Again. Wish we were kidding. Katie McDonough over at Salon has the sorry tale of the local loons in North Dakota who will next want to make flirting grounds for a POP GOP Trans-Vaginal Sound. Hang onto your knickers, sisters. Pro Life may stop at the business end of the womb, but the GOP will regulate every instant before that baby draws a breath and has a need.
Anti-choice pseudoscience hits a new low: North Dakota argues that viability begins at conception North Dakota is developing a legal strategy to strike at the very heart of Roe v. Wade. It's a terrifying prospect. In its defense of the ban, state attorneys submitted an affidavit from Dr. Jerry M. Obritsch, an OB-GYN based out of Bismark who believes that because embryos can survive in a test tube for a few days as part of the process of in vitro fertilization that “an unborn child is viable … from the time of conception.”
#Whiplash. Tweeted the Sci Fi Salon link immediately - wouldn't you? To give the like-minded Oklahoma Regressives their due, it's not been long since they tried to make abortion illegal if a fetal heartbeat could be
sensed detected ~ they are frothing at the mouth … and willing to go as low as they can lim-bo.

This lady had it so right it was a Huzzah(!) moment! If I had had the guts in my D.C. days, that placard would have gone for a walk or two.
Of course, the next step WAS inevitable … Bravo to the Twitter comic, and you have to wonder if it's Georgia or Utah?
Strategy: Vote the sexist asshats out in November!!
