South Dakota State House passes sweeping abortion ban bill
On February 10, the South Dakota House of Representatives passed 54-15 a bill that would any abortion unless a woman?s life was in danger. There are no exceptions made for victims of sexual assault or women who would suffer health problems as a result of pregnancy or giving birth. The bill would punish abortion providers with a sentence of up to 5 years and a $5,000 fine.

The bill, a direct attack on Roe v. Wade, would take away a woman?s constitutional right to choose abortion and make personal decisions in consultation with her doctor and family. Planned Parenthood will continue to challenge the passage of this bill as it heads toward the State?s Senate.
From this morning's e-newsletter. You can check out Planned Parenthood's website here.

Quote of the Day
"When we're considering an innocent life, the health of the mother is not a substantial enough justification to take the innocent life."

-- A chilling statement by South Dakota Representative Matt McCaulley (R), chief sponsor of a recent bill passed by the state's House of Representatives to ban abortion.
