Another side to the abortion story...

Click below for the ....

Hero of the Day!!!!


Check out this amazing article. Note that one woman was willing to drive more then FOUR hours for a procedure that would only take 5-10 minutes.

Also note that:
Six women said they chose abortion because they "could not afford the child."
Seven others checked the box saying "the mother did not desire to have the child."

This woman is amazing. I was wondering though, how is this clinic still allowed to perform abortions? I thought none in the state were allowed to, or did it just say that no South Dakota doctors were allowed to perform abortions, and that's how she is able to go there? I'm glad she is helping the women who need it, I was just wondering how it is allowed at all given the law SD thought they were powerful enough to pass...

Yeah. The law has been signed by the governer but won't go into effect until ... sometime this summer, can't recal right now.

But that's if it is unchallenged. Obviously planned parenthood and others will challenge the legality of it and it will go before the courts. Hopefully to be struck down. Until then abortion is still legal.

That's what I thought. I just wasn't sure why other doctors and clinics had then stopped performing abortions altogether if it is not actually illigal.
