The Whole Shooting Match

I say, Politicians are stupid.

You say, Prove it.

I say, Okay, suck on this....

The South Dakota legislature recently had a committee look over a bill and approve it.  It is sponsored by Rep. Phil Jensen.  It changes the state's definition of justifiable homicide.  Wording is added that would justify homicide "while resisting an attempt to harm” that person's unborn child or the unborn child of that person's spouse, partner, parent, or child.

Now, you have ten seconds to guess what is wrong with the above....

Okay, pencils down.  Time's up.

If you answered, "This could be used to legally kill abortion providers," you win the game!  Make no mistake, it is a realistic threat.  Since 1993, eight doctors have been assassinated and another 17 have seen attempts made on their lives.

News wires picked this up yesterday, and today, Jensen told the Washington Post he's "looking at" some changes to protect abortion providers.  Ya think?

It appears this isn't an attempt to erode a woman's right to choose, just an attempt to extend law without considering how it might be abused.  But either way, this guy ain't looking any smarter.
