South Dakota Opens Hunting Season on Doctors

“A law under consideration in South Dakota would expand the definition of ‘justifiable homicide’ to include killings that are intended to prevent harm to a fetus — a move that could make it legal to kill doctors who perform abortions. The Republican-backed legislation, House Bill 1171, has passed out of committee on a nine-to-three party-line vote, and is expected to face a floor vote in the state’s GOP-dominated House of Representatives soon.” The bill’s sponsor disputes that interpretation.

Dear South Dakota: if all the doctors move away or get shot, you’re not going to be very happy. Just sayin’.

Dear South Dakota doctors: I’d be packing up and moving somewhere a bit friendlier. Like Somalia. Less chance of getting shot, for one, and a more appreciative populace.
