Basically, what these Christofascists are saying is: if you don't want to have kids, you shouldn't be having sex. That'll never work. Aside from growing grain and filling up old ICBM silos, what else is there to do in South Dakota, anyway?
