Here is further proof that the tea party movement (the teahadists) is nothing more than the old religious right. The South Dakota state legislature, dominated by Republican teahadists, has just passed a bill though committee that would make killing an abortion provider "justifiable homicide."
From Mother Jones, "A law under consideration in South Dakota would expand the definition of 'justifiable homicide' to include killings that are intended to prevent harm to a fetus—a move that could make it legal to kill doctors who perform abortions. The Republican-backed legislation, House Bill 1171, has passed out of committee on a nine-to-three party-line vote, and is expected to face a floor vote in the state's GOP-dominated House of Representatives soon."
This is really one of the most despicable laws ever written and will give a license to anti-abortion zealots to kill anyone who disagrees with them. Then, they can cry that they were trying to save a fetus or some microscopic cells or whatever it is they care more about than adult women.
The right really is waging a teahad against the American way of life. Disgusting.
