Well ladies, it’s happened. The House approved the Abortion Ban Bill earlier today. The House passed the bill 50-18 and the Senate approved it 23-12 earlier this week. If signed, it would become law July 1.
“I think the stars are aligned,” said House Speaker Matthew Michels, a Republican. “Simply put, now is the time.”
It looks as if South Dakota isn’t alone. According to the Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive rights organization in New York and Washington, similar abortion proposals are in the works in seven other states: Missouri, Indiana, Kentucky, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Georgia and Tennessee.
That’s some scary business…
