The Mississippi Abortion Bill

Has run into some difficulties:

A bill to ban most abortions in Mississippi died tonight after House and Senate negotiators failed to reach a compromise before a deadline.

The lawmakers were trying to reach common ground on a House-passed bill that would ban abortions in the state except when a woman's life is at risk or she is the victim of rape or incest.

The Mississippi lawmakers will have to wait a while longer before they can decide on the woman's behalf. Not like State Senator Bill Napoli in South Dakota, who already has these powers.

Doesn't he look like the man to decide on these things? So sage and calm and friendly. We are so lucky not to have to bother our pretty little heads with stuff like that in South Dakota.
