  •  Stupid, but not legal... (0+ / 0-)

    Everyone who abhors these potential laws fails to note one very important thing:  the use of deadly force is only ok if the one using it is trying to prevent the commission of a felony...and like it or not, in Iowa, South Dakota, and all other states in this country, abortion is LEGAL. Thus, trying to use one of these hideous laws to justify killing an abortion provider, pregnant mother, protesters outside an abortion clinic, etc., would NOT be legal under the provisions of these laws. As long as abortion is legal under our Constitution, the use of deadly force to "protect" the life of a fetus would still be the commission of a felony and prosecutable because none of these laws make using deadly force legal if there is no illegal act taking place.
