South Dakota’s Governor signed a law requiring a three day waiting period for abortions. This is great news. Just 8 months and 27 days to go.
CNS News reports:
South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard signed a law Tuesday requiring women to wait three days after meeting with a doctor to have an abortion, the longest waiting period in the nation.
Abortion rights groups have already said they plan to file a lawsuit challenging the measure, which also requires women to undergo counseling at pregnancy help centers that discourage abortions.
Daugaard, who gave no interviews after signing the bill, said in a written statement that he has conferred with state attorneys who will defend the law in court and a sponsor who has pledged private money to finance the state’s legal costs.
You can bet that big Abortion is going to fight this one for all its worth but if the law is found constitutional I’d hope other states would follow.
Look, we’ve got waiting periods for buying guns as a way to prevent violence. Why not abortion? Pro-aborts are always saying they want abortion to be safe, legal, and rare. I’d hope that those interested in killing babies for bucks, aren’t liars too.
