Child support and benefits start when? At conception?
And, honest question, if she’s not 18, or even 16, will there be benefits that she’s ineligible for, despite being a parent?
She can spout wild shit like that be because she will never, ever, ever, have to face the consequences of that actually happening. I’m beyond disgusted with these GQP MAGAts.
What a sick asshole.
Kristi Noem going to adopt the baby?
Pay for that poor girl’s therapy?
Neither of those things?
Maybe she should shut the fuck up.
Is there a gofundme for the girl’s travel expenses to a more-reasonable state?
The actual girl who was 10 and had to travel over state lines already did so. This was a hypothetical based on that.
Well, that’s… not good, but relieving to hear
Agreed. And she should resign.
Not really, as no one who has political power should be in favor of forcing children to carry a rapists child. Sadly, this will likely happen again, and some child will be forced to carry a pregnancy.
It’s amazing how fast all these hypotheticals are becoming real world consequences.
The shit women have to put up with on a daily basis is mind boggling. How do they not get stabby?
Fellow south dakotans, please let us vote this monster and its cult followers out.
I agree completely, just trying to find some silver lining in this one specific case so I don’t snap entirely
The Death Cult is nothing if not creative in trying to find new ways to appease Moloch.
and at some point a child will die from a forced pregnancy.
And of course the Governor should also shut the fuck up even if she is willing to do those things because it still isn’t her own bodily autonomy being violated.
At least one clear flaw in the reasoning here is that forcing the 10 year old to have the baby is somehow not a tragedy.
You never get over sexual assault, but compounding the trauma by forcing her to have that rapist’s child and all of the moral, legal, financial - hell just the boring humdrum logistical / temporal - complications of that … how is that not a tragedy?
They. Don’t. Care.
Once the baby is born, good luck to all involved.
