Let's hear it for South Dakota lawmakers who passed and signed the abortion ban for that state. Some say it is a waste of time-that the Supreme Court will strike the law down. But I (who am I?) say it is not. You keep going back. You keep putting on the pressure. (As they used to say in one-on-one drills: You keep your feet moving.)

Of course our "pro-life" president "signalled his opposition to a South Dakota abortion ban that forbids the procedure even in cases of rape or incest, saying he favors such exceptions."

This position of "pro-life" politicians always has confused me. Their insistance on the 'exceptions' show either their inferior intellect and logic in reasoning moral issues, or show that to them abortion is just another issue to be compromised and spun. It is nonsensical to say an unborn baby is an individual with rights under our constitution unless the father is a criminal of a certain type-then the unborn baby is a blob of tissue with no rights. No wonder the forces of evil continue to win these battles. At least their position is consistent. We only want to get half-wet. I heard a speaker say once that abortion will never but defeated in this country until the "pro-lifers" stop using artifical contraception. Think about it....
