Coat Hanger Mail--Send a Message to SD

Send an unmistakable message to the radical Christianist freedom-hating misogynist government of South Dakota. That benighted state, in case you've been under a rock or in solitary confinement, just outlawed ALL abortions except those necessary to save the life of the mother. No exceptions for rape, incest or the health of the mother. Doctors who perform abortions are subject to more prison time than the "funny uncle" who muscled his way into his 15-year-old niece in the first place.

Isn't anyone bothered by this? If you are, send a message to the knuckledragging SD governor by mailing a wire coat hanger or a knitting needle to:

Office of the Governor
500 E. Capitol Ave.
Pierre SD 57501

BTW, a note for you younger readers: the wire coat hanger and the knitting needle were the private medical instruments of "choice" to induce an abortion in the dark days before Roe v. Wade; these South Dakota asshole yokels apparently don't realize -- or don't care -- that outlawing abortion will not eliminate it -- it will just drive it back underground, where dangerous procedures by medical amateurs using septic instruments will result in, ironically, more deaths.

So I guess a smart doctor and a clever lawyer could conceivably argue the case that, because illegal back-alley abortions will result in a sharp increase in the deaths of the mothers, an abortion performed by a licensed physician under sanitary conditions would therefore, ipso facto, become necessary to save the life of the mother, thereby meeting the letter of the law when it comes to applying the Draconian requirements of the South Dakota legislation.

Interesting argument, isn't it? I think it could work.

Mr. anonymous doesn't seem to realize that half the population are women. We care a lot about the South Dorkota law. As they chip away rights here and there, fascism comes to power not with a bang, but with a whimper.

I know women who had illegal abortions back in the day and I've worked in abortion clinics. I know which method is infinitely preferable over the other.

nolawitch,
You don't even have a blog page so i wouldn't run your womp if i were you. Also i don't care were you work, since you are on walfare now.

"No one will read it"???
You are, anonymous asshole. I guess that makes you a Nobody. But I think we already knew that.
And where's your blog? Jerks like you are really brave in cyberspace, as long as no one knows your identity.
Oh, and maybe you need to use that fine invention of the digital age known as spell check: "walfare"?
You are no doubt a fine product of a Christianist private education. Your mother must be so proud of you. Too bad she didn't have access to a wire coat hanger 15 years ago when she was pregnant with you. She could have saved the Internets from your puerile drivel.
Moron.

Interesting how they don't have the courage to have a link? Good old anonymous is everywhere spewing ignorance. They've shown up over on ours as well.

farnsworth,
Your the morom for going into the service in the first place. Now your a pissed veteran, ha ha.

"your the morom"???
Now it's not only spelling but grammar. If your parents paid for that education, maybe it's not too late for them to get their money back.
It's pathetic, really, how we allow pure idiots to have a computer and access to the Internets.
Come back when you grow a pair of balls, anonymous, when you can stand up and fight like a man.
In the meantime, see Rule #2: I refuse to engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed man.
BTW, anonymous, despite your feeble protestations that "no one will read it", I see that you're still here.
Is this a case of your lips saying "no no no" while your eyes are saying "yes yes yes"?
If you can't win a debate with me, a former resident of Knuckledrag, Oklahoma, with an IQ of only 63, how can you expect to play in the Big Game?
Still a "morom", are you?

Tis amazing, how the god fearing christian uses the tools of the supposed devil. Hiding in deceit!

Are all religions like that? Practice what you are not supposed to do according to your religion.

"Anonymous" can't get enough abuse. He's still hanging around. I think he has some pathetic need to be abused. Probably fetal alcohol syndrome coupled with a bladder-control problem caused by faulty toilet training.
Anonmymous, see rule #2 and then go ask your mother some pointed questions.
