I’m not just saying this arbitrarily….The governor of South Dakota signed the nations first law banning abortion in more than 30 years…
- The law bans abortion in almost all cases, punishing doctors who perform one with five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. It bans abortion even in cases where a woman is pregnant as a result of rape or incest, or if giving birth would damage the health of the mother.
It creates a narrow exemption in cases in which a physician’s effort to save a pregnant woman’s life results in the accidental death or injury of her fetus.
I think it’s time for North Dakota to assert itself as the coolest state in the Union by creating legislation that gives free abortions to anyone from South Dakota including round trip transportation, follow up medical care, and counseling. Then North Dakota should decriminalize all drugs, ban federal spying, and do something else really cool to show that not all Dakotas suck.
