South Dakota Stands for Life

On Wednesday, the State Senate of South Dakota passed a bill that would outlaw abortion in all cases except to save the life of the mother. The State House is expected to pass the bill, whereupon it will go to Republican governor Michael Rounds for signature. It is hoped that the bill will become law and go into effect July 1. Doctors who perform abortions will be subject to up to five years in prison. The only uncertainty here is whether or not Gov. Rounds has the courage of his convictions (he vetoed similar legislation two years ago). I urge all to be in fervent prayer that Gov. Rounds chooses the lives of his smallest constituents over political expediency. There will be great pressure placed on him by pro-death groups, which advocate "choice" for women, but death for children.

This will no doubt come as a disappointment to people like Anne Lamott, who likened early stage fetuses to "sea-monkeys" (i.e., brine shrimp). With the appointment of Judge Alito, perhaps we may dare to hope for the dismantling of Roe v. Wade, and an end to the thirty-year long sacrifices to Moloch. Jesus loves the little children...alive.
