I also just want to point out that South Dakota, the place where they want to legalize murder of doctors who do abortion procedures, has some of the highest rates of rape in the country. And that 1 in 3 Native women are raped in their lifetime— mostly be non native men. Also need to note that South Dakota is home to Pine Ridge reservation— where Wounded Knee happened and where there is still government aggression against the Lakota people. And that it's probably the most impoverished community in the US. And that the life expectancy of the Lakota nation is the lowest in the entire world. And that ALL OF THIS MATTERS. All of it. It's not coincidence. Just needed to get that out.
