The South Dakota House is considering a bill that could “make it legal to kill doctors who perform abortions.” The GOP-backed bill, which passed out of committee, would alter that state’s definition of justifiable homicide to allow killing if committed by a person “while resisting an attempt to harm” that person’s unborn child or the unborn child of a person’s spouse, partner, parent, or child.Every time an abortion-provider is murdered, we wait in vain for all those allegedly "pro-life" Republicans to come out and say something about it. Crickets chirp, the wind whistles through the trees, the silence becomes deafening. Now, the last tattered remnants of "pro-life" are gone. We can see that it isn't "life" they support. It's the fetus. That's the only thing they care about. If some doctors have to die to protect a fetus, then that, apparently, is a price at least pro-fetus Republicans in South Dakota are willing to pay.
I wonder if any of the cowardly right-wingers who insist they think murdering abortion providers is wrong will stop over here and prove me wrong that (a) they aren't cowards; and (b) they oppose this bill.
