Letter to the Editor
I agree with the Governor of South Dakota when he says, “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.” What I don’t agree with is that a fetus is a member of society. The legislature of South Dakota is insincere and is acting out a fetus fetish to make themselves feel morally superior rather than focusing their scarce resources on child care for working mothers, education, and medical care for children. The worst kind of morality is faked morality and I am wholly unimpressed. Religions people who merely pose as moral to make themselves feel self important drive people away from religion.
