Citizens of South Dakota Will Have a Choice in November
June 22, 2006
South Dakota Secretary of State Chris Nelson certified this week that the required signatures had been gathered and the restrictive anti-abortion repeal initiative would appear on the ballot in November.
Citizens of South Dakota will have a chance to repeal the state’s extreme ban on abortion. The South Dakota ban outlaws abortion, making it a felony for a doctor to provide an abortion and makes no exception for rape, incest, or to protect the health of the woman.
In March 2006, NAF called the actions by South Dakota Governor Mike Rounds in signing into law the abortion ban, “a direct attack on American women and their reproductive freedoms.”
