Please take note that it hasn't been signed into effect yet by Gov. Rounds (R), who hasn't given word on which way he'll go. This'll be undoubtedly a painful 15-day wait for me and many folks.

Ban on abortions is voted in South Dakota
By Monica Davey The New York Times
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2006
PIERRE, South Dakota South Dakota lawmakers have voted to outlaw nearly all abortions, setting up the first direct legal attack on Roe v. Wade by a state in 14 years.
After more than an hour of fierce and emotional debate, the senators Wednesday rejected exceptions for incest or rape or for the health of a mother and voted, 23-12, to outlaw all abortions, except those to save a mother's life.
Spread the word, post everywhere, especially talk to your Congressman/woman and Rep (via Congress.org), let papers know...everything.
And you bet your ass I'm working mojo over this one! I encourage everyone to do their own thing, too (be it magic, prayer, meme, you name it)!
