Power, Hope

Oglala Sioux say “fuck you” to South Dakota and its anti-abortion laws.

The President of the Oglala Sioux Tribe on the Pine Ridge Reservation, Cecilia Fire Thunder, was incensed. A former nurse and healthcare giver she was very angry that a state body made up mostly of white males, would make such a stupid law against women.

β€œTo me, it is now a question of sovereignty,” she said to me last week. β€œI will personally establish a Planned Parenthood clinic on my own land which is within the boundaries of the Pine Ridge Reservation where the State of South Dakota has absolutely no jurisdiction.”

Hell yeah.
