South Dakota's state senate voted on Wednesday for an abortion ban aimed at giving the conservative-tilting Supreme Court an opening to overturn rulings granting women the right to the procedure.

Only an unlikely veto by Republican Gov. Michael Rounds could prevent the legislation from becoming law, people on both sides of the issue said. "We hope (Rounds) recognizes this for what it is: a political tool and not about the health and safety of the women of South Dakota," said Kate Looby of Planned Parenthood, which operates the sole clinic providing abortions in South Dakota. "If he chooses to sign it, we will be filing a lawsuit in short order to block it," she said after attending the afternoon debate at the state capitol in Pierre. Proponents have said the law was designed for just such a court challenge.

The timing is right, supporters say, given the recent appointments of Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito to the high court. The two conservatives could pave the way to a decision overturning Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling said women have a constitutional right to abortion.


In no time flat women in South Dakota will be experiencing a very strange time warp. Abortions are soon to be back in the alley, gals. Say goodbye to progress.

:shk:

Seems very likely that this challenge will go ahead as planned, and succeed in overturning a woman's right to choose abortion as an option in at least a few places, if not the entire country.

From later on in the same article:



Proposed amendments to the law to create exceptions to specifically protect the health of the mother, or in cases of rape or incest, were voted down. Also defeated was an amendment to put the proposal in the hands of voters.


:shk:

People, at some point, are going to have to stand up and stop this slow and steady march into the bad old days organized and funded by a few maniacs on the fringe of Christianity. It's really not even in the same sphere as the philosophical teachings of Christ. It's more like a political structure, say, fascism?

Apparently everybody's thinking a few moves ahead, so this should be an interesting legal dance regardless of the outcome.

So the target is to ban abortions in that state and they careless if the mother is as risk or a girl has been rape or impregnated with his own father's, brother's or closes male family member's sperm.

I tell you if you leave it to some of our own radical religious groups in this country we women will not be better than taliban women.


I tell you some of this groups make me sick and I can not believe that even women will support something like this with no exceptions.

Sick, sick people.

Any law that would prevent a rape victim from getting an abortion is sick and anti-woman. Is the government going catholic style or something?
