i have a question for the governor of south dakota

If a pregnant woman insists she will take her own life immediately if denied an abortion, is an abortion necessary to save the life of the mother?

A world in which this becomes the next koan is frightening.

Interesting note: El Salvador, profiled today in the New York Times Magazine as a "Pro-Life Nation" (at least partly due to its post-civil-war government leader's strident conservative Catholicism, the article says), employs forensic vagina inspectors. That's one job that I don't think we need to bring to America, and if we do so, I'd say it's time to move.
