SD Rejects Abortion Bill
Anti-abortion activists had hoped to use South Dakota's tough new abortion prohibition as a test case -- testing the positions of the Supreme Court's newest members, Justice Alito and Chief Justice Roberts. The plan ran into a snag when South Dakota voters rejected the law.
Proponents of the strategy hoped that the state legislature would ignore the will of the voters and pass another ban, this one containing exceptions for rape, incest and life-threatening conditions. The Senate Affairs Commmittee today rejected the new bill by a vote of 8-1. The Committee deserves a shout out for declining to waste time and money by advancing unconstitutional legislation.
