South Dakota's Three-Day Waiting Period Law Challenged in Court
ArgusLeader.com: S.D. sued on abortion law, by John Hult:
Planned Parenthood has followed through on its promise to sue South Dakota over a new law that imposes a three-day waiting period for women seeking an abortion and requires them to seek counseling from a crisis pregnancy center.
Supporters of abortion rights hope the challenge can block the law from taking effect, but the bill's proponents say that the state will win a legal battle and that the law protects women from being coerced into getting abortions. . . .
