As in, there is no possible way to explain this bill except as legalizing killing abortion providers.
As I recall it's also two fellonies if a fellony is commited against a woman who is pregnant.

22-16-35. Homicide is justifiable if committed by any person in the lawful defense of such person, or of his or her husband, wife, parent, child, master, mistress, or servant, or the unborn child of any such enumerated person, if there is reasonable ground to apprehend a design to commit a felony, or to do some great personal injury, and imminent danger of such design being accomplished.
No, this pretty much says that if anyone is attempting an abortion that both parties agree to, but you do not, and you are either their "husband, wife, parent, child, master, mistress, or servant" you get to lawfully defend against them.

An unborn child can kill their parent legally if they attempt to abort it. (and the twin of the unborn child could attempt to kill the other unborn child)
A gardener (servent) can kill their employer for getting an abortion (master/mistress). Or vise-versa

I am left to wonder at what point shooting politicians becomes justifiable homicide for women who are trying to defend their life and liberty.
I suppose if they're attempting to pass a law that could justifiably harm one of the relations mentioned above, then it is justifiable. I'm no law major or anything, but if they pass this law you could justifiably harm the lawmakers for posing such a threat against your wife/husband/manservant/mistress/master/ect if they work in an abortion clinic.

Well, not to go against the mad King James and Charlton Heston here or anything, but it's "Though shalt not murder" not "kill" as evidenced by the jewish refugees going on a several generation long rampage through the entire region directly following the whole '10 commandments' episode. So at least war is still in.
