South Dakota Abortion Petition Effort

Volunteers pushing to overturn the nation's most far-reaching abortion ban are surprised and delighted by the response as they circulate petitions to put the law up for a public vote. Even in the most conservative corners of this conservative state, both Republicans and Democrats - including some voters who say they oppose abortion - are eagerly signing the petition. In two weeks, volunteers have collected a third of the signatures they need to get a November referendum on the ban.

"I don't want to change the law."" Lost Angeles Times, HeraldNet Link to Article (last visited 4-9-06 NVS)
