A potentially offensive question

South Dakota's governor on Monday signed into law a bill banning nearly all abortions, setting up a court fight aimed at challenging the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States. Read more about it here.

Here is my potentially offensive question: If you were an unborn fetus in South Dakota, would you want to live?

If you are in South Dakota, can it really be considered living? Isn't it more along the lines of merely existing?

(All I know is that I am crossing my fingers for the continued health and well-being of JPS. If that doesn't pan out, well, maybe it's time to send the instructional DVD "Weekend at Bernie's" to his clerks.)

Having never been to South Dakota, it's probably not fair for me to answer this question....but I will anyway. :) Considering such famous people as Bob Barker, Tom Brokaw and Mary Hart were born there, I don't know how else you can top that. So to answer your question, if I was an unborn fetus I could only hope to be born in South Dakota and no where else. -r

Do you *want* trolls on your blog? *Potentially* offensive???

Anywho, Badlands National Park in SD is cool, and brings to mind a decent Springsteen song at the same time.

You know, there's a corn palace in SD. I think any fetus (ask the Idol kid) would rather not live in a state famous for a building made of hog feed.

Hey, why don't you just go straight to the source and ask Kevin Covais?

Since my trip to Sioux Falls was part of the worst year of my life, I don't have fond memories of the place. The strip mall casinos, lame "falls" and absence of civilization don't help, either.

Klh stole my thunder.
I too find the corn palace truly definitive of South Dakota.

Wait a sec..I've got an idea

Corn-siding on structures -- is it lame?

I think it's better than the puke green aluminum siding installed in 1974.

Yeah, but it is arrogant. You don't see any other mediums of siding drawing that kind of attention to itself.

But the corn palace does so much for the children!

Doesn't suck.

I wonder if he would feel differently if his wife or daughter became pregnant as the result of rape.
