Gov. Mike Rounds signed legislation Monday banning nearly all abortions in South Dakota, setting up a court fight aimed at challenging the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion.

The bill would make it a crime for doctors to perform an abortion unless the procedure was necessary to save the woman’s life. It would make no exception for cases of rape or incest.

Makes me pretty pissed at all those people who kept reassuring me, “You’re being hysterical. They’re never going to overturn Roe v. Wade. You feminists, getting all worked up about nothing.” And then they all went and voted Republican, patting themselves on the back for being so smart.

Yea, right.

This is how it’s done. I bet it’s going to ZOOOOOOM into the Supreme Court. I can see them all licking their lips already.
