Help the women of ...

South Dakota. I know. I don't personally know anyone in South Dakota. Neither do you probably. But we need to help protect reproductive rights in South Dakota because if a proposition passes there that severely restricts and criminalizes abortion rights, the same laws could be coming to a state near you.

Donate NOW to http://www.sdhealthyfamilies.org/ to help fight the proposition banning safe abortions for women in South Dakota. I am personally going to donate one hour of my salary from teaching Adult ESL to fight the proposition.

This law just makes me angry. If you disagree with abortion, then don't have one. You can even choose not to go to a doctor who agrees to peform one. But don't tell other women what to do with their bodies or their lives.

If all of the pro life money went to something productive, like protecting children who are already born, then perhaps the world would be a better place.

If you donate, let Scarpeta readers know!

Also, this is what I listened to this morning (they also have an article if you are not interested in the audio) that inspired this blog:

This makes me angry too! Must be nice to live in South Dakota and have lots of free time to spend reversing laws to protect the rights of women...
