Anti-insomnia morality

Bob Geiger hits it on the head with his post: The Love Ends When You're Born in South Dakota.

"In the history of the world, the true test of a civilization is how well people treat the most vulnerable and most helpless in their society," said [S.D. Governor] Rounds.

That’s an amazing statement coming from the governor of the state that houses the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, which has long been one of the bleakest places in North America from a socio-economic point of view.

If the goal is to truly create a culture of life, then the definition of "life" must encompass the time spent outside of the womb.

If the goal is to sleep better at night, then this action by South Dakota will take care of that - yet also ensure the view that right-wing Christians are self-serving hypocrites.
