Cecilia Fire Thunder

Egalia and Twisty already posted about this, but it's so awesome I just had to share it with you, too. Cecilia Fire Thunder, the President of the Oglala Sioux Tribe on the Pine Ridge Reservation has pledged to open a Planned Parenthood on the Reservation to serve all of the women in South Dakota. She says, "I will personally establish a Planned Parenthood clinic on my own land which is within the boundaries of the Pine Ridge Reservation where the State of South Dakota has absolutely no jurisdiction." [emphasis mine]

You can get an abortion while playing the one-armed bandits. Awesome!!

I can. Sadly for you, Lee, you'll just have to wait for reproductive technology to catch up with my desire to run around impregnating conservative men while they sleep.

This makes me abso-fucking-lutely ecstatic. Now the pro-lifers can have their way--abortions are illegal. And the women of South Dakota who want abortions can still have them.

IT'S TOTALLY WIN-WIN.

B, I don't know if that scares me... or thrills me.
