Geology Lesson

Charles at The Fulcrum posts the most beautiful piece I've seen yet about the Shame of the Northern Plains. Amidst his lovely prose is this horrible, but inspiring fact:
Not a single doctor in South Dakota will perform an abortion, which is why Dr. Miriam McCreary has come out of retirement.

Once or twice a month, the 70-year-old grandmother takes a 45-minute flight from Minneapolis, Minnesota, to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, to perform abortions at the last clinic in the state willing to offer the procedure.
Go see the earth move at "Signs of Erosion".
