The Square Circuit

Academia, parenthood, living in a bankrupt city, and what I read in the process.

south dakota and abortion

Some lefty political blog called "Taegan Goddard's Political Wire" notes that the approval ratings of South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds "plummeted" from 72% to 58% after he signed the bill banning essentially all abortions in SD. Is the 14% drop the story? Or the fact that 58% of the fine folks of SD still approve of him (and only 38% now disapprove)?

Everyone on the Web has already reprinted this, but I think I need to as well. South Dakota Republican State Senator Bill Napoli on what abortions he might potentially countenance: "A real-life description to me would be a rape victim, brutally raped, savaged. The girl was a virgin. She was religious. She planned on saving her virginity until she was married. She was brutalized and raped, sodomized as bad as you can possibly make it, and is impregnated. I mean, that girl could be so messed up, physically and psychologically, that carrying that child could very well threaten her life."

Do you think he writes these fantasies down, late at night? Eeeewww.

Those of you who don't attend church, or gave it up before marriage, you're on your own. I hear Minneapolis still has a Planned Parenthood. It's what, six hours from Sioux Falls?

    His description is powerful gross. I'm looking at you, Amsterdam, more and more these days.
