South Dakota Lawmaker Compares Planned Parenthood to ISIS

ISIS seems to be headlining the news on a daily basis for atrocities unseen anywhere else. Everyone is watching including Republican South Dakota lawmaker Isaac Latteral who thinks Planned Parenthood is worse. He wrote on his website, "Planned Parenthood abortionists in Sioux Falls are similarly beheading unborn children during dismemberment abortions." He also wrote about how ISIS partook in, "revolting methods of execution." Planned Parenthood spokesperson Jennifer Aulwes did not appreciate the sentiment with her response, "I think the majority of South Dakotans would agree that comparing Planned Parenthood to a terrorist organization is just going too far. No matter what you feel about abortion or about Planned Parenthood, it's an inflammatory and really inappropriate comparison."

Latterell is passionate about his position on abortion, and he is sponsoring a proposed law called the "Preborn Infant Beheading Ban." This law is designed to ban late-term "dilation and evacuation" procedures, which many people find barbaric. Critics state that if the bill were to become law, it could be used to justify sending doctors to jail for performing specific forms of abortion procedures. Those who support the ban say those procedures separate the skull from the spine. Aulwes said the bill is medically inaccurate and inflammatory and Planned Parenthood's one clinic in South Dakota does not perform abortions after 20 weeks. Latterell countered Aulwes by saying that the procedure has been performed in South Dakota at least seven times since 2008 and called Planned Parenthood liars. He then concluded his post by paraphrasing Matthew 7:5: "While we rightly take the speck out of our neighbor’s eye by holding ISIS accountable, let us be sure to take the plank out of our own eye by holding Planned Parenthood accountable."
