If at first you don't revoke a right try, try try again.

You may recall South Dakota's recent attempt to overturn Roe v. Wade.  In language designed to provoke a Supreme Court challenge the good legislators of South Dakota essentially sought to outlaw abortions in virtually all cases without exception.  In something of a surprise move the matter went to the voters in 2006 and was rather roundly rejected precisely because the measure was so extreme.

Not wanting to be outdone by their fellow Daktons to the south North Dakota's House of Representatives has today rejoined the fight in a vote that declares a fertilized egg under any circumstance is a person and entitled to full rights, presumably even if its one of their daughters. While the majority in the House is hoping to stove pipe this to Scalia I'd be just as happy to put it to the people  again.
