Jeez, I just can't make up my mind.

Luckily, there's someone like South Dakota state senator Bill Napoli to help all us poor gals make those difficult decisions.

Oh dear! Whatever should I do?

If Napoli's name isn't familiar to you, he was one of the main backers of the almost-total ban on abortions recently enacted in South Dakota. Our man Napoli is a firm believer in traditional values and in the ability of men to make decisions for their womenfolk, as is evident from the comments that he made to a reporter from PBS' News Hour:

When I was growing up here in the wild west, if a young man got a girl pregnant out of wedlock, they got married, and the whole darned neighborhood was involved in that wedding. I mean, you just didn't allow that sort of thing to happen, you know? I mean, they wanted that child to be brought up in a home with two parents, you know, that whole story. And so I happen to believe that can happen again.

Given Napoli's opinions, you might want to take McMillan's advice and give ol' Bill a phone call. Or two.
