Response: Letter to editor regarding South Dakota law.

Text from Bellingham Herald Letters to the Editor:

The Legislature in the state of South Dakota has just passed legislation making all “abortions” illegal. This legislation should alarm all parents of young girls.
Girls as young as 10 years old can be impregnated by relatives such as fathers, brothers, grandfathers, uncles or cousins. Young boys, such as neighbors or young boyfrields, can also impregnate young girls.
Any doctor who would perform a procedure to remove the embryo from her womb would be put in jail for five years under the South Dakota law

Text from South Dakota law:

No licensed physician who performs a medical procedure designed or intended to prevent the death of a pregnant mother is guilty of violating section 2 of this Act. However, the physician shall make reasonable medical efforts under the circumstances to preserve both the life of the mother and the life of her unborn child in a manner consistent with conventional medical practice.

Medical treatment provided to the mother by a licensed physician which results in the accidental or unintentional injury or death to the unborn child is not a violation of this statute.

Text from Wally’s head:

Wally wonders why this is in the Herald. I’ve made claims in letter to the editor. I’ve also been asked for supporting facts. Well this person claims that “any” doctor would be jailed for performing “procedure. Read the law. It doesn’t say “any” doctor. It says only doctors that do it when there is no threat to the mother’s life.

I like this law. It’s simple and to the point. If your intent is to kill then you will be dealt with by the law. If you’re a licensed doctor and your intent is to save lives, but you can’t, then you will not be punished for trying to save one life over another.

Wally wonders why Pro-Death isn’t the mantra of abortion activist? And if Pro-Choice mostly means choice to kill millions of babies, then why not Pro-Killing Babies? Well no, that’s just too long. :)
