SD abortion.

That woman should be arrested. Why doesn't she worry about her own state, instead of crossing state lines for the sole purpose of breaking laws.

Do states or the feds issue medical licenses? If states issue the license, then she is breaking two laws.

The only question is, how long should she go to jail?

<b>Other</b>, as in the state should concern itself with things <b>other</b> than abortion, and let individuals decide for themselves what they can and can't do to their bodies.

SD passed a law, and she flies in from out of state just to break the law. I think the people of SD have spoken, and they know what they want.

No punishment what so ever. She's a true hero and freedom fighter. It's called civil disobedience folks.

Now there is one citizen that I'm proud to have as a fellow Minnesotan.

And yes...I'm serious.

Other - The stunning rebuke the Supreme Court will eventually give SD should be named after her.

The Legislature did it. It isn't so clear the people agree. In fact there is a petition drive to get a referendum on the ballot this fall.

Kind of a biased poll, don't you think. No points of view other than your own extremism. Thank ___ for Other.

I don't think the poll is turning out the way the OP had hoped.

I wonder who cast the sole vote for " Revoke license + felony jail time (more than 1 year)."

I'm really beginning to think Ill_Wind has to be putting us all on.

The law cannot be enforced even if and when it "goes into effect." My own state of Wisconsin has a pre-Roe anti-abortion law which has been dead since Roe even though it is still on the books.

Edit: 2 votes now for Ill_Wind's position.

That's probably Summer_Wind's vote. There used to be a poster on here that took extreme positions such as this posters. I wonder if they are the same person. I'm trying to remember their name.

I like the idea of states being able to decide stuff like this.

I'm not a big fan of Standard Definition Abortion. It should always be in OAR.

How can she be convicted of a crime if the issue of legality hasn't been decided before the Supreme Court.

And btw, the people of SD have not spoken.

I think it is great The state can pass any laws that they like, people will do what the need to do, go to other states, do it themself, or get it done by some one not quailfied. If men got pregnant this would not even be a law.

At least the OP included a wide variety of poll responses so everybody's view could be accurately represented!

I thought the same thing. It's the same as one of those "How many copies of Turner & Hooch SE dvd will you get?" thread.


just one? 10? 25? 1000?

Not true... this is not a male versus female topic.

The people of SD have spoken. The problem is people from other states entering SD to break the law. If the people of SD wanted abortions, wouldn't there be a doctor living in SD to challenge the law?

I can't find the link, but I've read that protesters from other states are being bussed in SD, and that some out of staters will try and vote in the SD referendum.

I wonder how pro-life people would feel if SD bussed in voters to California or New York to outlaw abortions there?
