South Dakota's abortion law
This is a bad law. Not only does it violates a woman's right to choose, it isn't even meant to last. The law makes no exception for cases of rape, incest, or the health of the mother. South Dakota's governor and state legislature know that any abortion law that doesn't make these exceptions will be striken down by the Supreme Court, even with two new conservative justices. Their goal is not to outlaw abortion but to score political points during an off year election. Many career politicians love emotional and devisive issues like abortion to distract from all the real problems in this country.
