SD governor signs chilling effect on women's rights

Industrial chemicals from Monsanto, Bayer and Syngenta abort foetuses all the time but few will hold their feet to the fire about it. Contact with the Big Sioux River can cause spontaneous abortions.

Even the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists says evidence suggests there is no foetal pain until the third trimester begins at 27 weeks.
Gov. Dennis Daugaard signed into law Thursday a bill that would ban non-emergency abortions in South Dakota after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Opponents including representatives from the American Civil Liberties Union and reproductive rights groups have said the measure is unconstitutional as it bans abortions before the point of viability. They also said the measure could create health problems for some pregnant women. "The passage of this bill marks an unfortunate day for women in South Dakota: our state government does not trust us to make decisions about what's best for our families," Susan Kroger, executive director of NARAL-Pro-Choice South Dakota said. "I hope the voters remember these legislative priorities in the ballot box." The state's only clinic that offers elective abortions performs the procedures only up until 14 weeks of pregnancy.

This action is designed to break Planned Parenthood in South Dakota and drive abortions even further underground.

South Dakota Republicans love the foetus but hate actual non-white, non-christian children discarding them as collateral damage in the so-called War on Terror being prosecuted by South Dakota’s outposts for the military/industrial complex.

This measure discriminates against poor and middle income women exclusively. Women who can afford it merely fly to Minneapolis or Denver to have their procedures. It’s important to remember that tribal sovereignty extends to tribes and believe in reproductive rights who could open clinics either within their borders or on off-reservation properties.

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 are not only mean-spirited, they're discriminatory anti-choice extremism.

But, applaud the nutball Republican efforts diverting attention from the party’s culture of corruption where murders and their covers up are commonplace by clogging the legislative session with christianic religionist argle-bargle.
