Anything worth talking about, is worth blogging about

Credit’s due where credit’s due. Via Pandagon comes some great news: that horrible anti-choice bill passed by the North Dakota House of Women Haters in February has been defeated in the state Senate, 29-16.

Speaking of the bill, Senator Curt Olafson, R-Edinburg, said (quoted from article and emphasis added):

[R]eaches far beyond protecting human rights” into unrelated consequence because it declares all fertilized embryos persons for the purposes of myriad laws that have nothing to do protecting human rights.

A physician “[F]aces an impossible dilemma” if needing to treat a pregnant woman for cancer that could harm a fetus or embryo, or a woman experiencing an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy….

At least not every politician in North Dakota would rather women die of fucking cancer than not give birth.

Update: Link to news article fixed.
