Legislative Development: South Dakota Governor Signs Bill Banning Abortions

South Dakota’s Governor Mike Rounds signed into law March 6 a state statute that outlaws all abortions in that state except for those performed to save a mother's life. Physicians who perform an abortion contrary to the statute could receive up to a $5,000 fines and a prison sentence. It is the most sweeping abortion ban in the nation and sets up a direct challenge to Row v. Wade.  Source:  Robert Marus, ABP News.com.
