Abortion Ban BIll

on Thursday, February 23, 2006

The South Dakota Senate passed a bill yesterday banning nearly all abortions in the state. The bill has now gone to the House which passed a different version earlier. If passed, penalties would be up to five years in prison and would be a felony for doctors or others to perform abortions.

Abortions were legalized back in 1973 in the Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision. I consider myself pretty much Pro-Choice. It is a woman's right to decide if she wishes to have an abortion or not. What if a woman is raped, or if the child is severely deformed and has no chance of even somewhat of a normal life?
