This post by SusanG on the Daily Kos about the South Dakota abortion ban is very, very angry and very, very brilliant. Read.
In South Dakota, I Am Disposable
Imagine this: One day you wake up and discover an entire state has passed a law that declares you are worthless.
You are no longer a person. You are a package – a package for a potential person. Picture the styrofoam Big Mac carton tumbling along the shoulder of the interstate. Remember the discarded, dented Budweiser can you kicked aside at the campground to pitch a tent. Recall the time you scraped a month-old Popsicle wrapper from the side of your garbage can. That's you.
The full thing's well worth a look.
