For months on Norma Mc Corvey, the Roe in Roe Vs wade, the landmark supreme court case that legalized abortion nation wide, has been seeking to reopen
the case.( www.sltrib.com...
) Now the court may be forced to reopen this issue which has so divided our
nation thanks to a bill recently passed in the South Dakota legislature.
Abortion bill passes final legislative hurdle
PIERRE, S.D. - Most abortions would be banned in South Dakota by a bill that received final legislative approval Wednesday, sending the measure to
Gov. Mike Rounds.
I am glad that a state has finally had the courage to step up and demand that this issue be revisited on the national judicial level. This is a
defining issue of our time. The court case that originally legalized abortion was fraught with misinformation and coerced testimony. No matter how
the court decides on the issue this time around I hope they will at least have a fair and open hearing on the matter allowing testimony from medical
professionals on both sides of the issue. A great deal has been learned by medical science about the beginnings of life since the time of this court
case and this new evidence deserves a hearing. Maybe South Dakota will take the place of ?trend setting state? balancing out California?s ultra
liberal influence in initiating new national discussions and policies.
