Kroger named civil rights warrior

A brave South Dakotan is attending the Kurtz family reunion in Brookings County. Susan Kroger has been named executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice South Dakota. Yes, we follow each other on twitter.

Much to my surprise there are several Democrats among the 35 grandkids of Gus and Iva Kurtz. Even more of the great-grandkids have abandoned the party of Janklow.

Cory Heidelberger's name even came up.

In a surprise to no one South Dakota hates women's rights the most. It's a gulag where women seeking certain medical procedures face higher hurtles than in any other state.
The state does not require insurers to cover infertility treatments, nor does it mandate sex education in schools. The Institute for Women’s Policy Research says those reasons and more are why it considers South Dakota the worst state in the nation for reproductive rights, according to a recently released ranking. Included in the organization’s analysis was South Dakota’s decision not to adopt the Obamacare Medicaid expansion, which would have increased the number of women eligible to receive family-planning services.

During the 2015 session Tea teabagger, Isaac Latterell introduced legislation that would endanger the lives of women with ectopic pregnancies.

Nutcase quack legislator, Fred Deutsch
wants to end civil rights protection for all women of South Dakota.

Rich women have full reproductive freedom while women at middle and lower income levels experience chilling effects on their rights. South Dakota's repeated attempts to restrict access to medical care is not only mean-spirited, it's discriminatory anti-choice extremism.
