The lie hasn't changed, and we still fall for it as easily as ever.  But how can we escape the snare?

Thune to Vote for Referred Law 6

From the Rapid City Journal today:

Despite his belief that any ban on abortion should include exceptions for rape and incest victims, U.S. Sen. John Thune said Friday that, when he steps into the voting booth in November, he will vote in favor of a referred law that does not contain those exceptions.
Unlike many of the hypocrites in the Left-wing pro-abortion blogosphere (and elsewhere on the Left), Thune doesn't just say he's pro-life, he demonstrates it.

Even though he hasn't yet worked out the logic for himself that a child conceived of rape deserves the same chance to live as any other child, and shouldn't be punished for his/her father's crimes, he nevertheless places the priority on saving lives over his reservations about exceptions.

There are many who are otherwise pro-life who haven't thought out the question of exceptions for rape, etc.

Then there are others who have never seen the abortion they'd condemn, yet like cowards and hypocrites hide behind the fact that Referred Law 6 doesn't have an exception that allows an abortion at any time after an alleged rape and with no proof. (Though it does have a common-sense provision allowing emergency contraception within a few days of a rape).

I have no real problem with the person who just hasn't taken the time to think out the issue fully--other than they need to take that time on such an important issue--but anyone who knows darn well they simply want to keep abortion legal and are using this as an excuse to hide behind (which includes many if not most of those actively campaigning against Referred Law 6), they're pathetic cowards who don't even have the guts to come out in the open and defend their position. They aren't even worth listening to.

The "Bribing You With Your Own Money" Initiative

South Dakota Democrats came out yesterday with their "Common Grounds" initiative. The Rapid City Journal described it as

a pledge to cut the growth of state government, increase aid to education and dip into budget reserves to help farmers and ranchers struggling with drought.

The article further said
They denied that they would raise taxes and said their Common Ground campaign would address key economic, educational and health needs in the state while avoiding abortion, same-sex marriage and other divisive social issues.

Knowing how things invariably work with the Left, I'd call it the "Bribing You With Your Own Money to Ignore Anything Moral" Initiative.

Will it entice voters? We'll find out in a few weeks, won't we?
