South Dakota's Abortion Ban

This week's New Yorker runs a piece by Cynthia Gorney about South Dakota's abortion ban entitled, "Letter from South Dakota:  Reversing Roe."  The law bans abortion except where the life of the mother is threatened.  Opponents to the law have run a successful petition drive to place the law on the ballot this fall for the citizens of that state to vote on whether they want to keep such a ban.  The article  provides an interesting overview of the current state of the abortion debate and demonstrates how the South Dakota law has divided some within the pro-life movement.  The New Yorker article is not available on-line but an interesting interview between Ms. Gorney and Mr. Ben Greenman discussing abortion and the South Dakota law may be found here.
