Standing up and getting squashed is never fun. For Cecilia Thunder Fire, though, standing up meant getting replaced as tribal leader. As the first female tribal leader, I am sure she is used to the abuse. She is also probably used to fighting for the causes that move her.
So, how could anyone expect her not to take on the egghead anti-abortion laws in North Dakota? How could she look herself in the mirror everyday knowing she had the ability to defy the laws and didn't even try?
Ok... so you feel like your population is dwindling and so abortion in antithetical to protecting your tribe, but, there are better ways to foment fertility than to oppose abortion clinics.
